Stupid Americans and the ACA

Ballot creation date: 11/11/2014


Fact: MIT Professor and an acknowledged architect/writer of the OBAMACARE law, Jonathan Gruber, referred to the stupidity of Americans as a factor in the wording of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) so that they would not understand what it would really cost them. Fact: Former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, said this week that she had never heard of Mr. Gruber. Fact: In 2009 Representative Pelosi mentioned Doctor Gruber in a video-recorded speech. Fact: Representative Pelosi, prior to the passing of the ACA, is well known for saying, “We will know what’s in it [the ACA] after it has passed.” Fact: The President denied last week knowing Mr. Gruber. Fact: The President mentioned Mr. Gruber, with academic and professional accolades, in a previous speech. Fact: As a method of maintaining one’s integrity in the public trust, dueling was outlawed in the days of George Washington. Other Facts: When a person of responsibility in the public trust was accused of lying, the practice of dueling was a method to let God and fate determine the truth through the death of the lie maker by outcome of the contest. This sort of heavenly justice was replaced in the US during the days of George Washington by Libel and Slander laws where lie makers and justice were determined by a court system. Libel and slander laws were initially replaced during the early 20th Century in Soviet Russia by ‘political correctness’ where the lie’s existence, and punishments therefrom, were determined by the dictator. By bypassing the Soviet Union’s court system and with selective short 'show trials', punishment was delegated with more timeliness through immediate death or imprisonment of even untimely ‘politically incorrect smirks’, either in jails or quasi-permanent removal to environmentally dangerous and remote regions of hardship, like Siberia. ‘Political Correctness’ was implemented into the progressive political parties of the US with lesser punishments during the Wilson administration, and adopted later by the NAZI propaganda minister with similar Soviet type punishments during the 1930s. Today, Political Correctness has been accepted in the US as a normal political methodology for limiting transparency and accountability with the reduced punishments of unchecked character defamation, reputation degradation, and the death of careers.

Analysis and Conclusion relative to theft:

After the President publicly lied 28 times without apology on the provisions of the Affordable Care Act, lying is becoming an acceptable part of the political process. “Stupid Americans” is a term that describes voting Americans who are denied information that would, if provided, make them “Smart Americans”. This MOT Ballot weighs the theft of information by those in Media power and control over information who had the public trust to provide truthful information relative to the Affordable Care Act law prior to enactment
