SMOKING GUN VIDEO: Jonathan Gruber Admitted Obama Was In the Room When Cadillac Tax Lie Was Created

On June 13, 2012, Obamacare Jonathan Gruber was interviewed by Frontline.  He told them that the Cadillac tax issue was addressed in 2009.  Obama knew it was going to be a problem, and they all agreed to lie about it.

What Jonathan Gruber is taking heat for right now, was planned out specifically with Barack Obama. It wasn’t just him. It was all of them, with Obama in the room taking part.

From Jonathan Gruber’s Frontline interview in June 2012.

The next time I see him is summer 2009. The big issue there is that he really wants to make sure I’m moving forward on cost control. I think that at this point he sort of knew we had a good plan on coverage, but he was worried on cost control. So we had a meeting in the Oval Office with several experts, including myself, on what can we do to get credible savings on cost control that the Congressional Budget Office would recognize and score as savings in this law.

And that was a meeting — it was very exciting, once again, because the economists in the room all said the number one thing you need to do is you need to take on the tax subsidy to employer-sponsored insurance. We need one minute of background on this. The way employer-sponsored insurance works is, if you get paid in wages, you get taxed. If you get paid in health insurance, you do not. …

So this tax subsidy economists have been railing against for decades, it’s super-expensive. We forego about $250 billion per year in tax revenues. It’s regressive — the richer you are, the bigger tax break you get. And it’s inefficient because it causes people to buy excessive health insurance. So everyone in the room said, “You want something that is real cost control that we know it will work, go after this.”

Now, the problem is, it’s a political nightmare, … and people say, “No, you can’t tax my benefits.” So what we did a lot in that room was talk about, well, how could we make this work? And Obama was like, “Well, you know” — I mean, he is really a realistic guy. He is like, “Look, I can’t just do this.” He said: “It is just not going to happen politically. The bill will not pass. How do we manage to get there through phases and other things?” And we talked about it. And he was just very interested in that topic.

Certainly looks like yet another opportunity for a Senate or Congressional hearing for an investigation of fraud.

I'm tired of "investigations"!  I want something DONE!  PUNISHMENT IS LONG OVERDUE.  I'm sick of talk, talk, talk.  Crimes have been committed, people need to be in prison!

Alas, there is all talk no action. Nobody is standing up. - There is also just lots of talk on this site but no action. This talk here is cheap venting. That's it. What kind of Americans have we ourselves become? Are we the people really that powerless? Without imagination? Without conviction?

Enough posturing. Follow the law and arrest,prosecute,impeach. Stop making a mockery of our constitution. Stop useless political correctness. I am absolutely sick of traitors,fascist,radicals degrading, destroying our freedom's. Patriots we are just as much to blame as those we have elected. How long are we just going to keep babbling about what we are going to do to take back our country. Obama of all people knows the weakness of the American people. If this was not true there would be no way he could keep pushing us around.

I have answers in this series of short videos.  It means, however, that a lot of people have to do a lot of thinking, debating and persuading.

I'm confident you won't let a couple of superfluous minutes of beach sand get in the way of saving America from tyranny.  Besides, you could make a better video, right?  :-)

Getting rid of Obama would be great, but look at the line behind him.  Are we going to throw the weasels out one by one forever?  I'm advocating a permanent solution.

These people including Obama should be convicted for FRAUD eat the highest degree.They are traitors to this country and to the American people.

Are the People getting this?  Do the People understand this?  IMHO, anyone supporting the Obama in any way is complicit, helping the Obama ruin our country. 

If it comes down to credibility of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid or Gruber,,,,which one do you believe!?!? So far as I know Gruber has never lied to me and on the other hand the others have never once told the truth!

Now who the heck is surprised that obummer was caught in a lie?

Any lawyers out there -- is this considered evidence that can be used at SCOTUS hearings?

ALERT ALERT

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
