Politifact’s controversial “Lie of the Year”: Did the Republicans vote to end Medicare? Politifact says no. Liberal bloggers such as Paul Krugman have long criticized their reasoning on this issue, with Krugman today responding to the “Lie of the Year” with a blog post titled “Politifact, R.I.P." For what it’s worth, it’s a game of schematics: The Ryan plan, which eventually lost popular support among voters, would’ve heavily privatized the system, making it a shell of its former self, but to Politifact, that isn’t the same as killing it.

  5. manicchill said: Democrats continue to insist that the GOP would destroy Medicare, but there’s a big difference between changing and destroying a social program. I think that’s the point the writers at Politifact were trying to convey. They just worded it poorly.
  6. theoccasionalitalic said: I feel like the lies surrounding planned parenthood or something akin to that should have made it.
