Goldberg: Myths to ditch in 2014, for both sides

The Beltway consensus seems to be that 2013 was a bad year for the same reason nearly every other recent year was bad: polarization and partisanship.

WASHINGTON - The lie of the year, according to Politifact, is "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it." But the story of the year is a nation waking up to just how radical Obamacare is - which is why it required such outright deception to get it passed in the first place.
