Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber: 'Pharma is going to be a huge winner from this bill'

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, a key architect of Obamacare, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014, before the House Oversight Committee health care hearing. (AP Photo/Molly Riley) ** FILE **"I understand that some will try to delay action until the special interests can kill it," President Obama said from the Rose Garden in late July 2009, warning that these opponents "would maintain a system that works for the insurance and the drug companies, while becoming increasingly unaffordable for families and for businesses."

This was hogwash. A couple of months later, as the Wall Street Journal reports now, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber wrote top White House health official: "Pharma is going to be a huge winner from this bill — maybe $15 billion/year in incremental revenue." Gruber then asked, "Any way to go after them harder for financing?"

Gruber may not have been aware that Democratic officials had already "go[ne] after" pharma for financing — financing of the reelections of the Democratic senators who support Obamacare.

When honesty and integrity are fleeting ideals society will suffer. There must be consequences for all the lies and deceptions.

Obamacare  as it is call is not affordable unconstitutional  and  full of taxes and most of all unfair

Grubber is the gift that keeps giving. He lays out how the Dems. have screwed the people.

   Too bad only half the country cares, the other half says ,We want Hillary, We want more.

One of the most fraudulent if not the most fraudulent law ever passed and foisted on the American people and as usual the poor people will suffer again, this bill will not help them much, just make them slaves to the Government and unable to oppose all these political tricks.

This is it in a nutshell-----GOVERNMENTAL CONTROL!

Obama peddles it to the destitute and they say we have nothing so he's giving us something. they are all for Obama care but its the beginning steps to enslavement by the government. SO the poor see Obama as a god, while the remainder see his oppressive games to lower American standards by shutting down parts of our economy because he believes in U. N. AGENDA 21 is the program to rule America AND AMERICANS ARE TOO IGNORANT TO SEE THROUGH IT and know this is the truth. We need to get rid of Obama IMPEACH HIM FOR CRIMES IN BENGHAZI and then resign from any part of United Nations AGENDA 21, it is destroying Americas progress  to a healthy economy.

Dictator Obama Care has nothing to do with health care.

It is an amazement to me that Jonathan Gruber has not had the crap beaten out of him by now! He walks around as one of Obama's henchmen and he acts like he's made of Teflon--Mr untouchable!

He boldly proclaims what his part in Obama Care was, and acts proud of it!

Obama Care is a mechanism to destroy our economy, not help people. The whole thing was worked on before Obama ever got elected and once in he steps up with this manifesto of 3000 pages and tells America this is what we need. Communism at its best!

Florida Sheriff — “I Will Not Enforce Assault Weapons Ban, Neither Will Most Sheriffs”

Dennis Lemma, who is the Sheriff in Central Florida’s Seminole County, told a group of 2nd Amendment activists recently that he would not enforce an assault weapons ban that could soon become Florida law if the “Ban Assault Weapons Now” amendment passes in the Sunshine State.

According to News965, the ban has the following specifications.

The amendment proposed in the state legislature would ban possession of assault weapons, which are defined as “semiautomatic rifles and shotguns capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition at once, either in fixed or detachable magazine, or any other ammunition feeding device.”

Lemma, an ardent supporter of the 2nd Amendment and a first term sheriff who is running for re-election, said this about whether or not he would enforce such a law.

“It’s not only that I wouldn’t, the majority of sheriffs across the state would not do it,” Lemma said in the video. It’s up to the sheriffs what they are willing to enforce.”
