He had to lie to people and then he justified it so I can't even get past the irony of that to get to the arrogance of him calling our fellow Americans stupid," Gowdy said.

    "He just proved that he is willing to lie. He's willing to lie because he has the arrogance of thinking that he knows what is best for this country and the citizens and voters do not, so keep that in mind the next time anybody tries to sell you on a big piece of legislation by calling this comprehensive," Gowdy continued, adding that he'd like to see someone from the administration apologize for what Gruber said. "They lied, they got away with it and they got the bill that they wanted."

    During the show, host Megyn Kelly pointed out that the Obama administration presented Gruber as an "honest broker" to the American people when Obamacare was being debated and eventually passed in 2010. She also ran through a list of examples of how many times Gruber visited the White House and his extensive relationship with President Obama as a top advisor and architect of the law......snip~

    This isn't just going to go away.....and going forward. All associated to BO will be seen as willing to lie to get their way.
    As well they should.

    The president, his administration, the Democrats in congress, all lied to pass this POS legislation. How can it possibly be that we should trust them now?

    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice, shame on me.

    Consider that going any further in support of Obama, his cronies, his administration and congressional Democrats is fool me third time, or much, much more.

    No, this isn't going away. Not in the least. This may very well be the milestone about the 2016 Democrat candidates' collective necks, as well it should be.

    Yeah, but most other presidential candidates have a bit more behind those empty platitudes and bumper sticker slogans.
    Obama didn't and doesn't. Big difference.

    It's understandable that you would broaden the net to include all Americans but that won't work. Gruber was pretty clear as to who the Stupids were.

    Just like with these Polls that were out and skewered showing the Democrats had things close, and was proven false. It will be the same over BO care. Hillary will run away from BO care and all know it. She can't get caught up even debating it.

    The Demos lost the War on Women and truthfully everything they ran on is old hat.


    That's the "talking point" they have to keep hitting, that all these people are signing up...to a mandatory program.

    The single most telling number for me, who has lived in a land where EVERYONE gets medical care no matter what, is that when all is said and done, there will still be more 50 million people without any coverage....that happens to be 1.3 times the entire population of Canada. The so-called "greatest nation on earth" and this is what six years of "liberal" Obama leadership provides? We're laughing at you.

    You have fixed nothing. You have merely forced people to buy a product from for-profit companies, period often at more expense for less real coverage.

    Last week I saw my GP, had three blood tests run [blood sugar etc.] and picked up renewal prescriptions including diabetic test strips totaling $664. I paid nothing and was finished two hours after I set out. My premiums are zero and every person living legally in this country has that available....with that as my minimum standard, I can find nothing redeeming in any way about this batch of bull**** called Obamacare; 1,100 pages of legalese to do nothing by divide the entire country.

    In comparison I would say no coverage, no law at all is superior to what Obama has forced you all to do.

    I noticed how you missed mentioning the state legislatures. But that was to be expected. But then you do believe in what is said about BO's special package.....and as we all know. Gruber's point is being reinforced by all in BO peep's Coalition.

    But when talking about Oregon and looking for excuses or trying to make some up along the way. At least try and get them close to reality.





    The state initially paid $134 million to Oracle Corp. to build its online exchange. Cover Oregon also spent more than $3 million on marketing the site, which included radio, television and YouTube ads, spokeswoman Ariane Holm told FoxNews.com last year. Cover Oregon received a month-long enrollment deadline extension because of multiple technical glitches in its system. But fixing the existing system, Cover Oregon officials say, would have meant pouring another $78 million into the growing money pit. Switching to the federal system significantly reduces the cost to around $5 million. I guess I am still saying ‘I told you so,’” said former Oregon Rep. Patrick Sheehan on Fox News. “There is a culture of cover up that goes all the way up to the governor’s office.” Sheehan says there were multiple times throughout the year when the state could and should have, in his opinion, opted for less expensive ways to tackle the costs associated with building and sustaining a state exchange.

    It is still unclear how the state might be able to recoup its exchange funding -- if at all. Cover Oregon was partially financed by a 2.5 percent premium tax on insurers selling the exchange, Cover Oregon technology chief Alex Petit said Thursday. Oregon’s exchange, which was touted by the Obama administration in the beginning as a success story, quickly proved otherwise. It was widely seen as the worst of more than a dozen states that developed their own online health insurance marketplaces.

    An independent investigation ordered by Gov. John Kitzhaber found state managers repeatedly failed to heed reports about technical problems that prevented the exchange from launching. It also found that Oracle did a shoddy job in building the exchange. Four Oregon officials connected to the development of the Cover Oregon portal have resigned......snip~
