Are You Gruber’d Up Yet?

grubergateI don’t hold much hope that anything earth-shaking will come of GruberGate (I am not sure if any news outlet used that yet) as politicians are out to score points for votes and are basically all big government wonks.  It is interesting that the lame-stream media is starting to be dragged into the fray (kicking and whimpering).  The videos are just too powerful to give them coverage to ignore the controversy.  I am not sure that I read this right or maybe I just cannot believe the HuffPo would dare go against Oblama, but the Weekly Standard reported;

Open Mouth…Insert Foot

More Gruber.

This clip isn’t quite as telling as the “Cadillac Tax” was known, even though not widely covered and delayed until after certain elections. It is interesting that this arrogant wonk considers it bravery to go after people’s money. He reportedly was paid over $400,000.00 of your money for his input and advocacy. imageWhy wasn’t he “brave” and give that money back? I just love when rich folks tell the rest of us that we need to pay more in taxes.

A Grubbier Gruber

imageThe media, at least those on the right, are voraciously digging into The Gruber and his wagging tongue. As you may know a case will be heard in the U.S.Supreme Court regarding whether the government can offer subsidies from health insurance exchanges set up by the federal government. These subsidies are the backbone of Obamacare. There’s just one thing in the way. Well there are many things, but this one seems to finally have traction. The Act specifically states that only exchanges set up by states can offer subsidies.

A Peak Inside

imageEvery so often we get a glimpse of how folks think of us. It might be some angry words…some drunken words…a whisper from someone…or as in this case an arrogant slip of the tongue. This video is of Jonathan Gruber who is regarded as one of the main authors of Obamacare. He is an MIT professor so that makes him smarter than most of us. In the following clip Gruber outlines how Obama and other smart guys like Gruber gamed the American system (actually lied, cheated, stole, etc.) to push through the act of seizing one sixth of the U.S. Economy, better known as YOUR healthcare system.
