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

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
