New emails obtained by the Wall Street Journal confirm just how involved liberal MIT economist Jonathan Gruber was in crafting the Obamacare law. In case you’ve forgotten, Gruber is the policy wonk who was caught saying Obama’s health care reform bill became law thanks in equal parts to both lack of transparency and the “stupidity of the American voter.”
Yeah, safe to say America didn’t think THAT was funny...

Obamacare is causing insurance rates to skyrocket, coverage reductions, and massive job loss. Congress is noticing, but instead of repealing Obamacare, Congress decided to exclude themselves from the horrible law by illegally joining the Washington, D.C. Small Business healthc...
Tea Party Patriots Co-Founder Jenny Beth Martin has new op-ed up at The Daily Caller about the best way to repeal Obamacare now – before it can do any more damage. As Martin notes, it’s been five long years since Obamacare became law and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi quipped that “We have to pass [Obamacare] to find out what’s in it.”
Well, we’re finding out – and the country wants none of it. Writes Martin:
Millions of Americans have lost their insurance because of Obamacare, and tens of millions have seen their premiums rise – perverse consequences of a ...
Remember last week when a federal judge started the countdown clock on the deadline for the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to put up or shut up on Lois Lerner’s missing emails ? Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia made it very clear: either release Lerner’s lost-and-found emails by Friday (June 12) or have a good explanation ready.
On Monday, the IRS had its excuse ready. And it’s a doozy.

The Internal Revenue Service may have found 6,400 emails from Lois Lerner, who oversaw the tax agency...

I understand that you’ve been involved in the GOP civil war for some time.
Only 50 years or so. I came in late.
How did you first become involved?
I headed Youth for Goldwater in New York. Wasn’t Goldwater’s principal opponent for the Republican nomination, Nelson Rockefeller, governor of New York at the time? I had grown up in New York and at some point began to fear that Rockefeller would be governor for life. Mine, as well as his.
There are many things to dislike about Obamacare. The list - such as skyrocketing insurance premiums, IRS penalties, and the job-destroying on small businesses - is bad enough. But outrageously, Congress has taken the additional step of exempting themselves and their staff from Obamacare.
Congress knew how bad a health care law written by insurance lobbyists would be, and they decided to not abide by that same law they force us to live under.
President Obama hoped we wouldn’t notice how he illegally authorized the Office of Budget and management (OPM) to treat ...
