Mark Caserta: Was Obamacare an intentional deception?

20 Nov

It seems that everything about this administration is built around a planned deception of the American people.

What can we now believe?

Evidence is rapidly developing that suggests the lies about Obamacare which helped pass the law and get President Obama elected were premeditated.

Economist Jonathan Gruber, one of the Obama administration’s consultants on the Affordable Care Act (ACA), is under attack for comments he made last year in which he said the “stupidity of the American voter” was a key factor in passing Obamacare in 2010.

Gruber’s impartation regarding the president’s signature health care law emerged in a video taken at the Annual Health Economics Conference last year.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” he said during a panel discussion at the University of Pennsylvania in October 2013. “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the ‘stupidity of the American voter’ or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.”

Gruber said he regretted making the comments last Tuesday during an on-air interview with MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow. But even as Gruber apologized, subsequent videos began to surface adding veracity to Gruber’s remarks acknowledging the administration’s “lack of transparency” in the legislative process.

“You can’t do it politically. You just literally cannot do it, okay, transparent financing and also transparent spending.” Gruber said. “In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, okay.”

In a very telling fourth video Gruber not only insults the American people but portrays President Obama as being complicit in misleading Americans.

“Barack Obama’s not a stupid man, okay?” Gruber said in a college talk at Holy Cross in March 2010. “He knew when he was running for president that quite frankly the American public doesn’t actually care that much about the uninsured. What the American public cares about is costs.”

And indeed, the president kept Americans focused on the “affordability” of his health care debacle.

As a candidate in 2008, Barack Obama repeatedly said his healthcare plan would reduce the typical family’s annual premiums by up to $2,500 per year. Often, he didn’t include the disclaimer “up to,” simply saying the “typical” family would save about $2,500 a year on premiums. Yet, this promise, as so many others, did not come to fruition for Americans.

And last Friday, just hours before the health insurance marketplace was to open to buyers seeking insurance for 2015, the Obama administration unveiled data showing that many Americans with health insurance plans purchased under the ACA could face up to 20 percent increases in their premiums unless they switch plans!

I believe these were calculated deceptions which changed the course of American history. Obamacare and very likely the election of Barack Obama would never have happened if the American people had known the truth.

As a result, Democrat leadership and this president have stained American history, forged a legacy of deceit, and lost all credibility with the American people.

Mark Caserta: Governing outside the people’s will is tyranny

13 Nov

It’s as though the election never happened…


Nov. 13, 2014 @ 12:24 AM

Voters who care about our country used last Tuesday’s midterm elections to send a clear message to our elected representatives: Do your job or we’ll replace you.

But sadly, while President Obama made it clear to Americans that “every single one” of his policies were on the ballot, he refuses to acknowledge the people’s mandate and veer from his ultra-liberal course.

Apparently, only Barack Hussein Obama can issue mandates.


Just days following the Republican “wave” election which resulted in the shellacking of Democrats not only in Congress, but in state and local elections as well, leaders from both parties met at the White House to discuss the next two years. But optimism was scarce, beginning with the issue of immigration.

“Unfortunately the president’s promise to unilaterally go around Congress ignores the message voters sent on Election Day,” Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, said after the meeting. “It is my sincere hope that he will reverse course and work with us not around us to secure the border and achieve real reforms to our immigration system.”

This display of executive arrogance speaks volumes about Obama’s commitment to the American people. During his presidency, he’s been willing to say just about anything to propagate his progressive ideology, so it isn’t surprising he’s unwilling to hearken to the people’s voice.

The real question now is does the GOP have the wherewithal to return our government to some semblance of order. Republicans failed to heed a similar message sent by voters in the 2010 midterms, so allow me to lend clarity to the message sent last Tuesday.

Unlike liberals, whose progressive ideology rests on a sliding scale of interpretation, conservatives will not budge on the fundamental rule of law. While we expect bipartisan negotiation on the course to achieving prosperity and protection for our nation, we demand it to be navigated via the provisions of the Constitution.

Social policy aside, the GOP must stand firm on sealing our borders from individuals who would harm our nation; balancing the federal budget and reducing the debt; including fossil fuels in an “all of the above” energy strategy; and repairing the elements of Obamacare hurting our nation’s economy and jobs.


The Separation of Powers devised by the framers of the Constitution was intended to prevent any branch of government from having too much power. Barack Obama intends to bypass our system of checks and balances on issues affecting the health and welfare of Americans. Governing outside the will of the people is nothing short of tyrannical rule.

The dynamics in Washington may have changed, but the principles of our Republic have not.

The GOP-controlled Senate and House of Representatives must once again begin the wheels of democracy turning.

And should we win the struggle, Nov. 4 will no longer be known only as “election day” but as the day the nation declared in one voice: “We will not go quietly into the night!” Democracy will live on! Our Republic will survive! We will forever celebrate it as our Independence Day!

(The final declaration, of course, is an adapted version of President Thomas Whitmore’s Speech from the movie “Independence Day”.)
