GRUBERGATE:The Liar in Chief President Obama Says Regarding Gruber’s Remarks, “No, We Did Not Mislead to Get Obamacare Passed”
GRUBERGATE … THE GREAT OBAMACARE HOAX, LIES, LIES AND MORE LIES.
Yesterday in Brisbain, Australia Barack Obama finally was asked the question, did you misled the American people with regards to Obamacare. Wouldn’t it have been amazing id he said, YES, you caught me. But, in typical Obama fashion, he denied the allegation and then went off on a tangent explaining away the accusation and never really providing any valid facts to support his denial. All you have done in your six years in office is mislead the American people. President Obama, you have already lied about you can keep your insurance plan and doctor, if you like them … why wouldn’t we think you lied about everything else to pass Obamacare?
Ed Henry – Fox News: At you Burma town hall a couple of days ago you tried to inspire young leaders by saying governments need to be held accountable and be responsive to the people. I wonder how you square that with your former adviser Jonathan Gruber claiming that you were not transparent about the health law, because in his words, ‘the American people, the voters, were stupid’ (VIDEO). Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan, to get the bill passed?
Barack Obama: No. I did not. I just heard about this. I get well briefed before I come out here. The fact that some adviser, who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion, that I completely disagree with, in terms of the voters, is no reflection of the process that was run. We had a year long debate Ed. Go back and look at your stories. The one thing we cannot say is that we did not have a lengthy about health care in the United States of America. Or that it was not adequately covered. I would just advise every press outlet here to go back and pull up every clip, every story, and I think it is fair to say that there was not a provision in the health care law that was not extensively debated and fully transparent.
First, Obama just heard about this? You mean he can’t remember one of the many meetings with Jonathan Gruber in the White House? Good grief, Obama is using that tired response of he just learned about the issue from the news? Where have we heard that before, maybe in the following VIDEO.
Second, Just curious, does it make an adviser less credible if he did not work directly on Obama’s staff? There are these people called consultants Barack. Who would actually believe that the architect of Obamacare, also the architect of Romneycare, would actually work directly for the President? This sounds an awful lot like the Cheers episode when Cliff was on Jeopardy answering the final Jeopardy question … “who are three people who have never been in my kitchen.”
Third, read the following quote from Obama, “The fact that some adviser, who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion, that I completely disagree with, in terms of the voters, …” All Obama disagrees with is Gruber’s remark that the American voters are stupid. Obama is not saying that he disagrees with the rest of the misleading comments.
Fourth, Barack Obama claimed that the health care debate was extensive, adequately covered and transparent. Hmm really? So why did Nancy Pelosi famously say, “We Have to Pass Our Bill So That You Can Find Out What Is In It.”
Fifth, President Obama, do you really want everyone going back and taking a look at every clip and news account? Look what happened so far by those on the right and bloggers.
Sixth, fully transparent? The Obamacare you can keep your plan if you like it was already awarded the 2013 Politifact lie of the Year. It would appear you are looking to win the award two years in a row. As Jonathan Gruber said, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage.”
Seventh, no asked the question whether Obamacare was extensively debated. However, what good is a debate when the premise is based on a lie that is being discussed?
On a completely different lie, check out the 2:20 mark of the Obama VIDEO where miraculously Obama comes up with all of these stats for the Healthcare.gov web site now that it is not crashing all the time. Remember last year when Obama minions were asked for the same type of data and we were told they did not have access to it.
Yeah Mr. President, Obamacare is working … that is why the majority of Americans have not even been affected by it because you delayed it.

CBS Face the Nation Host Bob Schieffer Dumb Struck by Obamacare Adviser Jonathan Gruber’s Comments … “I Am Not Wild About the New Plan and How It Became Law Either”
I wonder who was more “dumb struck” this Sunday morning, CBS Bob Shiefer or the public watching CBS and hearing for the first hearing Jonathan Gruber’s name and that an Obamacare adviser called them stupid?
