Jonathan Gruber, an architect of Obamacare, admitted that writing the bill in a “tortuous manner” kept Congress, the CBO, and the American People from seeing its true nature. Like a giggling teenager, he gushed over the political expediency of non-transparency.
Now, Obama wants to “save” the internet by adding more government control: “Obamacare for the internet.”
Any proposed legislation that comes out of the Obama White House will be publicly touted as good for the masses, safer, and cheaper, but the bills will be written in a “tortuous manner” to keep as many people in the dark as possible.
The entire Obama existence is a consistent theme: no-fault mendacity. He wrote books that were loose with the truth. Acquaintances were fabricated. Real characters were obfuscated. Yes, he did inhale… a lot! But that was cool and made him look hip to the younger generation.
Obama’s college years are in a haze for a different reason. Records are sealed and jealously guarded, because non-transparency is politically expedient.
He came from obscurity to crush others on his way to a Senatorial seat in Illinois. He then devoured the presumptive heir to the Democrat throne in 2008, leaving Hillary to ask, “Did anyone get the number of that truck?!” The press is complicit, but who choreographed this?
Despite lack of theatrical experience, Obama became what many people wanted: a calm, eloquent, non-partisan, post-racial, intelligent, transparent, middle-of-the road, diplomatic candidate. “Tell them anything to get elected. Then, do what you want.”
As president, he has brutally pursued his socialist agenda by hiding the truth, lying to get support, and welching on political deals like a true socialist thug.
Candidates who cannot be vetted properly are too dangerous for the country and cannot hold office. Lesson learned?
