Forrest Gruber’s plan to deceive Americans

WASHINGTON, December 10, 2014  –  John Gruber has now had his day in front of Darryl Issa’s Oversight Committee during which Gruber was asked “Are you stupid?”  To which he answered, “I don’t think so, no.”

If you haven’t heard of MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare architect who said in a video that his complicated design of President Obama’s signature health care law was meant to pull the wool over the eyes of “stupid” American voters, you obviously get all your news from one of the three major networks, ABC, NBC and CBS.

According to the Media Research Center, the major broadcast networks “have chosen not to cover this devastating [Gruber] video on either their morning or evening newscasts. During the day … Gruber’s comments were covered on cable news channels CNN and Fox News Channel…”

Speaking of Fox, the highest rated cable news channel aired a third Jonathan Gruber video in which he and fellow academincians have a good laugh at the expense of, who else, “stupid” American voters for their failure to grasp that Obamacare taxes on health insurers “pass on higher prices [to consumers]… It’s very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” said a giddy Gruber.

Gruber is speaking of the government’s favorite tax – the “indirect tax.”

This is how our targeting friends at the IRS defines it: “A business may recover the cost of the taxes it pays by charging higher prices to customers. A tax shift occurs when the business shifts its taxes to others.”

Can you say Obamacare?

As Gruber mentioned in another video, Obamacare is not a health care program. It’s an income redistribution scheme. High Obamacare premiums and deductibles funnel a healthy chunk of your income to others… like the millions of poor and unskilled Central Americans flooding across our porous border.

According to the Center for Immigration Studies, Obamacare’s expansion of Medicaid benefits “immigrants and their U.S.-born children… The data show that immigrants and their children accounted for 42 percent of the growth in Medicaid enrollment from 2011 to 2013. Immigrants benefited more from Medicaid expansion than natives because a much larger share of immigrants are poor and uninsured. It seems almost certain that immigrants and their children will continue to benefit disproportionately from Obamacare.”

It will be interesting to see if President Obama’s impending executive action on amnesty for millions of illegal aliens includes unilateral executive action amending Obamacare to give these fast-track citizens-in-the-making access to your income, ah, government-run health care.

When in 2012 President Obama was running for re-election, he campaigned hard on the issue of “income inequality.” He called it “the defining challenge of our time.”

A Gallup poll “found 70% saying that it is extremely or very important that the federal government in Washington enact policies that increase the equality of opportunity for people to get ahead.”

In 2013, Forbes magazine reported that the fortunes of the nation’s 1,426 billionaires totaled $5.4 trillion. The same magazine also estimates that unfunded liabilities for Social Security and Medicare stand at around “$127 trillion, which is roughly $1.1 million per taxpayer and nearly double 2012’s total world output.”

The planet Earth doesn’t have enough billionaires to meet the wealth redistributional dreams of brilliant mathematical masterminds like MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber.

Democratic President Barack Obama hired Gruber to help him craft Obamacare. Massachusetts Republican Governor Mitt Romney hired Gruber to help him craft Romneycare before that. Obama got elected president twice. Romney, it seems, wants to run for president again in 2016.

It appears there’s more than enough stupidity to go around.

  • Ha! I was noodling with the notion that Gruber was from MA, so I went on a hunch that Mitt might have not known him like Nancy Pelosi doesn’t know him. We can’t be the only two who made that logical google leap into the past to come up with this: Mitt Romney can’t run for President now, so thoroughly has Gruber tainted the sausage-making.

    THIS PRESIDENT IS
    SINKING US EVEN DEEPER INTO THE FINANCIAL TOILET.

    SECURE OUR BORDERS! YOU’RE PAYING FOR ILLEGAL ALIEN WELFARE UNDER AN
    unhinged OBAMA.

    This President has brought upon us a lifetime of hurt; his lies,
    and his administration forcing us into gray line of Communistic deceit,
    corruption and its negative antagonistic inept performance of which we need to
    be dependent on this copious government for everything. That we need to welcome
    the millions of foreigners, who cannot comprehend the English language, refuse
    to learn it or assimilate into our culture of Judeo-Christian tradition?

    Can you even imagine how many more family members will be
    sponsored on the amnesty for all these illegal aliens already squatting here?
    Can you even imagine the rush at the open border regions right now for
    foreigners have heard Obama’s declaration ‘BLANKET AMNESTY’? They have been
    slipping through borders and arriving on jets with their ‘Anchor Babies’.

    Although a negative reason if Amnesty passes, American taxpayers
    for the first time will learn how many illegal aliens are really embedded in
    our nation?

    Over the course of a lifetime, 11.5
    million illegal immigrants granted amnesty would receive $9.4 trillion in
    government benefits after paying just $3.1 trillion in taxes.” As stated by the
    Heritage Foundation analysts.

    Obamacare is killing health care,
    jobs, our schools and the economy (the real economy, not the fantasy press
    releases from the Oval Office) driven by a biased media and now for the next
    two generations the expenditure of violating the law by this President is going
    to cost our children, grandchildren and great grandchildren of
    $9.000.000.000.000 over 50 years. It will be a Shame on American Taxpayers for
    allowing this to happen to our country. But the Democrat who was one of the
    creators of the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) was caught in a video that the
    American People are STUPID.

    Where
    upon one of those fine distinctions rests whether Congress will retain the
    tools they need to stop Obama’s amnesty or whether they will unilaterally cast
    aside the exclusive power of the purse the Constitution grants Congress to rein-in a
    lawless President and allow Obama to settle millions of illegal aliens in our
    country. WE CAN DERAIL THIS AMNESTY BY CUTTING FUNDING, BUT YOU MUST
    DO YOUR PART. Tell Speaker
    John A. Boehner and Capitol
    Hill Republicans that you voted for them to stand tall and fight against Obama
    plot and Reid plan to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens and that you
    future support of the Republican Party will stand or fall on their opposition
    to granting amnesty to illegal aliens. (1-866-220-0044).

    dismantling of the Rule of laws,
    sovereignty, citizen rights and even our of abolition of our military top
    commanders and service men and women, which is to protection against our
    enemies foreign an domestic. Illegal Immigration is rapidly becoming the
    priority for Americans, because they see its impact on the bleak economy and
    lost jobs. TELL THESE SPINELESS
    DEMOCRATS & CONSERVATIVES THERE OUT IN 2016, IF THIS MINDLESS AMNESTY
    PASSES. This is the number for the
