CNN’s Jake Tapper Attacks ObamaCare: “Obama Promised ObamaCare Wouldn’t Do Exactly What Gruber Says it Will Do”

Hat/Tip to Guy Benson at TownHall.com.  The vast majority of the American electorate has known the clusterf*ck that is ObamaCare since it was passed shoved down our throats in 2009. And one can only guess that MIT economist, Jonathan Gruber began to feel that enough time had passed since then that last year he could openly brag about the lies, lack of transparency and “stupidity” of the American voter. Well as Guy Benson over at TownHall.com reports, CNN’s Jake Tapper is having none of it. Earlier this year, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was caught dead-to-rights in a brazen lie that undermines the […]

ObamaCare: Now Less Popular Than Toe Fungus, Which By The Way, Isn’t Covered

    Fewer Americans than ever like Obamacare. And more Americans than ever hate Obamacare. Can I get an “Amen!“? As the Affordable Care Act’s second open enrollment period begins, 37% of Americans say they approve of the law, one percentage point below the previous low in January. Fifty-six percent disapprove, the high in disapproval by one point. The more you know… Americans were slightly more positive than negative about the law around the time of the 2012 election, but they have consistently been more likely to disapprove than approve of the law in all surveys that have been conducted […]

Former WH Czar Contradicts President Obama on Gruber’s Role in ObamaCare

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Steve Rattner, Obama’s former “Auto Czar” who helped to give the UAW controlling interest in GM and Chrysler, and effectively thwarting Federal Bankruptcy Laws in the process, is back in the news. It seems that cars isn’t all this guy paid attention to. But before we get to Mr. Rattner, let’s take a look at how President Obama answered a question about Jonathan Gruber’s statements that have been popping up faster than a mafia hit, not properly tied down in the East River. . . So President Obama, “just found out” about Gruber’s SIX videos […]

Must See Video: The SIXTH Gruber “Voter Stupidity” Video Emerges

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. Once again, lead “Elite Mastermind” Jonathan Gruber has put his foot in his mouth. How this man is able to walk with one foot constantly jammed down his throat is beyond comprehension. . Watch the latest video at video.foxnews.com . . .

It’s Pretty Bad When A Political Hack Like David Axelrod Calls You Stupid

      Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. When a life-long Democratic Political Hack with strong ties to Communism publicly calls you “stupid,” you know your career has jumped the shark. With each passing day bringing new videos of MIT Economist and one of the architects of ObamaCare, Jonathan Gruber calling the American electorate stupid and now, racist; one can only wonder how much Joe Biden is jumping for joy, ebullient that it is not he, with his foot in his mouth, this time.   As one who worked hard to make ACA and its benefits clear, let me say: if you looked […]

Where Was The Media When Jonathan Gruber Was Bragging About ObamaCare?

I have watched the ongoing revelations about Jonathan Gruber and his role in lying to the American people about ObamaCare with no small amount of interest. The reality of the situation is simple for me. We have known all along the liberals who shoved that monstrous piece of legislation down our throats were lying. Many of us tried to warn the country what was going down, what the legislation was intended to do, but we were shouted down. It wasn’t just the liberal politicians and policy wonks who raised their voices against our protests. The media establishment has done everything […]

WH Website Claims Gruber Offered “Objective Analysis”: Fails To Mention They Paid Him

Hat/Tip to Nickarama at WeaselZippers. Well, once again if it weren’t for our intrepid news media, President Barack Obama would be clueless. Obama said today he had “just heard of” the Jonathan Gruber statements, and referred to Gruber as “some advisor who never was on staff”. We noted last night how Gruber himself said he met with Obama in the White House to talk about how to put this all over on people. The OFA truth team even had avideo using Gruber and calling him a “health consultant to the Obama administration”. And the ethically-challenged Obama Administration can’t seem to […]

If You Like Your Plan, You Can Keep Your Plan – Just Fork Over More Money

Hat/Tip to Sandy Fitzgerald at Newsmax. Despite President Obama’s repeated assurances about the average family’s premiums going down by $2500 per year, on average, we’re finding that this just isn’t the case. If you liked the ObamaCare plan you bought last year, you can probably keep it, but it will likely cost you more this time around. According to data unveiled by the Obama administration on Friday night shortly before the health insurance marketplace opened enrollment for 2015, costs for some recipients could go up as much as 20 percent unless they switch to a lower-cost plan, reports The New […]

In 2014 Nancy Pelosi Doesn’t Know Jonathan Gruber: In 2009, She Mentions Him By Name During Presser

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers. See the problem with the older politicians like Nancy Pelosi is that they forget that the internet exists. Or maybe they don’t understand how it works, I mean after all, that’s what staffers and interns are for, right? Well anyway, she either doesn’t know, or doesn’t care because she has done it again. That’s right. She’s lied. * GASP!! * And don’t expect this article to feature her lies down through the years the last two days. We just don’t have that kind of bandwidth! I mean, who do you think we are? WeaselZippers? But I digress. The […]