This Sunday on CBS ‘Face the Nation,’ Bob Shieffer provided an editorial that was interesting on a couple of levels. First, how many time do news viewers hear an editorial that is breaking news? CBS News has not covered this story, unless you count the 13 seconds on The Eye Opener. Second, we learned that Shieffer, a lib, is not a fan of Obamacare, nor how the plan became law. However, Bob does need a little learning to have a couple of his questions answered. Mr. Schieffer, Gruber does not think the plan was bad. In fact, he likes it. He, like Barack Obama, knew that the truth of Obamacare would never pass, that is why they lied to the American people. But the ends justify the means and lying to “We the People” is fine in their book.
I was dumbstruck when I heard the comments surfacing from and economist named Jonathan Gruber who was paid $400,000 to help shape the presidents health care plan. First, he told us how the plan passed only because a lack of transparency and this is a direct quote, ‘the stupidity of the American people’. [...] I’ll be honest, while I favor health insurance, I am not wild about the new plan and how it became law either. Here is my question for Mr. Gruber, if all this was as bad as you say, why did you take the money you earned as an adviser? Nor is it to late to give it back. What we have here is another example of the sorry state of American politics where people take money for things in which they don’t believe and whether it is good for the America people is not even a question.
No, what we have here is a sorry state of American politics where we have a President of the United States who perpetrated the greatest hoax on the American people and a complicit media who cared Obama’s water by never asking any questions about a health care plan that many knew was a lie. Let’s get some facts correct, the “stupidity of the American people” that Gruber is referring to is Obamacare supporters, not Conservatives and Republicans. Take a look at the Obamacare polls from the outset at RCP, it has always been widely opposed.
A government, no matter what party is in office, is supposed to be questioned by an unbiased media. The Press is supposed to protect us from an out of control government, not be their propaganda machine. However, today’s MSM has no concept why the US Constitution provided Freedom of the Press.
The First Amendment of the United States Constitution protects the right to freedom of religion and freedom of expression from government interference. See U.S. Const. amend. I. Freedom of expression consists of the rights to freedom of speech, press, assembly and to petition the government for a redress of grievances, and the implied rights of association and belief. The Supreme Court interprets the extent of the protection afforded to these rights. The First Amendment has been interpreted by the Court as applying to the entire federal government even though it is only expressly applicable to Congress. Furthermore, the Court has interpreted, the due process clause of the Fourteenth Amendment as protecting the rights in the First Amendment from interference by state governments.

TV Anchor Melissa Francis Reveals That She Was Silenced When She Questioned the “Math of Obamacare” On the Air at CNBC
MEDIA BIAS: THE LIBERAL MEDIA CARRYING THE WATER FROM BARACK OBAMA …
Melissa Francis, the current anchor of ‘Money with Melissa Francis’ on the Fox Business Channel revealed Friday that she was silenced when she was an anchor at CNBC by execs when she dared question the math of Obamacare. She was told that she was disrespecting the office of the presidency by having the audacity of pointing out the obvious to her viewers, that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work, in that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else. Scolded by management for questioning the government? Really, isn’t that their job and a reason why we have a Freedom of the Press? This was a business show, how could any responsible individual not ask or point out such a simple premise? But not for the suits at CNBC, they might as well called her a racist as well. But when you are the liberal MSM, part of the Democrat/Obama media complex simply in place to be a propaganda vehicle, you must silence all opposition to liberal policy, especially when it is a lie.
Jonathon Gruber telling you that the architects of Obamacare think that you that you are stupid. And most importantly they are counting on your lack of economic understanding. They are not the only villains in this story. They are also depending on the liberal media to cover up the truth. So far NBC, ABC, the Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, and others, have been only too happy to comply. Those outlets have not even mentioned the video evidence from Jonathan Gruber. It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced.
“It’s shocking, but it actually doesn’t surprise me because when I was at CNBC, I pointed out to my viewers that the math of Obamacare simply didn’t work. Not the politics by the way. But just the basic math. And when I did that, I was silenced,” Francis said.
