Who waved the magic wand?

Unless you live in a cave everybody knows Barry is about to break the oath he swore... To preserve, protect, and defend the Constitution by granting amnesty to illegals. The shit is really going to hit the fan on this one! Even the MSM, his trusted ally, may not be able to save him.
If he thought this was a wonderful idea, the American people would just love it, why wait until after the election to make the proclamation?

Declaring amnesty puts Barry on really thin ice. I'm talking impeachment. I brought this up once before and I was told...They'll never impeach the first black president. That was then this is now. An exit poll conducting by Kellyanne Conway's The Polling Company found that three-quarters (74%) of voters believed that "President Obama should work with Congress rather than around Congress on immigration."

So what do we have? In 2015 the GOP owns the House and Senate with 74% of Americans thinking granting amnesty is wrong. Add this to all his other scandals and you would think slam dunk impeachment. It won't be. Within the realm of possibility? Most definitely.

 A montage of Barry acknowledging he doesn't have the authority to grant amnesty. Could he be any more explicit? You be the judge.

Barry to a tee.

Power is not a means, it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship.

George Orwell

Doesn't the rule of law differentiate us from countries such as Venezuela, Iran, Syria, and North Korea?

So how will Barry Chavez suddenly get the authority? Personally I think his lap dog Stedman has a lot to do with it. If you recall  he told lie, after lie, after lie, in the F&F debacle he created. Eventually Stedman ran out of lies and couldn't stonewall the investigation any longer so Issa and his crew could now finally tighten the noose. We all know what happened. Barry came to his rescue claiming Executive Privilege. The problem is you can't evoke Executive Privilege to cover up a crime. Nixon learned that the hard way. We'll never know the total death toll racked up by Stedman. But we do know Barry set him free with no repercussions especially from his other lap dog the MSM. I'm not suggesting Executive Privilege is the same as an Executive Order. Then again... Barry may believe if I could get away with setting Stedman free I could do the same for illegals.  

In the 50's under Eisenhower we were deporting illegals. Now we're importing. 

 I wonder what Lou Costello would say if he were alive today:

He can't grant amnesty but now he can? Isn't this the same guy who said you could keep your insurance?

The Amnesia Contagion

There is an outbreak in DC rivaling Ebola. The Amnesia Contagion. 

First Pelosi contracted it and now it's infected Barry. Pelosi claimed earlier this week "she never heard of Jonathan Gruber". Later a video surfaced from 2009 with Pelosi naming Jonathan Gruber as the architect of ObamaCare. Undeniable, irrefutable, evidence she is a lair.

Now Barry's claiming:

“I just heard about this,” Obama said at a new conference, after wrapping up two days of meetings with world leaders here at the G-20 Summit. “The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed his opinion that I completely disagree with — it is no reflection on the actual process that was run.”

 How come we always find out stuff before he does?

Barry just heard about it has a familiar ring to it.  (He must have been watching FOX because there was very little coverage from the MSM.) "Some adviser who never worked on our staff."  I guess we're supposed to forget the fact Gruber signed in 19 times... a record kept in the WH log book. Are we to believe he was paid $400,000 to fix the toilet?

Not to get sidetracked but lets not misinterpret Gruber. He's not coming clean in the videos because of a guilty conscience. Oh no, what he's doing is bragging about how he pulled the wool over the eyes of the American voter. In one of the videos he stated/bragged about driving with his kids and how excited they got when they asked, "Who was that on the phone" and he said, "The president of the United States." I guess requesting someone to look at his phone records would be asking too much. Where's Snowden when you need him?

So there you have it. Barry and Pelosi never heard of Gruber.
 In a strong show of support Joe Biden issued the following statement:

"There is no such thing as MIT university."


Obama dismisses renewed criticism of health care law

BRISBANE, Australia — President Obama dismissed renewed criticism of his signature health care law Sunday and disputed an assertion from a former architect of the policy who claimed the administration had deceived lawmakers.

Jonathan Gruber, an economist, suggested last year that the administration’s signature health-care legislation passed in part because of the “stupidity of the American voter” and a “lack of transparency” over its funding mechanisms. 

“I just heard about this,” Obama said at a new conference, after wrapping up two days of meetings with world leaders here at the G-20 Summit. “The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed his opinion that I completely disagree with — it is no reflection on the actual process that was run.”

