Mainstream Media FAIL: Citizen Journalist Exposes Administration's Deception over ObamaCare
Meet investment advisor Rich Weinstein, one of many Americans who got a letter informing him that his old health insurance policy did not meet ACA standards. It was replaced by a plan that cost twice as much. Obama's words echoed in his memory: "If you like your plan, you can keep your plan, period."
"So I’m watching the news, and at that time I was thinking: 'Hey, the administration was not telling people the truth, and the media was doing nothing!'"
That's when Rich Weinstein put on his thinking cap and did his own independent research. He came up with many pieces of evidence proving that the Obama Administration intentionally deceived the American people, beginning with this:
"This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” said Gruber. “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. Call it the stupidity of the America voter, or whatever.”

"The story metastasized when Penn briefly pulled the original video. Jonathan Adler, one of the attorneys in the anti-subsidy cases, was among the people tweeting about the apparent censorship until Penn restored the video. Gruber himself crawled out of view, refusing to comment when reporters asked about his newly discovered argument that the ACA was “designed to dupe a gullible American public.” Even Snopes.com waded in, attempting to debunk the conservative theory that an Ivy League school was trying to hide a damaging gaffe that could hurt the legal case for the ACA.
"Weinstein, back at home, was stunned at the reaction. Why did he keep finding Gruber gaffes? Why didn't the press glom onto this stuff first?
"'It’s terrifying that the guy in his mom’s basement is finding his stuff, and nobody else is,” he says. “I really do find this disturbing.'”
