Gruber and the Individual and Employer Mandates
One average American citizen, Rich Weinstein, made a startling discovery. True investigative reporting is dead among the mainstream media. So, without a college journalism degree, he did it himself. He quickly found Jonathan Gruber, the architect of Obamacare. In Jonathan Gruber, he discovered how the Obama Administration deceived the American public.
Since then, the conservative media is uncovering more and more evidence by the trainload. The "mainstream" media continues to ignore Grubergate. "Not since the Kermit Gosnell late term abortion murder trial has the mainstream press labored so diligently to ignore a hot story." (Have you cancelled your newspaper subscription yet?)
In this article published by Daily Caller by Patrick Howley, we learn that during the 2008 presidential campaign, Obama criticized Hillary Clinton's "mandate." He ran an ad that stated: ”Hillary Clinton’s attacking, but what’s she not telling you about her health care plan? It forces everyone to buy insurance, even if you can’t afford it, and you pay a penalty if you don’t.”
In his usual bait and switch style, Obama was later "convinced" by Gruber to do exactly that.
"After Obama won the presidential election in November 2008, he added Gruber to his transition team. The New York Times later reported that Gruber became “Mr. Mandate” on the Obama health care reform team. Obama finally announced his support for the mandate in July 2009, the very same month that he met personally with Gruber in the Oval Office. Obama’s decision was made during a series of Obamacare-designing White House meetings, of which Gruber was present at five."
