    Smartening up

    I would like to make a comment about Jonathan Gruber, who helped make up the fraudulent health insurance called the Unaffordable Health Care Act. It is a tremendous taxing body backed up by the Internal Revenue Service. If it wasn’t a tax, why have the IRS involved? If I don’t pay ...

    End the election board

    If I am to believe the midterm election results reported for East St. Louis, Democrat Pat Quinn garnered 95 percent of the gubernatorial votes from that community. Many other candidates received comparable results.

    Maybe we didn’t think through Obamacare

    A short clip on TV mentioned Jonathan. Gruber, who was one of the architects for Obamacare. In this clip it appeared that he said American voters were too dumb to think for themselves, or something to that affect.

As a matter of fact, the last time he was on TV after he won, he talked about going ahead with an increase...
