    I hear the Demos may cut a deal for the XL to try and save her seat. The Repubs don't need to do it.....I doubt she can get re-elected. Its BO care that kills her too.

    HAHAH sadly, no. As evidenced by him pooping all over the set of Morning Joe today.

    Apparently so.

    The people liking some of the key provisions of the ACA isn't relevant to the architect of said law admitting to these malfeasance.

    Megyn is now calling it another scandal for BO and Team. After the second video popped up.


    Gruber video #2: No, really, American voters are stupid; Update: Third video?.....

    Call this Gruber 2: Stupid and Stupider. Jonathan Gruber attempted to escape scrutiny for his October 2013 declaration that Americans are “stupid” and that ObamaCare was designed to exploit that and hide its true nature by saying that he regretted his “off the cuff” comments. “I basically spoke inappropriately,” he told Ronan Farrow, “and I regret having made those comments.”

    Last night, though, a second video emerged from the same time period in which Gruber explained that the ACA passed “because the American people are too stupid” to understand the law. Megyn Kelly wondered last night how this squared with Gruber’s mea culpa on that “little-watched MSNBC show”:

    The tape, played on Fox News’ “The Kelley File,” showed Gruber speaking at an October 2013 event at Washington University in St. Louis. Referring to the so-called “Cadillac tax” on high-end health plans, he said: “They proposed it and that passed, because the American people are too stupid to understand the difference.” .....snip~

Socialism is impossible for a federal government confined to the powers enumerated in the Constitution.
    No you dont. Socialism does not destroy liberty. Authoritarianism destroys liberty.

    It is a scandal, and a real one. But except for TDS who happens to agree with Gruber that he's stupid, none of the leftists seem the least bit bothered by this.

    Once January rolls around, and the GOP takes over the Senate, they should use this to their advantage. This is deplorable, and if Bush's people ever uttered anything close to this, we would be witnessing meltdowns and 187634 threads all over this board, and the MSM would be running the clips non-stop 24/7.

    I'm not one of the "stupid voters" who supported the ACA. Gruber was talking about you. But that's okay, it doesn't seem to bother you one bit. Please don't mind if I point and laugh.
