    Former MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, described by many as the chief architect of Obamacare who famously explained how the health-care law was adopted because of the “stupidity” of American voters, has been “fired for fraud.” It was the Wall Street Journal that earlier reported there were 20,000 pages of emails sent by Gruber between January 2009 and March 2010 regarding his consultation for the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services. He later was found to have said, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voters or...

    All three broadcast evening newscasts tonight ignored a new audit showing that the government may have paid out subsidies to ObamaCare purchasers who were not eligible for them. "Some people who signed up for healthcare through ObamaCare may not have been qualified for the benefits they received, according to a government audit released Monday," Sarah Ferris of TheHill.com reported today. The Wall Street Journal's Stephanie Armour filed her story on the matter last night, and it appeared on page A3 of Monday's paper under the headline "Audit of Health Exchanges Finds Fault With Controls."

    Donald Trump sat down with Obama's NBC News' Katy Tur and was asked why people should believe his numbers on illegal immigration when he led the birther movement and sent investigators out to Hawaii to investigate whether Obama was not born here. Watch Tur press Trump over the issue pleading that Obama released his birth certificate. Trump fired back: "According to you it's not true. If you believe that, that's fine. ... A lot of people don't agree with you on that..."

    Is there anything about the POS that isn’t fake? (See “Obama’s entire life is a lie“) Fake birth certificate. Fake military draft (Selective Service) registration. A fake female as wife. Add fake family photos to the list. 1. Pic of Obama and his grandparents You’ve probably all seen that picture of Obama seated between his maternal grandparents Stanley and Madelyn Dunham, supposedly taken in Central Park sometime in the early 1980s while the Dunhams were visiting Obama when he was a student at Columbia University. The photo was among other family photos of Obama which were released by his presidential...

    The further I travel down this rabbit hole, the more I feel divorced from the good conservative people that I choose to call my own. I hold some stories back from our readers. My thought is that people have a hard enough time embracing the basic fact that our government is corrupt on both sides of the aisle. If you knew how corrupt I thought these people really were, I feel like you’d rush to the phone and soon bad men would show up to haul me off in a straight jacket. Do they still do that? Regardless, today I...
  • At Commencement, Obama Mocks Lawmakers Who Deny Climate Change

    New York Times ^ | June 14, 2014 | By Mark Ländler
    President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an inconvenient truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to judge...

    CBS ^ | December 24, 2013
    HONOLULU — He won’t use it, and he didn’t actually sign up for it himself, but President Barack Obama has enrolled for health coverage through the new insurance exchanges. Announcing his enrollment Monday, the White House called it a symbolic show of Obama’s support for the fledgling exchanges where millions of Americans must buy insurance or face a penalty. Ironically, it also served as a reminder of just how complex and sometimes daunting the process can be. Obama, like so many other Americans, couldn’t use the website. “The complicated nature of the president’s case required an in-person sign-up,” the White...

    "..........How does a serious president handle this? He steps out of the spotlight, curtails the golf games with celebrities, persuades the wife to postpone further multi-million dollar vacations, abjures any serious or epoch-making speeches or public efforts. He lets other, lesser figures carry the public load for awhile.... This strategy would very likely work for the current chief executive as well. But I ask you -- does any of that sound like Barack Obama? He can't back out of sight because of a little thing called "ObamaCare." He let the help handle that and it didn't work. Now it's attached...

    People with health insurance are unhappy with the rollout of ObamaCare, and many of them blame the law for changes in their policies, according to a new Associated Press-GfK poll. The online survey of 1,367 adults found political challenges for President Obama and congressional Democrats among the population they said would largely be unaffected by the new healthcare law – the 85 percent of people who already have health insurance. Nearly half of those who already had coverage through their employer or the private market said their policies would be changing in 2014; 69 percent said they would be paying...

