More on Jonathan Gruber vs Rich Weinstein

The citizen journalist who has been finding video clips of MIT professor and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber isn't a professional: He just plays one in real life.

Here is what he has been up to while the professionals settle for thrills running up their legs.
Yet at a January 2012 symposium, Gruber seemed to be making the conservatives' argument. “What’s important to remember politically about this is if you're a state and you don’t set up an exchange, that means your citizens don't get their tax credits—but your citizens still pay the taxes that support this bill,” said Gruber. “So you’re essentially saying [to] your citizens you’re going to pay all the taxes to help all the other states in the country.”

The investment advisor e-mailed this around. Nobody cared.
One of the designers said on camera that people who do not go through state exchanges don't get subsidies.

Fancy that.

Not that several of the US Supreme Court members will care: they are Obama's boys and girls.

"the stupidity of the American voter...was really, really critical for the thing to pass."

Thus spake Jonathan Gruber, an architect of ObamaCare.

We had to deceive the public in order to get the law enacted.

I note on Drudge today that Obama is "urging" the FCC to simply "assert" control over the Internet, no consultation with Congress, much less legislation, required. The Border Patrol appears to be disarming their agents in the guise of maikng their weapons safer, but forgetting to return them.

So tell me again: Exactly why is Obama not continuing the long standing Presidential drift toward dictatorship?

And just why shouldn't the Congress impeach him for it?

Even if they don't get a conviction, they should be making the case he is, by subverting the Constitution, committing treason. Worse case scenario is he will be tied up for the rest of his term.

Unless, of course, he sends the Secret Service to arrest his opponents. Then the Dems would have no recourse save voting for impeachment.

UPDATE: More here. We are children, who must be lied to by our Mommies and Daddies for our own good. They know what is best for us, incompetent descendants of free Americans, and we must not pretend to be able to make our own decisions, accept the consequences good and bad, and rule our own lives. We are children to be taken care of, forever.

Are we at war with Oceania today? Ah, 'tis not for us to ask, but ours to be told.
