#Gruber parody video – FUNNY! ‘Our ideas are so good we can’t tell the truth’

An IPAB of Grubers? Hmm…

See how many lies #Gruber packed into one cartoon. Keep your plan – ha! Romneycare a success (feds paid)

#Gruber apologizes; Vermont cuts ties; Michigan investigates for fraud; GOP demands return of money

Dems sold #ACA as keeping worker ins, but Gruber said losing plans was ‘people falling off a building’ by design

You can try to disown Gruber and deny your own history, BUT THE RECORD IS CRYSTAL CLEAR AND PLAIN FOR ALL TO SEE

“All of #GruberGate in Two Minutes” TOO FUNNY!

#Obamacare opponents locate, post deleted Gruber video. GO TEAM!

Gruber supplied data regarding #Obamacare for illegal aliens

Gruber wrote in 2011 comic book ‘you can keep your plan’

Your lying President ‘stole ideas’ from Gruber in 2006. #credibilitygap

Your lying President crafted Cadillac tax deception with Gruber in the Oval Office; Gruber a frequent visitor

#Obamacare lies made #Gruber a millionaire, a top one-percenter (‘it’s OK when WE do it, because we’re good people’)

#Gruber revelation: Cadillac tax will eventually hit the middle class by design

“Another tape surfaces of ObamaCare architect calling American people ‘stupid’” #Gruber

BREAKING: Univ. of Rhode Island DELETES Key Gruber Video

Most-Transparent-Administration-Ever’s Minions Complicit in Stunning Coverup

OCTS original reporting

The day after President Obama attempted to distance himself from Obamacare mastermind Prof. Jonathon Gruber (MIT Health Care Economist), the University of Rhode Island deleted a key video in the scandal from its YouTube account.

The original video made news with its audio of the Professor describing the intentional concealment and misrepresentation of the ACA’s stealth 40% tax on employee health benefits, a massive tax on ordinary workers that phases in slowly starting in 2018:

It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.” –Prof. Jonathon Gruber

The professor further detailed the motivation and systematic development of now-controversial deceptions made to the public on certain aspects of the law.

Obamacare Architect Admits They LIED and DECEIVED to Pass Obamacare

Comment: The University of Pennsylvania, which posted the original video on its website, has removed it.  Make no mistake: Gruber’s position is THE END JUSTIFIES THE MEANS, putting him in very bad company, indeed.

TRANSCRIPT (OCTS)

“It’s just… you can’t do it. Politically. You just literally cannot do it. Okay?

“Transparent financing? Unless I had transparent financing… also [garbled] transparent spending. I mean, the… this bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies, okay? So, it was written to do that.

“In terms of… in terms of risk-rated(?) subsidies, if you had a law which said that ‘healthy people are gonna pay in’…   it made explicit that healthy people were going to pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed. Okay?

“Just like the cow… people… transparenc… 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 get the thing to pass.

“And you know it’s the ‘second best’ argument. You know I wish Mark was right–we could make it all transparent–but I’d rather have this law than not. So it’s kind of like his reporter story. You know yeah there’s [sic] things that I wish I could change, but I would rather have this law than not.” –Prof. Jonathan Gruber, Oct. 17, 2013 (emphasis added).

A new chapter begins:

Repeal Majority: “100% of Newly Elected GOP Senators Campaigned on Repealing #Obamacare”

#Obamacare menu for GOP Congress: repeal individual/employer/contraceptive mandates, IPAB, taxes

GOP Senate budget reconciliation can target individual mandate, insurer bailouts, med device tax, set table for 2017

States said to be key to Medicaid expansion all went to GOP governors – Fla, Ga, Ks, Maine, Wis.

Arkansas Private Option Medicaid expansion on the chopping block after every Dem defeated

WellPoint loses 300,000 #Obamacare small business enrollees (predictions coming true)

Enrollees with hi-deductible non-insurance they can’t use turn to community health centers for refuge

EHR usability will get worse; difficulty finding data puts patients at risk (we paid $20 billion for THIS?)

IG undertaking 5-10 new #ACA audits, including accuracy of subsidies, fraudulent sign-ups

More than half who enrolled in #Obamacare last year don’t plan to sign up 2015; hi prices cited

Three More Pinocchios: Health Care O-flation

Comment: Adding to Obamacare’s already prodigious Pinocchio trophy case, the Washington Post’s fact-checker awards Obamacare three more gold, silver, and bronze Pinocchios.

But here’s how the actuaries actually worded their assessment:

“Health spending growth for 2013 is projected to have remained slow at 3.6 percent due to the modest economic recovery, the impacts of sequestration and continued slow growth in the utilization of Medicare services, and continued increases in cost-sharing requirements for the privately insured.” 

[...] “The president earns Three Pinocchios.”

Don’t Like Obamacarp? There’s A Real Alternative You Can Buy Today

Comment: Are you healthy, want insurance, but don’t want to support Obamacare?  Short-term policies might be just the ticket you’re looking for.

A fast-growing, short-term alternative to ObamaCare that allows customers to get cheap, one-year policies could put the government-subsidized plan into a death spiral.”

“The plans, the only ones allowed for sale outside of ObamaCare exchanges, generally cost less than half of what similar ObamaCare policies cost, and are increasing in popularity as uninsured Americans learn they are required to get health coverage. The catch — that the policies only last for a year — is not much of a deterrent, given that customers can always sign up for ObamaCare if their short-term coverage is not renewed.”

[...] “Other providers said they also see rapid growth in the plans, which have a typical monthly premium of just over $100, compared to traditional plans that cost an average of $271.”

““It’s because the product is typically half the cost of ACA plans, and you can chose any doctor or hospital,” Health Insurance Innovations CEO Mike Kosloske told FoxNews.com.”

[...] ““Basically, people making $37,000 or less should go on ObamaCare. People with serious pre-existing conditions — they should go on ObamaCare. But for everyone else, including the penalties and including the subsidies [for ObamaCare plans], we cost 30-50 percent less and have that freedom of choice with providers.””

[...]  ““They’re particularly popular with young adults,” she said. “Forty-six percent of our short term policy holders are between the ages of 25 and 34.””

“One conservative youth advocacy group, Generation Opportunity, specifically endorses buying short-term plans as a way to get around ObamaCare.”

Rate Shock? Try Rate EXPLOSION

Obamacare’s “benefits” raising insurance plan costs

Comment: all this extra stuff isn’t free, folks.  Even if you get the government welfare subsidies, someone pays that.  Even with no subsidy, if your premium went down, it’s because lots more people are now paying higher premiums to cover your policy.

The Affordable Care Act was supposed to make health care more affordable, but a study of insurance policies before and after Obamacare shows that average premiums have skyrocketed, for some groups by as much as 78 percent.”

“Average insurance premiums in the sought-after 23-year-old demographic rose most dramatically, with men in that age group seeing an average 78.2 percent price increase before factoring in government subsidies, and women having their premiums rise 44.9 percent, according to a report by HealthPocket scheduled for release Wednesday.
