Gruber, then & now I

A short six years ago or so, some guy named Jonathan Gruber was the hub around which all of the decisions regarding the greatest travesty ever created — ObamaCare (well, equally as bad as global warming) — were made.

The record allegedly shows he made at least 12 visits in a certain period of time to the Oval Office to visit the president. During the structuring of this diabolical bit of legislation, Gruber was being hailed as its mastermind by all of the liberal partisans who were desperate to have this law in place.

So why does the president now deny him as a non-entity with a chagrined smirk and Nancy Pelosi (everyone’s favorite honest aunt) just wave him off with a wispy back-of-the-hand gesture? I’m sure I just heard a cock crow in the distance!

Here is vivid evidence of just how far — wide and deep — these liberals can go with their distortions of truth, without a trace of a care about what their actions mean and have meant for the “stupid” American people.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
