Trailing the three-term incumbent among next year's primary voters, Cheney used harsh rhetoric on her first Sunday show appearance since announcing her run to cast herself as a fresh and aggressive alternative to Enzi. She said the president knowingly lied when he repeatedly promised that Americans who like their plans would be able to keep them.
“There's no question but that he lied, and we're all paying the price for it now,” Cheney told "Fox News Sunday." “There's no way he could not have known the truth. There was very clearly a situation in which they were thinking, you know what, the media never hold us accountable; they're not going to hold us accountable here.”
