Here are the new entries:

885) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said Obamacare was passed due to “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter”

In October 2013, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said:

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed… Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass….Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”

886) Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber lied to the New York Times in a disclosure contract that he signed

In January 2010, the New York Times wrote:

Corrections

January 9, 2010

Editors’ note

On July 12, the Op-Ed page published an article by Jonathan Gruber, a professor of economics at M.I.T., on health insurance and taxation. On Friday, Professor Gruber confirmed reports that he is a paid consultant to the Department of Health and Human Services, and that his contract was in effect when he published his article. The article did not disclose this relationship to readers.

Like other writers for the Op-Ed page, Professor Gruber signed a contract that obligated him to tell editors of such a relationship. Had editors been aware of Professor Gruber’s government ties, the Op-Ed page would have insisted on disclosure or not published his article.

887) When M.I.T. economics professor Jonathan Gruber wrote a pro-Obamacare opinion piece for the Washington Post, he did not disclose the fact that the Obama administration had paid him $392,000 to help write Obamacare

In December 2009, when M.I.T. economics professor Jonathan Gruber wrote a pro-Obamacare opinion piece for the Washington Post, he did not disclose the fact that the Obama administration had paid him $392,000 to help write Obamacare.

888) Obama ordered Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to lie about Obamacare’s Cadillac tax

In July 2009, Obama ordered Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to lie about Obamacare’s Cadillac tax.

889) Falsely said that he had never worked with Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber at the White House

Although the Obama administration said that Obama had never worked with Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber at the White House, White House visitor logs show that Obama and Gruber were together in the same room in the White House for nearly four hours on July 20, 2009.

890) Nancy Pelosi gave Obamacare waivers to 38 restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels in her own Congressional district

Although Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi (D-California) voted for Obamacare, in April 2011, she gave Obamacare waivers to 38 restaurants, nightclubs, and hotels in her own Congressional district.

891) Falsely said, “If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

In June 2009, Obama said:

“If you actually took the number of Muslim Americans, we’d be one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.”

However, at the time Obama made his statement, there were 57 countries that had more Muslims than the U.S.

892) Illegally ignored Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Request regarding the FCC’s plan to put government bureaucrats inside TV stations and newspaper offices to monitor their activities

In November 2014, the Obama administration illegally ignored Judicial Watch’s Freedom of Information Request regarding the FCC’s plan to put government bureaucrats inside TV stations and newspaper offices to monitor their activities.

893) Announced plans to illegally send 1,500 U.S. troops to Iraq in November 2014, even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December 2011

In November 2014, Obama announced plans to send 1,500 U.S. troops to Iraq, even though the Iraq War had allegedly ended in December 2011.

U.S. Senator Chris Murphy (D-Connecticut) said of this:

“I do not think president has the ability under current authority to authorize 1,500 troops without Congress acting.”

894) Falsely said he would not send U.S. troops to Iraq

In June 2014, Obama said he would not send U.S. troops to Iraq. However, in November 2014, he announced plans to send 1,500 U.S. troops to Iraq.

    If only Ohbongo was not a mulatto who strongly identifies with the Negro race! Given these facts, AND THEY ARE FACTS, no Congress in their right mind would ignore the impeachable situation the nation is now facing. But because of his race, and because almost all member of Congress have no greater fear than being labeled a “Racist,” this POS is going to get away with this entire fiasco. I continue to believe Ohbongo could murder all the Republican Members of Congress, Rape all the wives and girlfriends of all the Democrat Members of Congress on the Capitol Steps, and the issue of Impeachment would still never be considered, because he is a Negro!

      What impeachable situation? You can’t even define it. Typical right wingnut hysteria soaked in racism.

      Race has nothing to do with it. Mia Love would make an excellent President.

      • EDell replied:

        Mia Love, an excellent president. With nothing to back up that hyperbole, I see. Just a lot of wishful thinking. I wonder why she changed her name from the nerdy Ludmya Bourdeau to the porn star Mia Love. What’s she trying to hide? Also, according to Love, her birth occurred just before an immigration law would expire in 1976. Hmmm, I wonder if she really is legal or not. What’s with all these blacks and their legal (?) claims of citizenship, anyway? Where’s her birth certificate?

        Her background to becoming president? Well, she served as the community spokesperson in an effort to get the developer of her neighborhood in Saratoga Springs to spray against flies. I kid you not. And people criticized Obama for being a community organizer.

        What about her political background? Mayor of a small town for 4 years. Obama, 8 years as a state Senator before becoming a US Senator for 4 years. Hmmm, experience-wise in politics, O beats Love by 3 to 1 – she’s still got a lot of learning to do.

        To be fair, I don’t know much else about Love and how good or bad of a mayor she may’ve been, but what works for a small town in the middle of nowhere doesn’t necessarily translate on a national scale. I think Palin proved that.

        “porn star Mia Love.”

        Mia Love never posed for pornography. It was Obama’s mother who did that.

    Nothing wrong with porn, so long as the parties are willing. You expect people to be saints? Even saints were never saints.

    • danfromsquirrelhill replied:

      Of course there’s nothing wrong with consenting adults doing porn. It was you who first mentioned porn, not me.
