(NEWSER) – "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it." Barack Obama has been raked over the coals for that one in recent months, and now he's getting, umm, honored for it: PolitiFact has awarded the phrase its Lie of the Year Award, it announced on CNN last night. The editors' pick was backed up by an online poll that overwhelmingly agreed. It's the fourth year out of five that the top lie has been health care-related (see 2009, 2010, and 2011), and the three runners-up lies this year are all related to conservative attacks on the law.