“I said on the air that you couldn’t add millions of people to the system and force insurance companies to cover their pre-existing conditions without raising the price on everyone else,” she continued. “I pointed out that it couldn’t possibly be true that if you like your plan, you can keep it. That was a lie. And in fact, millions of people had their plans canceled.”
After making the comments, Francis said she was called into a meeting by management and told he was “disrespecting the office of the president.”
I think we now know that Melissa Francis was 100% correct.
Liberal Media Double Standard: MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski of The Morning Joe … “If Gruber Were Republican, MSM Would Be Exploding”
I GIVE HER CREDIT, MSNBC’S MIKA BREZEZINKI SAYS … HAD GRUBER BEEN A REPUBLICAN, THE MSM WOULD BE EXPLODING.
The liberal media has avoided the Jonathon Gruber story like Ebola. As VIDEO after VIDEO after VIDEO after VIDEO appear of Gruber, the MIT professor who was also one of the architects and consultants of Obamacare, the liberal media Democrat complex is no where to be found. It is as if the liberal MSM was sucked into a black hole or were suddenly all put in the witness protection program as there has been a “virtual black out” of all Gruber’s remarks as to how Obamacare was passed. What’s the matter, is the media afraid of the truth? Or is it that they know they have now been nailed for the Obama water-carrying sycophants that they are?
You have to give credit where credit is due, even though the Libs at MSNBC tried to down play this. Sorry, Obamacare was the greatest HOAX ever perpetrated on the American people.
MIKA BRZEZINSKI: This Obamacare story, which I saw yesterday and I’m surprised it didn’t emerge . . . It’s an interesting dynamic. This broke yesterday, we kind of, were trying to get to it. Nobody covered it except for some right-wing outlets. Had this been a Republican, what do you think would have happened?
MIKE BARNICLE: Well, he is, this century’s version of David Stockman, who was Ronald Reagan’s original budget director. In 1981, in an extensive magazine piece in the old Atlantic magazine by Bill Greider, former Washington Post editor, David Stockman sat down with him. He was Reagan’s budget director, sat down with Bill Greider for many, many times, to explain the budget. And he said, basically, none of us really understands what any of these numbers are all about, the federal budget.
BRZEZINSKI: [facetiously] So let me guess, nobody dealt with it, right?
BARNICLE: President Reagan had no idea what those numbers were all about.
BRZEZINSKI: Just a few left-wing bloggers brought it up, right? It wasn’t covered? I think there was a huge firestorm, I believe.
HOWARD DEAN: There was.
BRZEZINSKI: Exactly, that’s my point!
BRZEZINSKI: That was a huge gaffe, right? We can all agree on that. I do think had it been a Republican, the media would be exploding.
DEAN: I think there’s a big stature gaffe between the office, the Director of the OMB and a consultant for the — that’s why it’s not a big deal.
BRZEZINSKI: Okay, that’s fair.
Nancy Pelosi Claims She Does Not Know Who Jonathan Gruber Is … FLASHBACK to 2009, Pelosi Touted Gruber’s Work
GRUBER-GATE CONTINUES: NANCY PELOSI, A SENIOR MOMENT? HARDLY, JUST MORE LIES FROM DEMOCRATS …
Embarrassed Democrats try to distance themselves from Jonathon Gruber … House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said Thursday that, not only did Jonathan Gruber not play a significant role in drafting Obamacare, but that she doesn’t even “know who he is.” Really San Fran Nan, is that your final answer? I feel like I am watching the game show ‘Who Wants to be a
Millionaire, LYING DEMOCRAT.’ But of course it would appear that Peosi is trying to “gruber” the American people as she thinks we are stupid too. Has she learned nothing about this invention called video tape and the Internet? In 2009 at the height of the Obamacare debate, Nancy Pelosi, then Speaker of the House, touted Gruber’s work with Obamacare. Which begs the question, does Pelosi need to pass Gruber in order to find out who he is?
Is anyone capable of telling the truth in the Democrat party?
