Come to think of it, that includes me. I didn’t figure it out on my own, though. Thank goodness wonks like Betsy McCaughey, biz folks like Melissa Francis, and bright ordinary citizens like the Tea Party managed to look over the Obama shills of the MSM and question the math and logic. [Bluegrass Pundit has the story, which I missed, of Francis, who now works for Gox Biz, being told to shut up by the management at CNBC, when she said on the air that the numbers didn’t add up and the ObamaCare bill couldn’t work. http://www.bluegrasspundit.com/2014/11/video-melissa-francis-says-she-was.html%5D Guess what? Much of the MSM is still imposing a blackout on the Gruber videos in an attempt to shelter President Obama, the Dems and their liberal signature bill. Is it any wonder more and more people consider the Fox News Network – which includes Fox Business – their main source of news they can trust?
Just a few years back, I spouted the standard liberal lines of hate against Fox and anchors like O’Reilly. Of course, I had never actually watched them, I had merely seen 20-second blips at Crooks and Liars or other liberal haunts. I watched Fox a few times because I was a Hillary supporter in the 2008 primary – told you I used to be a liberal – and a few shows on Fox – I remember Neil Cavuto was one – ran pieces fair to Hillary or at least gave equal time to her operatives. I was quite amazed and kept staying to watch longer and longer.
In this latest video, Gruber and a table of Vermont Democratic legislators of the Vermont House Health Care Committee ridicule a question from a Vermont citizen. Much laughter from the legislators after Gruber mocks the citizen, who turns out not to be a silly adolescent after all but a former WH senior policy advisor to President Ronald Reagan. If they had known that, would it have mattered?
Vermont…. A not-Sissy sibling of mine lived there for a while. It’s pretty but it’s a smug little state.
BTW, it turns out Dr Gruber made a heck of a lot more taxpayer $$ than the $400K from the federal government for writing the Gruber Microsimulation to fool the CBO. Turns out he visited quite a few states as an O’Care consultant and racked up fees of $300-400K for each visit.
Update: More videos, including #6, in which Gruber discusses the deliberate and necessary “mislabeling” of the Cadillac tax as one on the insurance company rather than the individual, owing full well it was a tax on the individual. Bonus videos of WH personnel spreading the lies, including a press conference. M incriminating videos are said to be on the way. Nice Deb does a tremendous favor to us all by compiling the videos I one post. http://nicedeb.wordpress.com/2014/11/14/the-gruber-tapes-1-6/
