Gruber's Masterful Obamacare Deceit

A mere two weeks after the political upheaval that gave the GOP huge victories in the House and Senate, and Governorships and State Legislatures throughout America, another bombshell hit which will further diminish Obama and the Democrats in the eyes of the public. MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber unwittingly became the embodiment of the duplicity and deceit that President Obama has perpetrated on America. 
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes...If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies, ok? … lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically, that was really, really critical to getting this thing to pass.”
So who uncovered this monumental deceit? Was it the mighty 60 minutes? The Nightly New with Brian Williams? ABC News? 

Actually, it was the work of a citizen reporter, Rich Weinstein, who clearly has more journalistic inquisitiveness and investigative skills in his spare time than the combined capacities of the pedigreed and well paid armies of the so called main stream media. 

As it turns out, Gruber is a just paid hack for Obama, albeit a big one—he earned over $2 million preaching the gospel of healthcare social justice. There will always be paid hacks to help demagogues. 

The real villain here is not Gruber; it’s America’s old, Pravda-like media—ABC, CBS, NBC, NY Times et al. who not only bought Gruber’s pack of lies, hook line and sinker, but now refuses to cover the story. 

One suspects that when Gruber called the American Voters “stupid”, he also had in mind the obedient, lap dog media, without whose acquiescence and complicity in the ruse, Obamacare could never have been pulled off.