It marked the first time Obama has weighed in on the video, which became public after he left Washington for a week-long trip to Asia. Gruber is an MIT economics professor and health care policy expert who was a paid consultant for the Obama administration on the Affordable Care Act. 

His remarks were captured on a video that recently surfaced on social media and have been seized on by Republicans who want to dismantle the law. Conservatives in both chambers of Congress said they might call on Gruber to testify on Capitol Hill, a process that would reopen the ugly political fight over a law that has already enrolled millions of Americans in new health care plans. 

“We had a year-long debate,” Obama said. “Go look back at your stories. One thing we can’t say is that we didn’t have a lengthy debate over health care in the United States. Every press outlet here should go back and pull up every clip and every story. It’s fair to say there is not a provision in the health care law that was not extensively debated and was not fully transparent.”

(That's the problem...they did)

Not only did he call American voters stupid...

He made over $2 million screwing them! 

But to put it in proper context, the good professor > Liberals< , is rightfully calling you stupid. Why? A vote for Obama was a vote for ObamaCare. How do you like being taken for a sucker? "You can keep your insurance period"     "ObamaCare won't cost one dime". "You'll get a raise from your employer because premiums will go down 3000%". 
All a pack of lies with videos to prove it. In fact most of the enrollees in ObamaCare are the same people who had their insurance cancelled because of ObamaCare. You can't say you weren't forewarned about the pitfalls bill of this magnitude has ever been rammed through without one Republican vote. This should have been a tip off.

Republicans are demanding hearings into videos that have emerged in recent days of MIT professor Jonathan Gruber making impolitic remarks about the Affordable Care Act. 

Why should Gruber's comments matter? Because Gruber is well-known in health-care circles as one of the intellectual godfathers of Obamacare and the very similar law in Massachusetts (sometimes called Romneycare), though people involved in ACA deny he was "an architect" of the ACA. (House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (Calif.) claimed she did not know who he is, even though she once had touted his work.) 

Barrasso, in the Fox News interview, said Gruber's comments about the "stupidity of the American voter" were so reprehensible that "he ought to just give the money back." 

Did Gruber really earn nearly $400,000 from the administration — and if so, why? 

The Facts 

In 2009, just one month after President Obama took office, the Department of Health and Human Services put out a sole-source solicitation titled "Technical Assistance in Evaluating Options for Health Reform." The contract would be with Gruber, who the document said was the only person "reasonably available to satisfy agency requirements." 

As the agency put it, "Dr. Gruber developed a proprietary statistically sophisticated micro-simulation model that has the flexibility to ascertain the distribution of changes in health care spending and public and private sector health care costs due to a large variety of changes in health insurance benefit design, public program eligibility criteria, and tax policy." 

The model, the Gruber Microsimulation Model, is the coin of the realm, in large part because it is similar to the model used by the Congressional Budget Office. That means administration policy-makers could predict with reasonable certainty how CBO would score legislation. Given that legislation in Washington often falls or rises depending on the CBO score, that made this model a very powerful tool for administration officials. 

The first four months of the contract could not be found on the Web site, but in June 2009, HHS renewed the contract for eight months, with a value of $297,600. Gruber in an e-mail confirmed that the first part of the contract was for $95,000. 

That adds up to $392,600 — or "almost $400,000." 

Gruber's consulting was largely unknown at the time, and eventually it became an issue as he had been frequently quoted by journalists and lawmakers who may not have known of his connection to the administration; he also generally did not disclose his connection when writing opinion articles. 

In one especially fishy circumstance, Nancy-Ann DeParle, at the time director of the White House Office of Health Reform, wrote about Gruber's work on the White House blog on Nov. 29, 2009. "MIT Economist Confirms Senate Health Reform Bill Reduces Costs and Improves Coverage" was the headline on the post. 

DeParle made no reference to the fact that Gruber had already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars working for the administration. She described him as an "MIT economist who has been closely following the health insurance reform process." 

(The emphasis on reducing costs in Gruber's report is especially interesting in light of the Gruber video that emerged Thursday. "What the American public cares about is costs," Gruber said in 2010. "And that's why even though the bill that they made is 90 percent health insurance coverage and 10 percent about cost control, all you ever hear people talk about is cost control.") 

