    I don't see any denials either.

    Just more of the same moral justifications, as though when it comes to Obama there are different rules.

    Critic:"He lied"
    Obamalemming "He won didn't he? Romney is a moron!"
    Critic: "it was wrong"
    Obamalemming: "so what? Bush lied."


    So, wasn't this Obama brand supposed to be better than the other brands? Wasn't this brand critical of the brand before?

    But it seems he has adopted all the worst of his predecessors [except getting caught getting his knob polished in the Oval Office] and that's OK because Bush, Bush, Reagan, Eisenhower, and Nixon did it too.

    That kind of reads to me like the LOWEST common denominator as opposed to what was promised as a highest common denominator.

    He did say one smart thing. He said Gruber is a "political idiot". Yes he is!
    In fact, like the interviewee, he appears to be a well educated fool, who hangs with similar types. Pity they can't teach Wisdom in the educational system.

    Being too stupid to understand that the people you support define you as stupid is almost too pathetic to watch. It seems many have not yet caught on to the obvious! Have their brains been washed that thoroughly?

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.
    Of course! Canadians pay NOTHING, NEVER EVER for HC...and all of us in the US is FORCED (I TELL YAH!) into the ACA.

    Good grief, what utter ignorance.

    They may feel some shame in passing a bill they never even read, if shame even exists anymore. If they don't then they must share in the voters are stupid idea also.

    "Ignorance"?

    Of what? Your stupid system?

    That's jealousy talking. Your idol strutted out all his promises and the ignorant bought it, only to find out 1] you could not keep your plan and 2] at the end more people than live in my country will have NO coverage.

    Show me where your Obamacare with it's premiums, bureaucracy, pre-approvals and bull**** is even in the same league as what most of the rest of the industrialized world has. At the end of the day you're still 30th or something, behind Cuba and Canada.

    The methods leave more than a little on the table, shouting "ignorant" is actually childish and kind of proves the intent of this thread, the "stupid" bought into this abortion of a law.

    Re: Stupidity of the American Voter?

    So there seem to be a lot of speeches by Gruber where he displays his contempt of the American people:

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?featur...2XcUGok#t=1704

    In this video he is explaining how they sold the tax on health insurance by taxing the insurance providers to exploit the ignorance of the voter.

    Note also that this idiot thinks his audience is stupid too by selling them on the insane notion that the lack of a tax is actually a tax subsidy.

    This would be the third video from this guy.

    The thing that gets me is that when Gruber talks about the idiots that were fooled into supporting the PPACA he is mostly talking about Democrats. Only democrats would fall for the "We're punishing evil corporations, not you!" bull crap. The rest of us have never been fooled by this government doublespeak.

    Luckily, not all voters are irredeemably stupid. I'm still confident that once people start paying attention they will do the right thing, and many of the irredeemables will just stay home like they did during the recent election..
