    Here where we have this nightmare, death panel socialist medicine that is a destroyer of people..

    If you are not covered for regular check ups, such slow killers like high blood pressure, diabetes, prostate cancer etc. go undetected...and people either die, or go bankrupt [with a high deductible] when they have to start paying for the cost of having their limbs removed.

    This proves to me that Obamacare has no "care" in it at all, that it's primary aim is 'corporate profit"
    Fortunately for me....I have the VA healthcare option. Which is what I am now on. I told Blue Cross Blue Shield and Obamacare to go to hell.

    Debunked a long time ago.

    There's a big difference between considering a policy and not bringing it forward in legislation and doing so. The Republicans never brought forth legislation that contained that. The Democrats did. This is all on the Democrats for writing the legislation, forcing it down their own party members throats and down the throats of the nation and the people.

    You blame Obamacare on Republicans and you think you've won the argument? Um...

    Mitt Romney did something similar years before in MA, and conservatives overwhelmingly voted for him in 2012. This just proved that conservative ideology is based around combating Obama, and that they are pretty apathetic when it comes to the destruction of socialism.

    No lie.

    This Gruber dude is a piece of work.

    I've summarized his expected follow up for DP readers.

    The arrogance and condescension of the left leaves me utterly amazed.
    Even more so now that the Gruber videos have been uncovered and brought forth, where he's basically bragging to his fellow leftists just on how ingenious he is committing fraud on the electorate.

    A real POS this guy is. Real POS most leftists are.

    We can only hope that this sets the leftist / progressive / liberal agenda back decades.

    Or at least can't be disputed by that individual.

    But I agree, drive by posts of smilies is not debate, it's kindergarden on the internet. When they learn to use words, it gets a bit less tiresome

    reading comprehension is a valued skill that should be refined by everyone (they test for it in the military, law enforcement, and college). I never blamed Obamacare on Republicans, but highlighted Republican policies that supported or implemented socialized medicine, and this hasn't reduced any conservative support for the Republican Party. If you want to be taken seriously when making an idealogical stance, you can't support people who don't represent that ideology.

    Now we are told that the "stupidity of the American voter" which ensured it's passage and that whole thing is a deceit.

    So, those who still defend it are what then....the ones who are claimed to be "stupid" by the guy who designed and wrote it? The not stupid are the ones challenging it?

    Is that a fair assessment?
    That seems to be a fair assessment. And if the targets of Gruber's comments can understand an 1,100 page 'tortuous' document they should be able to understand those six lines.

    I believe that Romney was pretty much forced into implementing RomneyCare by the heavily liberal / progressive / Democrat state legislature.

    You taking voting for Romney in the presidential and against Obama as some sort of endorsement of socialized medicine surely is ideologically based distortion if there ever was.