Third Gruber Video: Obama Is “Not Stupid,” Intentionally Misled American People About Nature Of ObamaCare…

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and Patrick Howley at The Daily Caller. When you’re on the Titanic and it’s going down, you don’t stop and call the icebergs stupid. But Jonathan Gruber may as well be doing just that. He is the principle architect of ObamaCare. The Titanic is the law itself, and the icebergs are the American voters. so what does he do? Well evidently he pops up in video after video in which he basically has been going around telling ANYONE who’ll listen to him how “stupid” the American voters are, and how great Barack Obama is and how it […]

Get Ready For The New And Improved healthcare.gov, Now With “Waiting Rooms”

It’s T minus 5 days and counting for the debut of Healthcare.gov V2.0. On November 15th the second wave of ObamacCare signups goes live, and this time HHS officials are confident that they’re almost ready. But in case they’re not, you can pass the time in our of their snazzy new digital waiting rooms.

Behind the scenes, however, federal […]

U Penn Mysteriously Deletes Video Of ObamaCare Architect Insulting American Voters

Hat/Tip to WeaselZippers and The Daily Caller. Oh boy, where do we even begin with this one? You have a panel of liberals discussing ObamaCare and the “stupidity” of the American voter as if they are elite masterminds that are somehow above the rest of us. ObamaCare architect, Jonathan Gruber says: “In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are gonna pay in; if you made it explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Okay. Just like to help people, transparency, lack of transparency is a […]

Kaboom! SCOTUS To Decide Whether healthcare.gov Enrollees Are Eligible For Subsidies

Just when you thought this week’s good news couldn’t get any better… The Supreme Court has snatched the Halbig case out from the clutches of Obama’s lefty-packed D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals. How big a deal is this? HUGE. As in, earth-shattering kaboom huge. The Supreme Court, moving back into the abiding controversy over the Affordable Care Act, agreed early Friday afternoon to decide how far the federal government can extend its program of subsidies to buyers of health insurance. At issue is whether the program of tax credits applies only in the consumer marketplaces set up by sixteen states, […]

Survey: Majority Of Last Year’s Obamacare Customers Won’t Return

Hat/Tip to Sarah Hurtubise at The Daily Caller. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. Period.” – Barack Obama, Ad Nauseum when he was pushing his “Signature Legislation” down the throats of the American public. Well we’ve since found out that, much like most everything else that comes out of his mouth, this was just another in a long string of lies. And it looks like even the Obama drones are waking up to that hard bit of reality, as well. A majority of last year’s Obamacare […]

Yay ObamaCare, NJ Businesses Again See Double-Digit Health Insurance Increases

  Nineteen times Barack Obama promised to lower our health insurance premiums by as much as $2500 per year. We’re still waiting. Small businesses continue to see double-digit increases in the cost of employee health care, according to a survey released by a major business group Thursday, which found 87 percent of those polled provide coverage. The survey by New Jersey Business and Industry Association found that health-care costs rose by 24 percent in the last year for businesses that have between one and 24 employees, and by 16 percent for those with between 25 and 49 workers. Employers on […]

ObamaCare ‘Bronze’ Plan Premiums Expected to Jump 14% in 2015

Hat/Tip to Kellan Howell at The Washington Times. If you like your plan, you can keep your plan – IF YOU CAN AFFORD TO. The latest in the national shame that is ObamaCare is that the “most affordable” Bronze plans are going up in price next year. In an analysis of expected rates for the biggest 15 cities in the nation, including Washington, D.C., Investor’s Business Daily reported Friday that the cost for the plan could increase by an average of 13.9 percent for 40-year-old non-smokers earning 225 percent of the poverty level. Some examples of this: Plan owners in […]

Captain Obvious Report: ObamaCare Makes Being Healthy Unaffordable

Hat/Tip to Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar and Jennifer Agiesta of the Associated Press. Most Americans knew when Barack Obama began preaching his Hope and Change, that something was up. His professed desire to “fundamentally transform the United States of America” seems to be one campaign promise he is keeping. And his signature legislation, the hysterically named “Affordable Care Act” is bleeding the bank accounts of Americans dry. We’ve already covered his broken promises on keeping your doctor and your plan, and his oft-repeated promise to save the average family $2,500 on their premiums each year. Now a new poll from The Associated […]

Sorry, You Can’t Find Out The Cost Of ObamaCare Until After the 2014 Mid-Term Elections

The Obamacare website is hiding 2015 premium increases until November 15th. Because if you know what it’ll cost, you won’t vote to re-elect Democrats. Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased – after the Nov. 4 election. Enrollment on the Healthcare.gov website begins Nov. 15, or 11 days after the midterm vote, and critics who worry about rising premium hikes in 2015 say that’s no coincidence. Last year’s inaugural enrollment period on the health-care exchange began Oct. 1. “This is more than just a glitch,” said Tim Phillips, […]
