Who is Jonathan Gruber and why this is important?

by Skip November 19, 2014

Right now at the national level, there are two things driving the Right blogosphere: Jonathan Gruber and Obama’s extra-Constitutional Amnesty granting.  Neither of which have we been commenting on – frankly, we’ve adopted the “screw DC – save NH” outlook and our posting with the elections here in NH has shown that.  But while NH […]

As Mr. Obama, Democrat leadership, and the state and national party apparatus and apparatchiks, scramble to distance themselves from any ties to the revelations by Jonathan Gruber about how Obama Care was forced down America’s throat (Americans are stupid, we need to lie to them, etc), stop and consider.

The New Hampshire Democrat Party has been lying to you for years, about so many things, which will cost you and yours dearly for years to come.  So why not propose a name change, now that we’ve met policy-dreamy, over-paid, and well-connected white-tower “expert” Jonathan Gruber? I think we should call them The New Hampshire […]

Ray Buckley, New Hampshire’s own outlet for the lies of Jonathan Gruber, has a problem.  He and his party have supported Obama’s endless stream of flip-flops and lies. They have run cover for the most scandal-ridden presidency in the modern era, perhaps ever.  They smeared opponents as Democrats doubled the national debt.  And they fought […]

So why does the Government keep trying to use the US Constitution to limit US?
