Townhall - Obamacare Architect: Yeah, We Lied to The "Stupid" American People to Get It Passed

Katie Pavlich | Nov 10, 2014

Meet Jonathan Gruber, a professor at MIT and an architect of Obamacare. During a panel event last year about how the legislation passed, turning over a sixth of the U.S. economy to the government, Gruber admitted that the Obama administration went through "tortuous" measures to keep the facts about the legislation from the American people, including covering up the redistribution of wealth from the healthy to the sick in the legislation that Obamacare is in fact a tax. The video of his comments just recently surfaced ahead of the second open enrollment period for Obamacare at 

"You can't do it political, you just literally cannot do it. Transparent financing and also transparent spending. I mean, this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies. Okay? So it’s written to do that," Gruber said. "In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in, you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical to get for the thing to pass. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not."

A few points. 1. Notice how lying to the American people is completely justified by Obama administration standards so long as the ends justify the means. Gruber would "rather have this law than not," and therefore purposely lying about what the law actually is in order to get it passed is completely acceptable. regardless of the negative effects it has on the lives of Americans. 2. Lack of transparency might be a huge political advantage in the short term, but long term there are consequences from voters, which is exactly what we saw last week during the Democrat blood bath at every level of government across the country. 3. Insulting Americans as stupid and deceiving them is a really good way to lose your power on Capitol Hill, which is again exactly what we saw last week in the 2014 midterms. Twenty-eight Senators who voted for Obamacare are now out of the Senate for one reason or another.[...]

APIA - Fed Chair Crosses Line on Eve of Elections 

Dear Monetary Policy Observer,


One of the underlying foundations of the Federal Reserve’s credibility is that it is a strictly nonpartisan entity.  This foundation was shaken this morning as The Hill reported that Janet Yellen made a public appearance with President Barack Obama the night before closely contested midterms.


The Fed’s independence is predicated on its distance from partisan fights, and the Chair should be held to a high standard in that regard.  Publicly appearing with elected officials on the eve of an election will only create undue concern that the Fed is trying to influence politics.

Newsmax - Letters Link Jeanne Shaheen to IRS Targeting Scandal

Tuesday, 04 Nov 2014 07:53 AM

By Melanie Batley

New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen was among six U.S. Senators who exchanged correspondence with a top official at the IRS about cracking down on the political activity of tax-exempt groups, The Daily Caller reports.

Letters obtained by the Caller show that in 2012, the IRS wrote to Shaheen and the other Senators after they contacted then-IRS commissioner Doug Shulman expressing concern about new nonprofit groups engaging in political activity.

"The IRS is aware of the current public interest in this issue," IRS chief counsel William Wilkins personally wrote in a hand-stamped memo on Treasury Department letterhead, according to the Caller.

"We will consider proposed changes in this area as we work with Tax-Exempt and Government Entities and the Treasury Department's Office of Tax Policy to identify tax issues that should be addressed" in designing new regulations and "guidance," Wilkins wrote.

The agency tried to avoid releasing the correspondences, according to the Caller, delaying their release to a major conservative super PAC several times and threatening the group with court action. The PAC, Citizens for a Strong New Hampshire, which was targeted by the agency for scrutiny, had called on the release of the communications in a Freedom of Information Act request.[...]

Personal Liberty Digest - Slouching from infanticide to ‘toddlercide’

Posted on October 31, 2014October 30, 2014

Baby killing (abortion) is a growing industry backed by all kinds of monstrous justification.

Just how intelligent is a race of people who will themselves to extinction? We should call it a moral crisis.

We fear tyranny, war, disease and fear economic depression; but we have absolutely no fear of self-extinction.

Since 1973, there have been 56.6 million abortions. But this is apparently not enough. According to anecdotal evidence presented by pro-life groups Created Equal and Survivors of the Abortion Holocaust, an astonishing number of college students say they support post-birth abortion — or what we commonly call murder.

These murders should take place up to ages 4 and 5, students say, because the children are not yet “self-aware.”

The devaluation of life has become public policy in America, hence the death panels in Obamacare and forced funding of abortifacients in Obamacare healthcare plans. Abortion has long been a central plank of the godless Democrat Party. It’s now joined by homosexual “marriage.”[...]

ALG - Please share Sarah Palin's call to action: 'It's time to stand and fight!' 


Oct. 28, 2014

Dear Liberty Activist,

Click here to watch Sarah Palin's call to action, and don't forget to vote on November 4. And please share with your friends and family!


The November 4 midterm elections are rapidly approaching and Sarah Palin asked that we send you her urgent video message from a speech at the 2014 Values Voter Summit — to remind you to stand and be counted this year.

Washington, D.C. is failing under President Obama's leadership, and only you can do something about it on November 4. There is too much at stake to sit on the sidelines this year.

 "It's time to get off the hind and expand our ranks and inspire others. I think we've all fattened up enough for what's up ahead," Palin said, speaking against apathy.

"So, it is time to stand and fight like your country's future depends on it, because it does," she declared.

Please take the time to watch this video and share it with your friends and family on Facebook and elsewhere. As Palin warned, "time is short."

It's time to stand and fight!

For Liberty,
