    You may recall back in 2009 when former President Obama proclaimed that “If you like your healthcare plan, you can keep it.” Because the media felt the need to fluff the former President at all times, that obvious fib went nearly unchecked outside of right-wing sources for nearly five years. Politifact even dutifully gave it a “half true” rating twice. But by 2013, as Obamacare finally kicked in fully, they finally saw the light and rated it their “lie of the year.”

    Obama even went so far as to admit he lied, in very diplomatic terms of course.

    Given that Joe Biden was Obama’s VP at the time and helped spread the falsehood, he obviously learned his lesson and wouldn’t repeat the same lie again, right?

    Nah, he just repeated the same lie again

    " you can keep it... as my administration swiftly phases-it-out. "

    There. I finished joe's comment, which the reporter probably ran out of time and space to add-in succinctly.
