If you watched T.V., read the newspapers, or listened to the radio (with the exception of Fox News and conservative talk shows), you’d think that Jonathan Gruber was an invisible man. He’s the former ObamaCare consultant (who was paid almost $400,00 and who visited the Oval Office at least 10 times regarding ObamaCare), who said that the Obama Administration purposely mislead (a/k/a lied) about the provisions that were included in ObamaCare in order to get it passed because they felt that the voters were too stupid to understand what a great piece of legislation ObamaCare was.
They knew what was the best for us (how elitist and condescending is that). Ordinarily, especially if Republicans were in power, this would be a really big story that any honest journalist would latch onto because it exposed politicians “sticking it” to the citizens. But no, hardly any mention was made by NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, MSNBC, the N.Y. Times, the Wash. Post and other Democrat leaning media outlets in the week or two after videos surfaced that showed Jonathan Gruber pointing out the deception the Obama Administration used to sell it’s abomination called ObamaCare.
When Obama was elected, he said that his administration would be the most “transparent” administration ever (this coming from a product of the Daley political machine in Chicago, notorious for being totally non-transparent). Well, if you look at the last six years of the Obama Administration, you’d have to conclude they haven’t even come close to achieving that designation of transparency. Starting with Fast & Furious, Benghazi, the I.R.S. harassing conservative groups, the NSA snooping on American citizens and journalists, and the big “kahuna”, ObamaCare, it has been lie after lie, coverup after coverup as their modus operandi. Never have we seen such hubris and arrogance by elected and appointed government officials. These corrupt politicians and government officials think that the citizens are all stupid (at least Jonathan Gruber thought so), even in the age of technological advances whereby within minutes, hours and days we could see first hand actual officials lying through their teeth. And they still have the nerve to deny it.
This obfuscation (lying) goes all the way up to the White House. For example, in regards to the ACA (which really should be entitled the (Un)Affordable Care Act), Obama said that you could keep your doctor (untrue), that you could keep your health care plan (untrue), that the average family would save $2,500 per year (untrue), and stated that 30 million people would be covered by ObamaCare (untrue). These lies were about just one of Obama’s screwups, but the others were just as egregious.
Even with all these revelations, the Obama Zombies will not admit that our “Liar in Chief” is in way over his head, and that they claim the reason his opponents are bad mouthing him (Obama) is because he is black – in other words, they are all racists. Maybe they should look in the mirror to see who the real racists are?
The American electorate saw through these deceptions and gave the Republicans a resounding electoral victory all across the country this past November, by unseating 9 Democrat Senators, more than 10 Congressmen, and a few state governors (the Republicans now have 31 governors out of 50) and they now control 70% of the state legislatures. But that shellacking didn’t phase Obama and his flunkies - they are acting like this past election never really happened, and that it was a repudiation of Obama’s policies (which it truly was).
So, when the mainstream media totally ignores Jonathan Gruber and what he has said and what he stands for, they prove that they are still in the tank for their fair-haired boy, Obama and his policies. They (the media) should be ashamed of themselves by abdicating their journalistic duties in rooting out corruption and deceit in government, but, then again, it looks like they have no shame to lose. It is the American people who are the big losers.
