"In 2009, just one month after President Obama took office, the Department of Health and Human Services put out a sole-source solicitation titled “Technical Assistance in Evaluating Options for Health Reform.” The contract would be with Gruber, who the document said was the only person “reasonably available to satisfy agency requirements.”" - The Washington PostLet's be clear, Obama and Democrat leaders ( I really hate using that term ) needed 'experts' who were willing to lie for a price. In Gruber's case that's almost $400,000. Four hundred thousand dollars and dozens of visits to the White House and Capitol Hill and now Democrats claim he had little to do with the crafting of the POS legislation called The Affordable Care Act. I have beach front property in Billings if anyone is interested.
"In one especially fishy circumstance, Nancy-Ann DeParle, at the time director of the White House Office of Health Reform, wrote about Gruber’s work on the White House blog on Nov. 29, 2009. “MIT Economist Confirms Senate Health Reform Bill Reduces Costs and Improves Coverage” was the headline on the post.
Have you ever noticed that Fox News will always tell you when referencing a NY Post story that they are part of the same organization? Or commercials that tell you that a person is an actor or paid for their endorsement? Unfortunately for the American people the Obama Administration has never held itself to those sort of truth in advertising standards. With all the crashing hard drives and everything else, I think it's fair to say that Mister Obama and his crew are guilty of chronic dishonesty.DeParle made no reference to the fact that Gruber had already earned hundreds of thousands of dollars working for the administration. She described him as an “MIT economist who has been closely following the health insurance reform process.”
“I don’t know who he is,” Nancy Pelosi told reporters on Thursday. The National Review story goes on to point out that then Speaker of the House Pelosi mentioned him by name at a 2009 propaganda press conference. And the truth is, the American public isn't stupid. The American public was the victim of a very carefully crafted propaganda campaign.
"But “he didn’t help write our bill,” Pelosi declared Thursday. “So let’s put him aside.”That quote again from National review shows the corrupt morality of the Democratic High Command. Apparently Nancy Pelosi has just as easily forgotten about "We the people."
