Gruber to face hostile House panel, tea party ‘I’m with Stupid’ T-shirts

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.

LOL!!!

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 CANT STAND TO LISTEN TO THAT MAN . HE SOUNDs as LIKE A WHINNY WIMP . .

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 babiesYou 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?

ALERT ALERT

1 Billion Dollar Net Worth!!! Oberlin College Claims Poverty To Avoid Paying Punitive Damages To Gibson’s Bakery

Although IRS reports show the university is worth around $1 billion, Oberlin College still claimed poverty to avoid paying punitive damages to Gibson’s Bakery.

As Breitbart News reported this week, the far-left Oberlin College lost a defamation case filed by Gibson’s Bakery after a local jury found the university liable for falsely accusing the family bakery of racism.

The jury ordered Oberlin on Friday to pay Gibson’s $11.2 million in compensatory damages for defamation and intentional interference with a business.

Legal Insurrection reported on Thursday that “the jury awarded a total of $33 million in punitive damages, which will probably be reduced by the court to $22 million because of the state law cap at twice compensatory.”

Legal Insurrection has been following the case for two years — since the beginning — and reports that the school’s only defense against a sizable punitive award is to pretend it is poor, despite holding assets that amount to a billion — with a “b” — dollars and despite paying some of its staffers more than a half-million dollars a year:

Oberlin College was so hellbent on getting the message out that their cash liquidity was in such dire straits — as the eight-person jury was figuring out if they wish to add $22.4 million to the school’s legal verdict bill — that they brought out the school’s president, Carmen Twillie Ambar to the stand to tell that part the story.

“We’ve created deficits … and over the next ten years, if this continues, that is unsustainable and we will not exist,” Ambar told the jury. She even indicated the school’s grants — about $60 million a year from the school, and lots of students get those scholarships as only 10% of them pay the full $70,000 a year — were important to preserve as “the accessibility of education” was a key component of the school’s purpose.

However…

The college has more than $1 billion in funds and net assets according to the latest IRS 990 form, an endowment fund that had grown from $440 million to $887 million in the last 20 years, and because of its non-profit status, pays no taxes on any property it owns.

It also had 18 members of their administration making more than $100,00 a year. The president and chief financial officer of the school were both making more than $500,000 a year.

Grifters gonna grift…

The day after Donald Trump won the presidency, this nutball school apparently decided to take out its impotent woke-rage on this poor bakery, which has been part of the Oberlin community for more than a century.

It all started when three Oberlin students (who would later plead guilty in a plea deal) attempted to steal bottles of wine.

The proprietors caught the students and, while attempting to hold them until police arrived, were allegedly roughed up by the shoplifters. But because the students are black and the proprietors white — and with no respect for due process or facts — Oberlin staffers and students decided some vigilantism was in order and did everything in their considerable power to destroy this local bakery forever, to smite it off the map.

Classes were canceled so hundreds of students could protest in front of the small store while enjoying free food and drink, courtesy of the school. School staffers handed out fliers that basically described the family-owned bakery as the local branch of the KKK.

As a result, the bakery had to lay off almost all of its employees and barely avoided bankruptcy.

In the end, the three shoplifters said race had nothing to do with what happened.

For those of you interested in incurring $200,000 in debt before you even enter the workforce, it looks as though you can major in Mob Justice at Oberlin.
