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?

Judicial Watch->  Emails Show Dossier-Connected Obama State Dept Officials Set ‘Face-To-Face’ Meeting On ‘Russian Matter’ Shortly Before 2016 Election

Judicial Watch and the Daily Caller News Foundation on Thursday released 84 pages of documents showing Obama’s State Department was central to pushing the ‘Trump-Russia’ hoax shortly before the 2016 election.

The email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a very close associate to Christopher Steele, show them discussing a ‘face-to-face’ meeting in New York on a ‘Russian matter’ in September of 2016.

Via Judicial Watch:

Judicial Watch and The Daily Caller News Foundation today released 84 pages of documents, including a September 2016 email exchange between then-Assistant Secretary of State Victoria Nuland and Special Coordinator for Libya Jonathan Winer, a close associate of dossier author Christopher Steele, discussing a “face-to-face” meeting on a “Russian matter.”

(In June 2016 Nuland permitted a meeting between Steele and the FBI’s legal attaché in Rome. Nuland told CBS News that the State Department knew about the Steele dossier by July 2016.)

According to an op-ed Winer wrote for The Washington Post in 2018, also in September 2016, “Steele and I met in Washington and discussed the information now known as the “dossier… I prepared a two-page summary and shared it with Nuland, who indicated that, like me, she felt that the secretary of state needed to be made aware of this material.”

A September 17, 2016, email exchange between Nuland and Winer – that was classified in the interest of national defense or foreign policy – discusses the political situation in Libya, but also brings up a “Russian matter:”

Good. I’ll reach out when im there Sunday. [Redacted]

If Victoria Nuland’s name sounds familiar it’s because she has been on Judicial Watch’s radar for a long time and in many of TGP’s previous reports.

In December 2018, Judicial Watch released documents revealing that Victoria Nuland was involved in the Obama State Department’s urgent gathering of classified Russia investigation information and disseminating it to members of Congress within hours of Donald Trump taking office.

In a related lawsuit, Judicial Watch is suing the State Department communications between Ambassador Nuland and employees of Fusion GPS, as well as top ranking Department of Justice, FBI, and State Department officials.

“The Obama State Department was central to the effort to target President Trump with the Russia smear,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “These new emails further show that senior Obama State Department advanced the Russiagate hoax just before the 2016 presidential election.”