In any case, the passage of the Affordable Care Act in 2010 has been lucrative for Gruber and his microsimulation model. All told, he has been hired by at least eight states to provide advice or assist in creating the health-insurance exchanges that are at the heart of the Affordable Care Act: Colorado, Connecticut, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Vermont, West Virginia and Wisconsin. 

Not all of the contracts could be found on public Web sites, but here is a sampling. In some cases, Gruber worked with other consultants, so the fees were shared. These figures also might not represent the final payout, and of course these are gross figures, before expenses. But it's safe to say that about $400,000 appears to be the standard rate for gaining access to the Gruber Microsimulation Model. 

Michigan: $481,050 

Minnesota: $329,000 

Vermont: $400,000 

Wisconsin: $400,000 

Gruber has also earned more than $2 million over the last seven years for an ongoing contract with HHS to assess choices made by the elderly in Medicare's prescription-drug plan.

A lying two ways about it!

Remember when Pelosi said she didn't know anything about waterboarding? Later it was proven she lied.  Well this one tops that.

Her infamous quote... "You have to vote for ObamaCare to find out what's in it" has come back to bite her on the ass.

Speaking of ass this has Pelosi written all over it. She must think no one keeps a record of what she says.

This is her take on Gruber one of the architects of Obamacare who called American voters stupid for falling for their scam.

 She never heard of Gruber right?

What is truly amazing in the liberal rectum of the United States California she gets elected without even campaigning.

Oh...and the IRS had nothing to do with targeting conservatives.


Yet another video shows ObamaCare architect disparaging voter intelligence

I'm looking at this from two aspects. Gruber a college professor who graduated from MIT is one of the architects of ObamaCare. He called the American voter "stupid" for being duped. But to give some credence to what he said...Barry was elected not once but twice!

That said. One would have to question Gruber's own intelligence. This is now the third video in which Gruber admits ObamaCare was written, as he puts it, in a "tortured way" to deliberately deceive the American voter.

To cover his ass he now comes up with this:

"I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately, and I regret having made those comments."

"Off the cuff" and "inappropriately" are liberaleze for telling the truth. He takes his cue from the NYT's who reported Barry misspoke when he said, "You can keep your insurance period no matter what." Just how can you misspeak 27 times? 


Please allow a few seconds to load.

Yet another video has surfaced of ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber crediting the passage of the health care bill in part to American voters’ lack of intelligence.

The Daily Caller posted the third video Wednesday of the MIT professor, this time speaking at the University of Rhode Island in 2012.

Gruber was discussing the law’s so-called "Cadillac tax,” which he said was helped along by “hero” then-Sen. John Kerry. The “Cadillac tax” mandates that insurance companies be taxed rather than policy holders. He said that taxing individuals would have been “politically impossible,” but taxing the companies worked because Americans didn't understand the difference.

“So basically it's the same thing,” he said. “We just tax the insurance companies, they pass on higher prices that offsets the tax break we get, it ends up being the same thing. It's a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.”

The new video follows a second tape played on Fox News' "The Kelly File” Tuesday that showed Gruber speaking on a similar topic at an October 2013 event at Washington University in St. Louis.

Referring to the "Cadillac tax,” he said: "They proposed it and that passed, because the American people are too stupid to understand the difference."

This was similar to remarks he made at a separate event around the same time in 2013. In a clip of that event, Gruber said the "lack of transparency" in the way the law was crafted was critical. "Basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass," he said. 

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, traveling with President Obama in Burma, said he disagrees with Gruber's comments. 

Earnest claimed the bill was written in a transparent way and that it's Republicans who aren't transparent about how they would replace it. 

After the first tape surfaced -- prompting Republican outrage -- Gruber went on MSNBC to express regret. On Tuesday, he said: "I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately, and I regret having made those comments."

But after Fox News played the second tape, GOP lawmakers said it proves what they've been saying all along.

"It confirms people's greatest fear about the government," Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., told Fox News on Wednesday. "Remember, it was Nancy Pelosi who said first you have to pass it before you get to find out what's in it."

As Congress returns for a lame-duck session, on the heels of midterm elections where Republicans won control of the Senate, GOP leaders say they will try once again next year to repeal the law -- or least change its most controversial provisions.
