MSNBC roasts White House for downplaying Gruber's role in Obamacare

MSNBC's "Morning Joe" slammed the Obama administration after emails were recovered suggesting that MIT economist Jonathan Gruber had a larger role in developing the Affordable Care Act or Obamacare than initially acknowledged.

The Obama administration was not "fully forthcoming" on Gruber's role, author Mark Halperin said on "Morning Joe."

"I owe my Republican sources an apology, because they kept telling me he was hugely involved and the White House played it down," Halperin said. "They were right. The Republicans were right … I think they [White House staff] were not fully forthcoming."

Obama's team distanced itself from Gruber last November after it was revealed that Gruber had used phrases such as the "stupidity of the American voter" and noting the "huge political advantage" politicians had in passing Obamacare with little transparency. Gruber apologized before Congress and called his quotes "glib," the Free Beacon reported.

But emails released to the Wall Street Journal indicate that Gruber was in frequent touch with the White House about the healthcare law and his press interviews about the law.

According to the Journal, Gruber was in touch with the director of the Office of Management Budget, and advisers to President Obama like Joshua Furman and Ezekiel Emanuel. One email showed Gruber was invited to meet with Obama himself.

The Abomination BHO is Obama-Nation and Gruber are both Anti-United States of America Everything, and PATHETIC PATHOLOGICAL LIARS!!

It's hard top figure out who is the biggest liar Obama or Hillery it looks like the bigger liar you are the higher you will clime up in the Democrat party the party built on 100% bull Shit .

Well knock me over with a cooked spaghetti noodle, MSNBC said this? FOX better look out, they may not be the only source of truth on tv soon if this keeps up. 

When the sky becomes yellow (no longer blue), it becomes extremely difficult to convince "John Q. Public" that "The sky is still blue!"

MSNBC is still composed of a gaggle of morons. There are unedited videos all over the web that prove Gruber said what Republicans claim. MSNBC stuck their heads in the sand.

Maybe Halprin is souring on Obamacarethat, but whether it is a sign of a left wing awakening, is highly doubtful. Maybe Halprin will get fired for it.

Halprin does have a track record of saying things the left doesn't like, but he got chastised and had to apologize for something he said in this video http://www.msnbc.com/morning-joe,

but after listening to what Halprin said twice, I can't figure out what he had to apologize for.

Duh !! The only people who didn't already figure this out are those that live in an area with no communications' with the outside world or common sense. It's the old Chinese proverb . One picture worth a thousand words. In this case several video clips of Gruber shooting his mouth off are worth a million words from our worthless leftist MSM.

How can this surprise anyone from this corrupt administration and the liberals ? Expect these guys knocking on your door soon if you voted for Romney last election.

next to climate change...obamacare is one of the biggest scams ever forced onto the American people.

Obamacare is one of the worst nightmare. What kind of idiot would force people to buy insurance and bully them to pay him if they do not buy the insurance? This is worst than a scam, this is just plain ignorant.

Makes no difference to the Progressives, they will continue to support this lying administration.

ALERT ALERT

Deep State Treason:  Former State Dept. Official Under Trump Tells China To Quit Negotiating Until Trump Is Removed In 2020

Deep state traitors no longer hide their deep hatred for the American people —

Mrs. Susan Thornton, the former acting assistant secretary of state in the Trump administration, told her Beijing audience to stop negotiating until President Trump is removed from office in 2020.

Until July 2018, she was Acting Assistant Secretary for East Asian and Pacific Affairs at the Department of State and led East Asia policy making amid crises with North Korea, escalating trade tensions with China, and a fast-changing international environment.

The Conservative Treehouse and The South China Morning News reported:

A former official in the Trump administration has said that China can weather the storm brought by the trade war with the United States but might have to “keep steady, keep their heads down and wait” for change in the White House.

Susan Thornton, former acting assistant secretary of state to US President Donald Trump, told a gathering in Shanghai on Wednesday that she hoped a trade deal between the US and China could be concluded by next month.

But the reality was that it would “take a while” for China and the US to talk about cooperation again, Thornton, who in 20 years rose to become the US State Department’s chief negotiator for East Asia and Pacific affairs, told the South China Morning Post.

“I want to be optimistic,” said Thornton, whose 27-year career in Washington ended in July. “I tell all our foreign counterparts they should keep steady, keep their heads down and wait. [They should] try to not let anything change dramatically.”

“If this sceptical attitude towards talking diplomacy continues in this administration, you might have to wait till another administration,” Thornton said at an event held by National Committee of US-China relations and Shanghai’s American Chamber.
