MICHAEL BLOOMBERG FUNDED PRO-TOBACCO TAX STUDY BY OBAMACARE ARCHITECT JONATHAN GRUBER

With just days until Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber testifies before Congress, a 2008 study has resurfaced which reveals that former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg funded research by Gruber on the benefits of tobacco taxes. The study also included assistance from now-Center for Disease Control (CDC) Director Tom Frieden.

Gruber will undoubtedly be grilled next Tuesday on the series of videos uncovered by Rich Weinstein (who also assisted in this report) wherein Gruber brags that deception and “the stupidity of the American voter” helped Democrats and the White House ram Obamacare to passage as law. Gruber will also likely be asked about the millions of dollars he made as an Obamacare consultant to federal and state governments.

But as it turns out, Michael Bloomberg, who is infamous for regulating everything from large sodas to tanning salons to guns, hired Jonathan Gruber in 2008 to write a report on the implications of tobacco taxes, titled A Modern Economic View of Tobacco Taxation. Therein, Gruber thanks Obama’s now-CDC Director Tom Frieden for providing feedback on the paper and for his “very helpful suggestions.

Gruber’s position on cigarette taxes was already established and well-documented. In April 2002, he published an article titled “Do Cigarette Taxes Make Smokers Happier?” that promoted the benefits of higher cigarette taxes. In May of that year, Gruber also wrote an article titled, “Estimating Price Elasticities when there is Smuggling: The Sensitivity of Smoking Price in Canada.” The report pointed out that in Canada in the 1990s there was widespread smuggling "in response to large tax increases." Therefore, Gruber was fully aware of the potential of illegal cigarette sales from tax increases when he wrote his 2008 article for Mayor Bloomberg.

Bloomberg is an Obama hack, as is Gruber. Obama is an Obama hack, as is...well, I think you get my point.

ITS AMAZING HOW A GUY NOBODY EVER HEARD OF IN POLITICAL CIRCLES , KEEPS COMING UP IN THE BAVKGROUND . LIKE A DISEASE THAT WONT GO AWAY . STUNNING .

Yeah and when Bloomberg was using his personal helicopter in NY to travel to Montauk and the Hamptons he would take off form a set-back roof below a large apartment complex and the residents complained of the smell of fuel and exhaust,he would not even answer questions on this obvious NUISANCE! But say 20 oz. soda to him and he goes ballistic,and as he ate a BLT at a restaurant...That's bacon Lettuce and Tomato on white toast with Mayo.

I rest....

Obviously he is the same low life slime ball as his buddy Obama.

We should see the picture by now, the way the education system has taken our children, and these people are it's product. I just love to read the bible, it points out these kind of things were going to happen long before it has. Like were it say a fool leans to the left, and people will become so wise they become fools!

Tobacco Taxing cops? The tax was paid for when the cigarettes were first paid for. 

These people are very sickening.

CNN’s Anderson Cooper said during an interview with Univision anchor Jorge Ramos that he found the demographic decline of white people “exciting”.

“The idea that, you know, whites will not be the majority, I mean, that’s — it’s an exciting transformation of the country, it’s an exciting evolution and you know, progress of our country in many different ways,” said Cooper.

Ramos agreed that whites becoming a minority in America was inevitable and a positive development.

The Judge@V8POW

Anderson Cooper barely able to contain his excitement about Whites becoming a minority.

Not thrilled about being replaced in the country your ancestors founded: you're a "Supremacist"

Understand White People, you're already in a race war.

“There’s nothing really they can do against this incredible demographic revolution. And in 2044, everyone is going to be a minority,” he said.

The media has repeatedly asserted that even raising the “conspiracy theory” of “the great replacement” or the demographic decline of white people puts you on a par with mass shooters and terrorists.

However, it’s apparently completely fine to talk about the issue so long as you proclaim the demographic decline of whites to be a positive thing.
