From the far left “Fire Dog Lake” PAC:
For almost the entirety of the health care debate, the Obama Administration has relied on economist Jonathan Gruber to make the public case for its idea of reform – even the most unpopular parts. But as Firedoglake revealed on Friday, the Obama Administration has failed to disclose that it paid the same economist more than $780,000.
Jonathan Gruber’s work has been cited by the White House, Members of Congress, and countless media outlets, but not once did the Obama Administration disclose it was paying him more than $780,000 in tax dollars. This is a huge ethical violation that undermines the entirety of health care reform.
Sign our petition to President Obama: come clean on Jonathan Gruber and anyone else receiving public money to push health care reform.
Take action, my friends. Any enemy of the corrupt is our friend. When it comes to calling out the frauds, we must band together, regardless of ideology. It’s clear that Obama is a tyrant, even to the “progressives” who invested so much faith in him.
Here is what I wrote:
I am actually a libertarian, and disagree with what the majority of Fire Dog Lake espouses. However, when people of good conscience see corruption, regardless of their ideology, they need to come together and put a stop to it. You, President Obama, are clearly corrupt. Frankly, I feel bad for the people who call themselves progressives and put faith in you. You and all of the Democrats are a joke. True liberals and progressives should be just as mad at you as true libertarians and conservatives are at the Republicans. All the members of the DC political class don’t have the interests of the people in mind. It’s a huge joke when Democrats claim to be against insurance companies and big pharma. Give me a break – you are playing right into their hands.
