President Obama in an off the cuff remark said that, “if you like your health care plan, you can keep it.” However, things turned out differently in real life. So the Lie of the Year award by PolitiFact went to him for such blatant hypocrisy.

Promises are meant to be broken. At least that is precisely what the President of the United States inadvertently did after he made a blustering statement several times. It concerned his health care plan. President Obama thought he could live up to the high standards he had set to solve America’s medical woes. But the results were not even close to the desired goals he wanted to reach.

The leader of the Free World spoke in a manner of concession to the masses that if they wanted to keep their health care plans, they were welcome to do so. To quote medical lingo, Obama’s reassurance was nothing but a placebo. It was a sugar pill that was taken on faith and solved nothing in real life terms.

Not only did many people not get the much-needed medical amenities they were waiting for so eagerly under Obama’s leadership, many in fact had their health care plans cancelled. Words instead of deeds were all that Obamacare proved to be in the end. Finally, after much criticism and resentment over the empty promise by Obama, the president was forced to issue an apology to the nation.

However, when you are in such a high position and you make such a huge blunder, there are institutions which will mock you. Politifact named this faux pas as the Lie of the Year and gave its prize to the President. It seems like the Affordable Care Act has not measured up to its reputation as a healer of those who are hurt. The words that slipped from the President’s mouth have really come back to haunt him.
