You and I have just witnessed one of the most corrupt legislative sessions in American history. Now we have learned that one of the key “experts” pushing ObamaCare was also bought and paid for!
The New York Times has exposed Jonathan Gruber, a professor of economics at M.I.T., as having published an article on their Op-Ed page supporting ObamaCare without disclosing that he had an ongoing consulting relationship with HHS.
The Times noted that Professor Gruber had signed a contract obligating him to reveal such relationships. It would have been impossible for him to “forget” his consultancy – he had nearly $400,000 worth of lucrative contracts with HHS at the time!
Firedoglake revealed last Friday that the Obama Administration has paid Gruber more than $780,000 in TAX DOLLARS to make the public case for health care reform!
Jonathan Gruber’s work has been extensively cited by the White House, Members of Congress, and the media continuously since ObamaCare came onto the scene, but NOT ONCE did anyone in the administration disclose he was on their payroll!
The Jonathan Gruber revelation is just the latest public exposure of the graft and dishonesty which has characterized the way the Obama/Pelosi/Reid power axis has advanced ObamaCare. Given what we know, can you imagine what else is under the table?
Just before Christmas, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid systematically bought off every Democrat member of the Senate who could possibly derail his crucial cloture vote. When all the “bribes” were handed out, Reid had the required 60 votes to choke off debate in the middle of the night.
The congressional leadership and the Obama White House arm twisters have literally drug our nation down to the level of a cheap banana republic! They know their popular support is plummeting. They have become desperate and will stop at nothing.
Honest Americans have been nauseated as we have learned:
** Senator Mary Landrieu (D-LA) received $300 million in extra federal spending for her state in what critics derisively called “The Louisiana Purchase.”
** Senator Ben Nelson (D-NE) accepted a deal exempting his state from new Medicaid costs and several other long-term perks. Nelson’s purchase has been dubbed the “Cornhusker Kick Back.”
** Many other bribes and “special provisions” affected the states of Vermont, North and South Dakota, Wyoming, Massachusetts, Hawaii, Michigan, Florida, and Connecticut.
But perhaps most painful of all, we have watched a smug Harry Reid justifying his corrupt acts by suggesting it is every senator’s DUTY to get pay-offs for their votes!
“If they don’t have something in it important to them, then it doesn’t speak well of them,” Reid said in a post-cloture interview. So much for the integrity of the United States Senate!
If you wondered why Harry Reid rushed his 2,074-page bill and its 383-page “Manager’s Amendment” through in the middle of the night with just hours to read them, then here’s at least one answer…
On page 1,020, the tyrannical Senate majority insists that no future Congress can repeal or otherwise amend the section on “Independent Medical Advisory Boards.”
You will probably remember that socialists mocked Governor Sarah Palin for calling such independent boards “death panels.” Yet Governor Palin was correct in her assessment – what else would you call boards with the power to grant or deny life-saving care using some pseudo-scientific “cost-benefit” formula?
Carefully hidden away in Reid’s version of ObamaCare is a section that gives these boards far more power and permanence than the Constitution allows to ANY government entity!
Congress has NO authority to force every American to carry insurance coverage,
Congress has NO authority to fine employers whose policies do not have the mandated coverage.
MUST continue to make Congress hear our voice!
Let’s BURY Congress in protest over this endless procession of dirty tricks.
ObamaCare is more vulnerable than ever due to the recent sordid revelations of bribery and scandal.
Americans nationwide are expressing OUTRAGE at this overt manipulation and total lack of integrity. Reid, Pelosi and Obama have proven they will do anything to get this government takeover of our medical industry.
The socialists need to understand that WE HAVE NOT GIVEN UP!
If Reid loses one vote in the Senate or Pelosi three or four in the House, then ObamaCare will not pass!
