Democrat Rep. Steve Rothman is apparently a slow learner. He’s still is making speeches claiming that Republicans voted to “end Medicare, ” though this whopper has had more holes shot in it that Clyde Barrow’s last getaway car:
Fact-checkers across the country have debunked the claim numerous times over the last year, but that didn’t stop U.S. Rep. Steve Rothman from shouting these nine words during a recent debate on the House floor
And it even earned Politifact’s “Lie of the Year” award:
Democrats have been making similar claims since the Republican-controlled House signed off in April 2011 on a Medicare reform proposal advanced by U.S. Rep. Paul Ryan … Our PolitiFact colleagues have issued False or Pants on Fire rulings … ultimately designating it as the 2011 Lie of the Year.
You’d think these knuckleheaded Dems would have come with a more plausible lie by now. But, as I say, they’re slow learners.
