How ObamaCare Passed Thanks to “Stupid” Americans

Jonathan Gruber is a man of great distinction. He teaches economics at MIT. He has a Ph.D. He was one of the key architects of the Affordable Care Act. He’s also a liar (or something very close to it) and an arrogant liberal twit who intentionally misled Americans, whom he believes are stupid, in order…

When Republicans Win, Politics Are ‘Dysfunctional’

Since the Bolsheviks inaugurated the first edition of their party newspaper Pravda (the Russian word for truth), the left has shaped truth to serve its goals. On an individual level, there are plenty of progressives who are honest and plenty of conservatives who aren’t. But truth is just not a left-wing value — feminism, environmentalism,…

Obamacare Architect: Stupid Americans Let Us Pass the Law

Gruber-Daly

Soon after President Obama was elected to a second term in office in 2012, I wrote a column for this website entitled, “How Can Obama Respect an Electorate That Would Re-Elect Him?” The piece presented the argument that the majority of the country, at the time, chose not to factor the president’s job performance (during…
