Obamacare ‘architect’ spills the beans, MSM refuses to pick them up

We know Democrats believe their voters are idiots, but it’s rare to hear one of them admit it loud and proud.

Jonathan Gruber’s past admissions about Obamacare have somehow avoided appearing on the MSM’s radar. Just imagine how horribly Democrats would perform at the polls if we had a remotely honest and unbiased mainstream media:

Since the video was uploaded, the major English and Spanish broadcast networks of ABC, CBS, NBC, Univision, and Telemundo have chosen not to cover this devastating video on either their morning or evening newscasts.

What a surprise!

The networks had no problem citing Gruber as an expert when he was spinning for the Obama administration, so it seems like that same person calling duped voters “stupid” would be news. And it would be — if the guilty parties were Republicans.

Update:

Gruber now regrets his comments. More accurately, he regrets that his remarks were recorded.

The Ebola funding science is un-settled

A few days ago a former NIH head said this about the reason there is no Ebola vaccine:

Government officials and “researchers” blaming a lack of funding for the existence of a problem is like dogs saying “if only I could like my balls more all the problems would go away!”

About that:

Wow, THAT guy’s not going to be invited to many inside-the-Beltway cocktail parties. I’m sure an Obama administration official is en route to Bethesda as we speak to smack him upside the head with the “correct” narrative.

Or, he’ll be threatened with a return to the private sector — a government researcher’s worst nightmare.

Obama’s response after 2nd person tests positive for Ebola: Stay the course

A second person has tested positive for Ebola in Dallas. The new case had been providing care for the Liberian man who died from the virus. The CDC says the latest person to contract Ebola had worn a gown, gloves, mask and shield (but don’t worry, it’s still totally hard to catch).

President Obama’s plan of action remains simple: Stay the course:

But that was only after reporters were allowed to take pictures of Obama on the phone:

The photo op was put together so hastily Obama’s people forgot to put anything remotely resembling work on his desk.

Update:

Why isn’t there an Ebola vaccine? Well, lack of funding of course!

Having solved all other problems at the VA…

Veterans died on secret waiting lists? We’d better clean up the oceans!

I’m more convinced than ever that the government and their accomplices invented the global warming scare as a way to distract from their own incompetence when necessary. And to get rich, of course.

Update:

John Kerry is also focused like a laser on the oceans during this time of crisis in Iraq.

Vox explains why the majority of Americans are too stupid to grasp the awesomeness of Obamacare

Disapproval of Obamacare is now at almost 60 percent, but that’s only because people are too unenlightened, according to Ezra Klein’s new clown show Vox.com.

According to Vox, the millions who have received cancellation notices and premium increases, along with anybody who can see how the law is damaging the economy, are just too dumb to grasp the awesomeness of Obamacare:

Vox is like The Onion and Funny or Die all rolled into one — all sponsored by G.E., the corporation some at Vox used to bash. Perfect.

Speaking of the millions who received cancellation notices, they didn’t even warrant a mention in Vox’s Obamacare cheerleading session. Big surprise.

Loony Tunes Nancy Pelosi: Obamacare is what the Founding Fathers wanted for the American people

“If we can but prevent the government from wasting the labours of the people, under the pretence of taking care of them, they must become happy.” – Thomas Jefferson
***

The lack of lightning strikes when Crazy Nancy says things like this is seriously starting to challenge my faith in a benevolent God:

Democratic leader Rep. Nancy Pelosi emerged into the sunlight April 1 to applaud a rush of sign-ups for Obamacare, and immediately described it as the long-sought goal of Gen. George Washington and the nation’s Founding Fathers in 1787.

“It is really so heart warming for those of us who worked so hard [to make sure] many more people in our country would have access to healthcare,” she told reporters at the stakeout position just outside the West Wing portico.

“There are those critics, bumps in the road, but they’ve only been turbulence. They have not been an obstacle to the American people having healthier life that our that our founders wanted for them,” she said.

Those founders wanted “life — a healthier life — liberty and the freedom to pursue their happiness, not [be] job-locked, but having benefits that having health-care policies that are portable, they could be self-employed, be a photographer — they could start their own business, they could change jobs, they could reach their aspirations,” she declared.

The “freedom to not be job locked” appears in the Constitution?

Nancy Pelosi is crazier than a schizophrenic rat in a meth lab shithouse.

Pelosi: Repubs wasting time making Obamacare an election issue

I hope Stretch Pelosi’s fellow House Dems agree with her and run completely on the glory of Obamacare:

)

Nice try, Nancy. The Florida district that GOPer David Jolly won in Tuesday’s House race is so “historically Republican” that it went for Obama in 2008 and in 2012. Do voters there love Obamacare so much they accidentally voted for the wrong person?

Obama desperately trying to get health care law ‘N Sync

Hey, maybe a guy from ‘N Sync can un-wreck the train!

This is really getting beyond embarrassing. And I can’t help but wonder what the U.S. Marine in the picture is thinking.

Or maybe he’s just there to sing “Bye Bye Bye” to the U.S. economy.

Update: Bass deleted the above tweet because if pointed readers to HealthCare.ORG instead of dot-GOV. Perfect metaphor for the entire law.

Update II:

Second try is a charm:

Hilarious how he lumps Obamacare in as one of the “charities” he works with. Yeah, ALL charities have federally mandated participation or you face a financial penalty.

Month-math, Obamacare style

Setup:

Punchline, via White House Obamacare flack Tara McGuinniss:

Huh? That only holds true in the same reality where Obamacare will save the average family $2,500 a year on premiums and allow them to keep a previous plan if they like it.

Aw: Union that emphatically endorsed Obama whines about Obamacare killing wages

These clowns eagerly ushered in the era of Hope & Change, so break out the tiny violins as they whine about being victims of their own idiocy:

A national union that represents 300,000 low-wage hospitality workers charges in a new report that Obamacare will slam wages, cut hours, limit access to health insurance and worsen the very “income equality” President Obama says he is campaigning to fix.

Unite Here warned that due to Obamacare’s much higher costs for health insurance than what union workers currently pay, the result will be a pay cut of up to $5 an hour. “If employers follow the incentives in the law, they will push families onto the exchanges to buy coverage. This will force low-wage service industry employees to spend $2.00, $3.00 or even $5.00 an hour of their pay to buy similar coverage,” said the union in a new report.

Too bad they had to drag the rest of the country down with them.

The above story needs some music to accompany it:
