    No, but one shouldn't rail against one person or party over things they all do. If you want to say it's wrong for all of them, I agree. Put yourself on record. Speak to them all and not just the party or person you dislike.

    Well, now there sounds like a good bit of advice you yourself should follow.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    Some people ate it up. Some people remained skeptical. Some people really could have cared less. For tomorrow, it will be in yesterday's news cycle. As today's will, tomorrow.

    Amazing how the left willingly accepts the apology and ignores previous comments about writing parts of Obamacare and accepting taxpayer money for doing just that. I actually think that liberals do play on the ignorance of their base and continue to be rewarded in many states for that ignorance. Results don't matter, certain rhetoric does especially rhetoric that can be ignored

    But Gruber was referring to the Obama voters.

    Conservatives knew before the ACA was signed into law that it was being sold on a pack of lies by a Political party that's about as trust worthy as your average Crack addict.

    We knew it wouldn't lower premiums or lower deductibles and that it wouldn't be " deficit neutral "

    We knew we wouldn't be able to " keep our doctors " and we knew this law wouldn't be AFFORDABLE.

    We already knew the Tax Increases would be passed onto the Consumers.

    President Obama started his Presidency by lying to the faces of the people that elected him.

    Those that didn't elect him watched his lies and just pointed out the obvious. That he wasn't a leader, a qualified candidate or even a man with integrity.

    He was a Left wing hack elitist who like Gruber, looked down on the average American citizen.

    Amd he never stopped. He's been piling lie on top of loes trying to cover his tracks.

    Americans ARE stupid if they believe the LIES he told today in a attempt to try and cover up for his honesty.

    He was correct when he said the tax increase on Cadillac plans was sold by telling Americans that it would be on the Insurance industry.

    He was also correct when he said those tax increases would be passed onto the Consumer.

    He was correct when he initially said it was written in a tortured way to manipulate the CBOs scoring and he was correct when he said it was sold on a pack of lies.

    He's not sorry for what he said, he's sorry for getting caught.

    Does his BS testimony now mean that Obama didn't lie about keeping your plan and doctor ?

    Does him covering his ass by lying in front of Congress now mean that our premiums are going to drop by 2500 dollars ?

    I could care less what Gruber thinks about the American voter. He's a Liberal elitist.

    Of-course they think we're all idiots.

    But this is more than just a ObamaCare architect getting caught with his foot in his mouth. This Law is horrible, its a economy killer that removes more and more discretionary income out if the pockets of Mlions of Americans who're already struggling to make ends meet.