    More than 30 House Republicans are requesting to meet with President Obama to “discuss real health care reform alternatives to ObamaCare.” “Since the inception of the ACA in 2009, many of us have offered countless alternative healthcare reform proposals,” the lawmakers wrote in a letter to Obama on Tuesday. “While we understand your desire to preserve your signature piece of legislation, it is a false choice to say that the [Affordable Care Act] is the only way to reform health care.” Rep. Tim Griffin (R-Ark.) spearheaded the letter, signed by 33 Republicans, and has been actively trying to change or...

    The Maryland official who directly oversaw the rollout of Maryland’s health insurance exchange resigned Friday amid continuing technical problems that have hampered the state’s online enrollment efforts. After an emergency session Friday night, the board of the Maryland Health Benefit Exchange accepted the resignation of Rebecca Pearce, its executive director, and thanked her in a statement for working “tirelessly and with tremendous dedication” for more than two years. .....the state is still wrestling with stubborn technological problems, posting weak enrollment numbers even as other states have signed up thousands of consumers for plans under President Obama’s new health-care law.

    On Thursday, with about five days left until the end of open enrollment, House staffers trickled out of the health benefits fair with packets of new insurance information and knowledge of a new roadblock. “Apparently the site is down, so I can’t register,” said a man who identified himself as a Republican staffer as he waited to catch the elevator on the third floor of the Cannon House Office Building, clutching a packet from Kaiser. DC Health Link experienced “technical difficulties with their website,” according to a mass email sent to all Senate staff at 11:32 a.m. The glitch meant...

    Young voters are turning against President Obama and his signature healthcare law, according to a new poll from Harvard University's Institute of Politics. Obama's approval rating has plunged to 41 percent with voters aged 18-29, down from 52 percent the last time Harvard polled the group. While 56 percent in the poll say they backed Obama last year, just 46 percent say they would do so again. "We're now seeing a sea change among this critical demographic," says Harvard Institute of Politics Director Trey Grayson. "The president has experienced a double-digit drop in his approval rating among millennials over the...

    The White House, for at least the fifth time this year, is seeking to pivot to the economy, this time in a bid to change the subject from the disastrous rollout of ObamaCare. It’s a common play for the White House, which frequently seeks to refocus attention on its jobs and infrastructure agenda when facing political crises. The move is so familiar that NBC White House correspondent Chuck Todd has dubbed it the “déjà pivot.” The Hill counted at least five times the White House has sought to pivot to the economy this year by reviewing news accounts. Republicans, citing...

    Obama's statement will be judged by the same standard: Did it help the country, or did he say it just to save his bacon? Obama apologized for saying people could keep their insurance if they like it. But some Americans who buy policies on the private market recently received cancellation notices because their plans don't meet Obamacare requirements for more comprehensive care. Americans may forgive Obama if Obamacare improves their lives, says Christopher J. Galdieri, who teaches a course on the U.S. presidency at Saint Anslem College in New Hampshire. Why we need a president who lies... "We want a...

    Older congressional staff say their out-of-pocket healthcare costs will rise three or four times after they enter the ObamaCare insurance exchanges. The economic shock has led Democratic chiefs of staff to call for changing the rules so that their staffers won’t take the economic hit. The chiefs of staff have expressed support for a change that would allow congressional offices to re-classify their workers as non-official staff so that they can avoid the higher costs. “Simply unaffordable,” Minh Ta, chief of staff to Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.), wrote in an email to fellow Democratic chiefs of staff on Thursday afternoon....

    Between 30 and 40 percent of the IT system for the federal health insurance marketplace must still be built, a top official at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services said Monday. Henry Chao, the agency’s deputy chief information officer, said that a large portion of the behind-the-scenes work has yet to be finished. “I think it’s just an approximation, we’re probably sitting somewhere between 60 or 70 percent [completed],” he told the House Energy and Commerce oversight subcommittee. Chao’s comments, which came during a hearing on data security of the federal website, come less than two weeks before the...