But wait Nancy, there is VIDEO of you to commenting on Gruber’s work. Note to Nancy, when one is the architect of Obamacare and is paid nearly $400,000 as a consultant, they did write the bill. In the wake of Gruber-gate, Democrats are proving Jonathon Gruber correct that they think that Americans are stupid. Pelosi would give such a ridiculous, flipped remark that she does not know who he is when she obviously did. It gets better America, Pelosi’s office came back to correct her misspeak by saying … the minority leader meant that she didn’t know Gruber personally. Too bad that is not what she said, Pelosi said, “She said she doesn’t ‘know who he is,’ not that she’s never heard of him. But what else would you expect from Democrats who think you are stupid.
Q: As you know, the Republicans released their health- care bill this week. And I wanted to get your comment on the bill, and specifically on the CBO analysis that it would cost significantly less than the Democratic plan and that it would lower premiums.
PELOSI: Let me just say this. Anything you need to know about the difference between the Democratic bill and the Republican bill is that the Republicans do not end the health insurance companies’ discrimination against people with preexisting conditions. They let that stand. That’s scandalous, the fact that it exists. I don’t understand why they have not heard the American people, who have said preexisting conditions should not be a source of discrimination.
And secondly, the Republican plan ensures about 3 million more people than now, and ours does 36 million people. So that’s a very big difference in that.
We’re not finished getting all of our reports back from CBO, but we’ll have a side by side to compare. But our bill brings down rates. I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber of MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo versus what will happen in our bill for those who seek insurance within the exchange. And our bill takes down those costs, even some now, and much less preventing the upward spiral.
So again, we’re confident about what we set out to do in the bill: middle class affordability, security for our seniors, and accountability to our children.
Health Insurance Reform Mythbuster – ‘Health Reform And Insurance Premiums’
Opponents of health insurance reform continue to spread myths about the recently-passed Affordable Health Care for America Act. For example, they are claiming that health reform would increase premiums for most of America’s families. But the facts continue to knock these myths down—including a brand-new report from the independent Congressional Budget Office.
MYTH: The House health insurance reform bill would result in higher premiums.
FACT: An analysis of the House bill by noted MIT health care economist Jonathan Gruber concludes that the bill would result in lower premiums than under current law for the millions of Americans using the newly-established Health Insurance Exchange – including those who are not receiving affordability credits to help them purchase coverage. (The Health Insurance Exchange is for those without access to affordable employer-sponsored coverage.) As Gruber states: “the premiums that individuals will face in the new exchanges established by this legislation are … considerably lower than what they would face in the non-group insurance market [under current law], due to the market reforms put in place by the House plan, the mandate on individuals to participate regardless of health, and the market economies of new exchanges.”
- The Gruber analysis shows that, on the Exchange, a family at 425 percent of poverty (whose income of $93,710 means that they would receive no affordability credits) would see their premiums reduced by $1,260 or 12 percent compared to current law. Similarly, the Gruber analysis shows that, on the Exchange, an individual at 425 percent of poverty (whose income of $46,030 means that they would receive no affordability credits) would see their premiums reduced by $470 or 12 percent.
- The annual savings are much larger for lower income populations that receive affordability credits. Under the House bill, when the bill’s affordability credits are taken into account, a family at 275% of poverty (income of $60,640) would save $5,030, or 47 percent in premiums compared to current law and a family at 175 percent of poverty (income of $38,590) would save $9,050 or 84 percent in premiums compared to current law.
- Gruber also points out that, even as individuals and families on the Exchange are paying less, they will be getting more:
- The coverage those on the Exchange get under the House plan would be better than today’s typical coverage in the non-group market.
- For example, it would protect individuals and families from high out-of-pocket costs.
- That’s in addition to other consumer protections in the bill – like ending discrimination based on pre-existing conditions and guaranteeing that your coverage won’t be dropped or watered down when you get sick or need it most.
HOW LOW CAN THEY GO …
According to a new Gallup poll, the favorability for the Democrats has hit a record low following the disastrous loses in the 2014 midterm elections that saw them lose more House seats, lose control of the Senate and lose more governorships. Only 36% polled had a favorable view of the Democratic party, that is a 6% point drop from before the midterms. I think we can now understand why many of the races were not as close as projected and some races like the Senate election in Virginia was even close at all. The polling trend was against the Dems and it showed on election night. The GOP standing with 42 percent favorability, it is the first time since 2011 the Republican party has had a higher rating than the Democrats.
