    Moar right-wing lies...

    For the Last Time, Fannie and Freddie Didn't Cause the Housing Crisis
    The housing bubble occurred during a period when Fannie and Freddie's market share of high-risk mortgages dropped.

    They dont act in good faith, they hide behind a mask of good faith. One need only look a bit deeper to see how these characters really are.

    This is interesting, a poll on the number of Americans who thing they are stupid when it comes to the ACA:

    32% Think Americans Are Too Stupid to Understand Obamacare - Rasmussen Reports™
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think we know how the liberals voted.

    In all seriousness, this was one of the architects of the bill, demonstrating exactly how he intended to mislead the American people.

    Don't NCL's make up about 30% of the electorate?

    which he says among other things:

    In those 2011 remarks, Gruber said that, despite the fact that most members of his profession agree employer-based health insurance tax breaks were bad policy, “it turns out politically it’s really hard to get rid of.”

    He said that the Affordable Care Act helped to do away with this system in two ways. The first, “by mislabeling it, calling it a tax on insurance plans rather than a tax on people when we all know it’s a tax on people who hold those insurance plans.” And secondly, by delaying the implementation of this tax until 2018. “But by starting it late, we were able to tie the cap for Cadillac Tax to CPI, not medical inflation,” Gruber said.

    “This was the only political way we were ever going to take on what is one of the worst public policies in America, and every economist should celebrate this,” Gruber insisted.

    “It’s on the books now,” Gruber added of the 2018 implementation deadline at which point he anticipated employers and unions would seek to have this tax repealed. “At that point, if they want to get rid of it they’re going to have to fill a trillion dollar hole in the deficit.”
    (*sarcasm*) Just WONDERFUL the position these lying bastards put the electorate and the country. Fill in a $1T hole in the budget due to ObamaCare and it's fall out. Almost makes Iraq AND Afghanistan look like a 'good' thing.

    Well, they've left one hell of a mess for the Republicans to clean up. Are these idiot parties in competition who can leave the larger mess?

    Most disappointingly, I don't think that anyone is going to be any the wiser for it.

    So desperate for a redirect onto anything else but the topic?

    I know that. I am about as anti-aca as anyone but even if the people, the electorate knew what he said back then or even if he said before the the vote on the aca in congress, do you think it would have changed one vote in congress? I don't. If Americans were against the ACA, 38% for, 58% against and you still had the democrats pass it, do you think even if only 30% of all of America was for it, the democrats would change one vote. No, it was they parties agenda and they were going to pass it even if 99% of all America was against it.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.
