Western governors are paying a political price for trying to implement President Barack Obama’s health care insurance plan, as The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports during Western Governor's Association meetings in Vegas.
Even Democratic governors can’t seem to win. Montana Gov. Steve Bullock, a Democrat, has been spurned by the GOP-controlled Legislature, which blocked his attempts to start a state exchange and expand Medicaid. Now the federal government is running Obamacare in Montana, frustrating users as the Obama administration fixes website glitches.
He has refused pleas from Democrats and advocates for the poor to call a special session on the topic.
Speaking of Obamacare, both of Montana's US Senators- Jon Tester (D) and Max Baucus (D)- repeated the same "if you like your plan you can keep your plan" line as President Obama.
Politifact has now named that "The Lie of the Year for 2013." As for Politifact, well, here's what Mediatrackers points out: (h/t Ron Catlett, Montana Media Trackers)
The mainstream media fact-checking outfit PolitiFact may have just performed the “flip-flop” of the year. The group, which has outlets in several states, named as “Lie of the Year” President Barack Obama’s now infamous claim that under ObamaCare if you like your current health insurance, you can keep it. The presidential claim has been made a lie by the reality of thousands of Americans receiving health insurance cancellations due to new ObamaCare regulations.
What makes PolitiFact’s rating astonishing is that in October of 2008 the group rated the exact same statement by then-candidate Barack Obama as “True.”

So what else has our glorious leader lied about? Let me see. Oh yes,the reason for the Bengahzi attack, the IRS targeting and its conservatives, the Fast and Furious gun running into Mexico, and spying on citizens by the NSA, pop into mind along with his wonderful untrue promise to have the most "transparent" administration in all history. What a freaking hoot! Once a man lies then lies to cover up the lie, when does it stop? How can we trust what he says or others in his non-transparent administration ever say again?

If Obama's lips are moving, he's lying, Tester is a good student as well. It's good to be dah "King"