After the midterm elections that saw the Democratic Party suffer significant losses in Congress, a record-low 36% of Americans say they have a favorable opinion of the party, down six percentage points from before the elections. The Republican Party’s favorable rating, at 42%, is essentially unchanged from 40%. This marks the first time since September 2011 that the Republican Party has had a higher favorability rating than the Democratic Party.
These results come from a Nov. 6-9 Gallup poll, conducted after Republicans enjoyed a breathtaking sweep of important contests throughout the country in this year’s midterms. The party gained control of the Senate and will likely capture its largest House majority in nearly a century. Additionally, the GOP now controls 31 governorships and two-thirds of state legislative chambers.
How low can they go? Following the recent video revelations by Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber admitting they deliberately deceived the American people and called them stupid, look for Democrats poll numbers to fall even further.
Obamacare Architect Jonathan Gruber Brags About Lying to the American People … “Call It the Stupidity of the American People”
OBAMACARE FRAUD … FROM THE LIAR IN CHIEF:
Finally we get the creators of Obamacare to call it for what it really is, one big lie and fraud … “Call it the stupidity of the American voter”. For those with any common sense have known from the outset that Obamacare was a sham and a fraud. But for many Americans, as Nancy Pelosi stated in the past, “we have to pass the bill to find out what is in it”. NO WE DIDN’T. Obama, his minions and Democrats purposely wrote this law with a lack of transparency to the American people so that it would pass. Wasn’t this Obama presidency supposed to be the most transparent ever? Yeah America, and I have a bridge to sell you is Brooklyn too.
“You can’t do it political, you just literally cannot do it. Transparent financing and also transparent spending. I mean, this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies. Okay? So it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in, you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical to get for the thing to pass. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
Imagine that, it was a premeditated Obama lie when he said, “If You Like Your Health Care Plan, You Can Keep It”.
From Town Hall.com, brings up a few points …
- Notice how lying to the American people is completely justified by Obama administration standards so long as the ends justify the means. Gruber would “rather have this law than not,” and therefore purposely lying about what the law actually is in order to get it passed is completely acceptable. regardless of the negative effects it has on the lives of Americans.
- Lack of transparency might be a huge political advantage in the short term, but long term there are consequences from voters, which is exactly what we saw last week during the Democrat blood bath at every level of government across the country.
- Insulting Americans as stupid and deceiving them is a really good way to lose your power on Capitol Hill, which is again exactly what we saw last week in the 2014 midterms. Twenty-eight Senators who voted for Obamacare are now out of the Senate for one reason or another.
- Obamacare in its entirely was “sold” on lies. From the promise to keep your doctor to claims insurance rates would go down, not up — to hiding that the legislation was in fact a tax until of course it was necessary to argue it was a tax to save the legislation at the Supreme Court. Government bureaucrats promising an expansion of care knowing care under Obamacare would be limited, etc. Hell, even the official name for Obamacare, “The Affordable Care Act,” is a lie. Obamacare isn’t affordable.
- The process through which Obamacare was shoved through and down the throats of the American people happened as a result of Harry Reid changing Senate rules and without the support of voters. The legislation didn’t receive a single Republican vote in the House or the Senate. Also, remember this?

Conservative Radio Host Rush Limbaugh Threatened to Sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for Defamation
According to The Daily Caller, Conservative Radio host Rush Limbaugh has threatened to sue the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) for defamation and interference. According to accounts, El Rushbo has retained the services of attorney Patty Glaser, who reportedly delivered a letter to the DCCC on Monday notifying the committee of the possibility of a lawsuit demanding a retraction and apology for intentionally misleading the public. Limbaugh is stating that the DCCC defamed him when they made statements attributed to Rush out of context by Democrat fundraising letters trying to ignite the liberal base. The PJ Tatler is spot on when they say, it is extremely difficult for a public figure to win a defamation case and there is none more public than Rush. However, Democrats have made a cottage industry out of try to defame Rush Limbaugh in the past, why would this be any different?
