A tea party group said its members will greet Jonathan Gruber, the man at the center of Obamacare’s troubled public image, with T-shirts reading “I’m with Stupid” when he shows up to defend himself Tuesday before what’s likely to be a hostile congressional panel.
Republicans call Mr. Gruber, a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, a key architect of the Affordable Care Act, while Democrats are rushing to put distance between them and their erstwhile star after several rounds of caught-on-tape remarks about the “stupidity of the American voter” and the need to game budget rules to pass Obamacare were made public.
The T-shirts, which were produced by Tea Party Patriots, are another symbol of how controversial Mr. Gruber has become as he prepares to face the House oversight committee.
“With all that’s going on in the Capitol, we didn’t want Mr. Gruber’s curtain call to go unnoticed,” said Jenny Beth Martin, Tea Party Patriots co-founder. “We commemorated his appearance, and in the spirit of the Season, we’d like to offer the Obamacare architect a dozen. He can use them as stocking stuffers for the economically unsophisticated.”
Despite some gains, the health care law continues to suffer in public opinion from unpopular mandates, its shoddy rollout and President Obama’s inaccurate pledge that everyone could keep their health plans under his overhaul.
The latest stupidity from Obamacare, I've heard, is that now all restaurants and anybody that sells any kind of food must put the calories of that food on the menu for us to see. I am sorry but when I go to a restaurant, I buy what I want to eat. I don't care that I might get something with less calories instead. I am going to eat what I want, when I want. That is all there is to that. I don't count calories anyway. I count grams of protein, carbohydrates, and mono-unsaturated fat. Calories don't mean anything.
Today was some what interesting to see more Rat's on the good ship Barry O' Bastard , isn't amazing to see such intelligent people look so foolish, it was very easy to see on questing by Democrats the witnesses had facts and numbers to go with there answers but when Republicans asked questions everyone couldn't remember Anything, why ? did not have any solid information or they would get back to them, one Congressman just receiced some information he had asked for in September 2013
The witnesses today where some of the best Stooges Obama has come up with in a long time, he had them trained better then any circus show,
The part that has me so disgusted is how little respect any of the witnesses show or contempt for the American citizen, this is there health care you are acting so glib about so light hatred because to you there are just numbers ... the day will come when you and the rest of the socialist Progressives in the Democratic party Will all rot in Hell !

I would rather listen to him than Obama, at least he has spoken the truth, once or twice !
Mr. Schribner -
You have summed up the Conservative campaign for the next two years in three succinct paragraphs!
Voters need to apply what you have written and re-evaluate issues such as Gun Control, Obamacare, Agenda 21, Common Core.
This scepticism needs to be applied to every proposal put forth in Congress (either Chamber, by either party). It also would preclude 'fast-tracking' any legislation. Each proposed Bill needs to have a single focus (no "omnibus"/ "comprehensive" legislation). Each Bill has to be posted for a minimum of 15 days before being brought up for floor discussion. You remember? All those things we were promised were going to happen! (I thought all those things were put into operation some time back? Did I miss something there?)
well no promotion for him
this shows the arrogance of the lib left
This Congressional panel should "fry" this guy, verbally and personally!
Obamacare gives psychiatry access to pregnant mothers and their unborn babies. You know what that means, psychotropics, anti-depressants, anti-anxiety, and anti-psychotic drugs. Talk about pre-cradle to grave government control. That's sick...Semper Fi Nam 66-67
Fantastic Retort to a supercilious, elitist piece of excrement. Seems the M.I.T. whiz doesn't even get it!! What does he teach at M.I.T. ,Basket -Weaving?
