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?

JUST IN->  Pelosi Announces House Resolution To Condemn Trump’s ‘Racist, Xenophobic Tweets’

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced Monday that Democrats will offer a resolution condemning President Donald Trump’s “racist” tweets against Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Ilhan Omar (D-MN).

Pelosi wrote a letter to House Democrats announcing that they will draft a resolution to condemn Trump’s “racist” tweets against progressive Democrats.

“This weekend, the President went beyond his own low standards using disgraceful language about Members of Congress,” Speaker Nancy Pelosi wrote.

“This morning, the President doubled down on his attacks on our four colleagues suggesting they apologize to him,” she added. “Let me be clear, our Caucus will continue to forcefully respond to these disgusting attacks.”

President Trump taunted the “squad” of far-left first-term progressive Democrats on Sunday, telling them to go back and fix the places they came from before telling the rest of the country what to do.

Trump’s tweets caused an uproar amongst the media and Hollywood celebrity classes, and now, Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D–TX) hopes to capitalize on the president’s message by condemning them in Congress.

Lee said she will draft a resolution of condemnation.

“Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee will be drafting a Resolution of Condemnation for the words used by President Trump about four members of the House of Representatives over the weekend,” Jackson Lee’s office wrote:

So interesting to see “Progressive” Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if they even have a functioning government at all), now loudly......

....it is done. These places need your help badly, you can’t leave fast enough. I’m sure that Nancy Pelosi would be very happy to quickly work out free travel arrangements!

President Trump’s remarks seemed particularly directed at Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN), who is a former Somalian refugee.

Omar said Friday that the president “shouldn’t be in office” and told an audience of high school students that America was failing to uphold its promise to be a just society.

Rep. Omar said Trump was “stoking white nationalism” after he tweeted that some progressive congresswomen should “go back” to where they came from.

“You are stoking white nationalism because you are angry that people like us are serving in Congress and fighting against your hate-filled agenda,” Omar wrote:

Ilhan Omar  @IlhanMN


As Members of Congress, the only country we swear an oath to is the United States.

Which is why we are fighting to protect it from the worst, most corrupt and inept president we have ever seen. https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/1150381394234941448

Rep. Ocasio-Cortez claimed Monday that President Trump’s remarks serve as the “hallmark language of white supremacists.”

President Trump tweeted Monday that Democrats need to apologize for the “foul language” and “terrible things they have said”:

Donald J. Trump @realDonaldTrump

When will the Radical Left Congresswomen apologize to our Country, the people of Israel and even to the Office of the President, for the foul language they have used, and the terrible things they have said. So many people are angry at them & their horrible & disgusting actions!

Donald J. Trump  @realDonaldTrump

If Democrats want to unite around the foul language & racist hatred spewed from the mouths and actions of these very unpopular & unrepresentative Congresswomen, it will be interesting to see how it plays out. I can tell you that they have made Israel feel abandoned by the U.S.
