Gruber Lawyers Up Regarding How Much Money He Made From Governments Advising on ObamaCare

Sassy.

He repeatedly refuses to simply state how much he's made off advising on Obamcare, and repeatedly says he'll discuss it with his lawyer.

Speaking of lawyering up, his statement to the committee stinks of legal polish. He now claims that he was lying when he previously said he was lying and he's very, very sowwy for his "inappropriate" remarks.

I would like to begin by apologizing sincerely for the offending comments that I made. In some cases I made uninformed and glib comments about the political process behind health care reform. I am not an expert on politics and my tone implied that I was, which is wrong. In other cases I simply made insulting and mean comments that are totally uncalled for in any situation. I sincerely apologize both for conjecturing with a tone of expertise and for doing so in such a disparaging fashion. It is never appropriate to try to make oneself seem more important or smarter by demeaning others. I know better. I knew better. I am embarrassed, and I am sorry.

In addition to apologizing for my unacceptable remarks, I would like to clarify
some misconceptions about the content and context of my comments. Let me be very clear: I do not think that the Affordable Care Act was passed in a non-transparent fashion. The issues I raised in my comments, such as redistribution of risk through insurance market reform and the structure of the Cadillac tax, were roundly debated throughout 2009 and early 2010 before the law was passed. Reasonable people can disagree about the merits of these policies, but it is completely clear that these issues were debated thoroughly during the drafting and passage of the ACA.

I also would like to clarify some misperceptions about my January 2012 remarks
concerning the availability of tax credits in states that did not set up their own health
insurance exchanges. The portion of these remarks that has received so much attention lately omits a critical component of the context in which I was speaking. The point I believe I was making was about the possibility that the federal government, for whatever reason, might not create a federal exchange. If that were to occur, and only in that context, then the only way that states could guarantee that their citizens would receive tax credits would be to set up their own exchanges. I have a long-standing and well-documented belief that health care reform legislation in general, and the ACA in particular, must include mechanisms for
residents in all states to obtain tax credits....

I behaved badly, and I will have to live with that, but my own inexcusable arrogance is not a flaw in the Affordable Care Act....

One Democrat I saw seemingly chided Gruber for not being excessively burdened by truthfulness, or words to that effect. That may be taken as the Dems "ripping" Gruber, but the Democrat I saw went on to claim that this was a moment for "redemption."

See, what they're claiming is that Gruber lied previously when he lied about lying. So they're castigating him for that alleged lie (about lying about Obamacare), but are saying he's "redeeming" himself by now saying he was lying before and is now telling the truth when he says Obamacare Is Awesome.

So don't believe these media accounts of Democrats "ripping" Gruber. They are tactically pretending to believe Gruber's new lies, in order to defend Obamacare.

I think I've read before that "not preparing" is actually a strategy. It allows you to say "I don't know" a lot.

Meanwhile, we've got a fucking waiter on the panel because he got him some Obamacare and loves it. (He also claim's he's not getting subsidies which I think, given the rest of his story, is an outright lie.)

Ever noticed how that works for the dems? They find someone who was too poor for insurance. And suddenly Obamacare is passed. And even though we know it raised prices, these people magically pay less.

And always without subsidies. Even though the income level they describe should allow them such.

Plus guys a fucking moron. If he's not getting subsidies, he needs to run his insurance costs through his "consulting" company so he can get the tax break.

I think Gruber knew the administration and other senior Democrats were lying, and was defending them.

Now, of course, I think he's lying about that.

Regarding PP-caca itself, I think the was refreshingly honest. He knew that it was going to be bad for most people, so those people had to be tricked into accepting it "for the greater good."

Shockingly, you're probably right.

I do think that that would be rather late in the day. I'd be thinking in 2007 about what we should tell the U.S. that might be awkward if Obongo got elected in 2008, and took office in 2009. The time to make that calculation was as soon as Obongo was nominated, just in case.

The nasty words I want to say about this law and this man would be too extensive to put here.

I will say this however, I just dropped to the lowest bronze coverage possible due to the f'ing outrageous cost for less coverage than before this fucking law. And it is a gamble for my family, and gamblers are generally losers, but that's what I have to do.

So the law's design to force us all in to less health care is working as designed. We will all soon enough be in the Canadian or British system designed for employment instead of healthcare.

He's very popular. This is a conservative area, although it's gradually becoming infested with liberals fleeing the beds they've crapped elsewhere.
Congressional districts are determined by a "non-partisan" committee that the Reds packed with ... undercover sympathizers. Kinda the way they swung party caucuses to Obongo in 2008.

I doubt it. No one enjoys a public reaming out like that, not even Bawney Fwank.

He doesn't give a crap. He got his millions and still thinks we're all rubes.

Sure, that's true, but it's no fun getting grilled like that. No fun whatsoever.

Ah, those "nonpartisan commissions." We talk about those in PA. Nothing is nonpartisan anymore.

Yes.

Gruber presents an interesting question with this testimony. "Was he lying then, or is he lying now?"

Gruber's overarching point about selling Obamacare is true: many if not most Americans are willfully, woefullyuninformed even when it comes to policies, programs,and legislation that directly affect their own lives, and it would be politically foolhardy not to exploit that ignorance.

It is my personal, tinfoil hat belief that our our public schoolsystems deliberately create students unable to reason or discern truth from falsehood.

Presumably the videos were shot before an audience that wanted to hear just how awesome Obamacare would be, so why would he need to lie to those attending about how it was passed? Or about how awesome the legislation would be?
Seeing how most people's insurance rates are climbing and we are beginning to see what a giant turd the legislation turned out to be, it stands to reason that he was being truthful in the videos and is lying now.

392 Couldn't the Committee use the IRS to look into Gruber's tax returns to see how much he made? Or is that only permitted against conservatives?

395 I just wish, that one time, ONE TIME, someone on the committiee (are you listening, Trey Gowdy?) would say, "Mr. Gruber, you are a lying piece of shit." Then walk down to the table, and kick his ass.

397 Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
