It is unclear whether the person in charge of the Lois Lerner “disappeared IRS emails” strategy was also Dr. Gruber, but whoever conceived of the idiotic idea that the fatal failure of a local hard disk means that emails which are stored on at least one server […]

The most “transparently” folsky, if data-fabricating, administration in history may be watching its Obamacare dreams go up in flaming house of cards, even as not a single mainstream media outlet, including ABC, NBC, or CBS, will be covering Obama’s “historic” executive action on immigration from […]

Jonathan Gruber Spawns Hashtags and Hilarious Videos
As a little addendum to our recent look at the arrogant, but surprisingly honest (in unguarded moments) government advisor Jonathan Gruber, we would note that he has by now spawned numerous Twitter hashtags. These range from the simple #Gruber, […]

Confused at just what Jonathan Gruber, friend (or not friend) of President Obama and Nancy Pelosi, said(and didn’t say)? Here is the two-minute idiot’s guide to the Obamacare architect (or not Obamacare architect)‘s controversial comments (and just who did and did not know him)…

This is pure comedy — and a gross insult to the American public.
As an anchor at CNBC, I questioned the president’s claim that adding millions of people to the health insurance rolls would be free. How was that mathematically possible? If people with pre-existing conditions didn’t […]

We all remember the passage of the monstrosity called the “Affordable Care Act” orObamacare. We remember how it was passed, who passed it, and the infamous words of Nancy “we have to pass it to know what’s in it” Pelosi. Many spoke […]

In 2015 the government will be activating some new “incentives” embedded in the Affordable Care Act in an effort to get more people to sign up.
