Skip to comments.Oklahoma AG Cites Jonathan Gruber To Rebut Government Expert Jonathan Gruber (Pruitt v. Burwell)
Posted on 07/30/2014 7:28:13 PM PDT by SteveH
Yesterday, the State of Oklahoma filed a motion to apprise a federal judge of Grubers remarks. Oklahoma attorney general Scott Pruitt was the first to challenge the Obama administrations illegal taxes and subsidies way back in September 2012 (Pruitt v. Burwell). Solicitor general Patrick Wyrick noted Grubers remarks are highly relevant, because the government itself has repeatedly relied on Gruber as an expert in these cases:
Defendants themselves relied on evidence from Professor Gruber in an attempt to show the supposed implausibility of Congress having made something as important as the subsidies hinge on the States willingness to establish exchanges. Plainly, this newly-discovered evidence squarely controverts Defendants evidence on this point, and establishes that it is far from implausible that the drafters or Section 36B intended to withhold tax credits and subsidies from states who declined to set up exchanges in order to place pressure on those states to set up exchanges. To the contrary, it is not only plausible, it now appears to be demonstrably true.
The litigants in Pruitt are awaiting rulings on cross-motions for summary judgment.

Screws have stopped. She's breaking up...
Just so no one gets the idea that this particular case could result in the law being declared unconstitutional... This case is about the Obama administration violating its own law. It presumes the law is constitutional. Why this is a big deal, though, is that if the judge (and eventually the Supreme Court) rules correctly, the law will become even more unpopular and expensive, and will fall under its own weight even sooner. Unless, of course, the uniparty “fixes” it to keep the fraud going a little longer.
Great timely find! Thanks!
it now appears to be demonstrably true.????
Lemme fix that:
“it now appears demonstrably true.”
Much more accurate.....

Vote-crazed Dummycrats are gonna hang on---b/c the h/care web site is first and foremost a voter-registration site.
Obamacare is a HUGE voter fraud machine----plugging unsuspecting enrollees into Democrat voter rolls.

A local couple called 10News concerned after they received an envelope from the state's Obamacare website, Covered California. Inside was a letter discussing voter registration and a registration card pre-marked with an "x" in the box next to Democratic Party.
Watta surprise (cackle). Turns out Obamacare is a vehicle for consolidating Dummycrat power.....w/ a multi-billion dollar slush fund.
The Untraceable $8 Billion ObamaCare PR Budget---truly govt fraud at its finest. Egged on by Pelosi, no one in Congress told Americans about Section 4002---which mandates an $8B untraceable fund to "promote" Obamacare (apparently b/c Boobamba had so little confidence in his signature legislation).
In 2010 Taxpayers are extorted $500 million, in 2011, $750 million, 2012, $1 billion, 2013, $1.25 billion, 2014, $1.5 billion and in 2015 and on, $2 billion........
....the reasons for all those O/Care delays, fixits, exemptions, waivers, extensions, etc, are becoming crystal clear......
Some observers note that the Democrat-controlled Senate passed Obamacare "after a series of unsavory transactions that purchased the aye votes of several shrewdly extortionate Democrats"....with a huge pile of money still unaccounted for.
The most unsavory was Landrieu's $4.3 billion "Louisisana Purchase."
THE PAPER TRAIL IS HUGE Sen Landrieu (Scumocrat-LA) sold her aye vote in what Forbes Magazine dubbed "The 'Louisiana Purchase" that included a massive $4.3 Billion to Landrieu
FORBES REPORTED the Democrats nailed Landrieus support for Obamacare w/ a greenback bribe. Landrieu, critics believe, pledged her vote in exchange for some $200 million more additional federal funds for Louisiana. Except that, due to a drafting error, the law ended up giving Louisiana $4.3 billion: more than twenty times the assigned amount. MORE HERE http://www.forbes.com/fdc/welcome_mjx.shtml
BACKSTORY In the fall of 2009, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) was trying to get the necessary 60 Dimocrat votes to pass the Affordable Care Act. He needed every Dim on board, which gave waffling senators a great deal of leverage. In Landrieu's case, she connivingly saw that selling her aye vote could get her maybe $200 million federal dollars. Obama complied. Reid chalked up another vote for Obamacare. But not the measly $200 million but $4.3 billon was attached to the Obamacare bill earmarked for Landrieu.
How $4.3 billion to Landrieu was calculatedly attached to the Obamacare bill, and how Obama and Reid failed to catch and fix it, is yet another indictment of the Obamacare atrocity. The payoff to Landrieu should be investigated as an indication of how EVERY Democrat came to vote for Obamacare....and will help elect more lock-stepping Democrats.
(Wow, had not heard about this)
