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

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.