Limbaugh retained the services of lawyer Patty Glaser and demanded that the DCCC “preserve all records in anticipation of a lawsuit for defamation and interference” after the Democratic Party group led a campaign against Limbaugh based on out-of-context statements the host made about sexual assault. Limbaugh’s legal team delivered a letter to DCCC representatives Monday informing them of the legal threat. Limbaugh has also demanded a public retraction and apology.
The Limbaugh team is currently proceeding from the standpoint of litigating and has not yet made a decision as to whether the DCCC could make any concessions at this point to prevent the lawsuit.
The DCCC “has intentionally disseminated demonstrably false statements concerning Rush Limbaugh in a concerted effort to harm Mr. Limbaugh, and with reckless disregard for the resulting impact to small businesses across America that choose to advertise on his radio program” according to the GlaserWeil law firm’s letter to the DCCC, which was obtained by TheDC. “Mr. Limbaugh clearly, unambiguously, and emphatically condemned the notion that ‘no’ means ‘yes.’”
“Let’s be clear: Rush Limbaugh is advocating for the tolerance of rape” the DCCC stated in a September fundraising email after Limbaugh mocked Ohio State’s new mandatory sexual consent guidelines.
This is one law suit I very much hope goes forward.
Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Obama and Democrats in Post 2014 Midterm Election Analysis … ‘Chickensh*t’ Dems, Obama Played Very Cynical Midterm Politics
The Daily Show’s Jon Stewart properly names the Democrats 2014 midterm election strategy … the ‘D*ckless H. Chickensh*t’ gambit.
Ha, Ha, Ha … I don’t agree with Jon Stewart that often, but he pretty much nailed this one. Democrats ran away from issues in red states that they thought were harmful to them and could cost them the elections. In the end they lost those states anyhow.
The “Daily Show” host went on to posit that the tactic was an intentional one used by the Democrats as a means to protect themselves in the midterm elections.
“Senate Democrats wanted to avoid votes on contentious issues, so they wouldn’t have to take unpopular [stances] that might cost them reelection and they got the president to go along with it,” Stewart said. “It’s a well-known political maneuver known as the ‘chickens**t gambit.’ It’s named, of course, for Senator Dickless H. Chickens**t.”
He concluded by accusing Democrats of adopting a do-nothing strategy and avoiding acting on what voters elected them to do.
Pathetic … NAACP Ignores South Carolina’s Tim Scott & Utah’s Mia Love’s Historic 2014 Election Wins (Video)
What does NAACP stand for … Advancement of Colored People, I guess it only matters if they are liberal Democrats.
The NAACP should be ashamed of itself. The following was a statement provided by Cornell William Brooks, President and CEO of the NAACP following the 2014 midterm elections:
“This election was not about who won but the rather the citizens who lost the right to participate. This first election post the Shelby vs. Holder decision resulted in problems in every single state previously protected by the Voting Rights Act. For 49 years, these states were singled out because they had a history of discriminating against American voters. The Election Protection Hotline we manned with other concerned organizations fielded over 18,000 calls yesterday, many in those same states previously protected by the VRA. As we move forward—it is imperative that our newly elected Congress work with the NAACP and our partners to pass Voting Rights Act Amendment legislation that assures that all Americans have the franchise—our very democracy depends on it.”
What the NAACP failed to mention in their post 2014 election statement was the historic wins by Tim Scott and Mia Love. Are you kidding me? How do you not celebrate all blacks, no matter whether you happen to agree or not with their politics. Tim Scott’s win on Tuesday, November 4th made him the first African-American elected to the US Senate from the South since Reconstruction. That is quite an accomplishment. Also, the NAACP failed to mention that Mia Love was the first black Republican woman to be elected to the House of Representatives.
How does an organization that claims to be about the advancement of blacks fail to mention such note worthy and historic accomplishments? Sadly, the NAACP is all about liberal politics, not the advancement of a race.
