    ...So here’s a suggestion. Fox News has revenues approaching $2 billion and a newsgathering investment of nearly $900 million per year — why not plow some of those funds into an investigation into the transparency of the passage of the Affordable Care Act? If what Gruber says is on target, after all, then there must be a heck of a lot more scandal to uncover.

    Good luck with that.

    Government is pretty much untouchable now. No one of any great importance gets held accountable anymore. Sure some lessers do and some others will fall on their sword for the team but mostly it's just what's called a "limited hang out" to make the people think something is being done until the next big story comes along to over write it and the people forget about it.

    I wouldn't look for any real investigation into this.

    I believe poncho is right.

    It is possible that Obama could push the "stupid" American people over the line with another outstanding blunder like issuing an executive order granting amnesty to myriads of aliens hoping to capture their vote but thereby (IMO) destroying the credibility of the Democratic Party.

    The problem with telling a lie so many times that people believe it (if indeed they do - "if you want to keep your doctor...") is that the liars themselves begin to believe it.

    In addition and generally speaking these illegal aliens in mention have a stronger conservative set of values (apart from being survivor mode "undocumented aliens") and work ethic than their "liberators" and will turncoat on them in the voting booth.

    Those who I know have the mindset of JFK who though himself a "liberal", made his famous "ask not what America can do for you, but what you can do for America" statement and then lowered the general income tax for most of the America people.

    It seems that videos of Gruber repeating the same remark that the American people are stupid are all over the internet. I think that Gruber must have meant that we were stupid to elect the Democrats.

    Pelosi lied and said that she had never heard of Gruber when he had worked with her closely.

    Obama lied and said that he had never heard of Gruber when Gruber had been to the White House to see Obama a couple dozen times according to White House records.

    Even Gruber was caught in some lies when an ordinary citizen challenged the M.I.T. "genius" on the economic effect of the law and Gruber lied to the ordinary citizen by saying that an M.I.T. "genius" knows best.

    Not only is Obama a proven liar but it turns out that Pelosi is a proven liar and Gruber is a proven liar.
