Obamacare – The Perfect Crime

History is replete with flimflam men, and women. America has had its fair share. The most famous must be Carlo Pietro Giovanni Guglielmo Tebaldo Ponzi, better known as Charles Ponzi.

More recently names like Bernie Madoff and Robert Allen Stanford have become the modern day face of the scam. Madoff ripped off investors to the tune of $65 billion in what many have described as the largest financial fraud in U.S. history. For this he was sentenced to 150 years in the slammer.

Stanford ripped off over 28,000 investors for about $7 billion and was sentenced to 110 years behind bars.

Of Madoff and Stanford, Robert Lenzner at Forbes.com wrote that “Clearly, the SEC should have had the smarts and the will to put Madoff and Stanford out of business before they were able to do so much harm.”

For you low information voters we have “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice who was sentenced to 15 months behind bars this afternoon for her part in the couple’s multimillion-dollar fraud case. Her hubby Joe will spend 41 months for his role.

NJ.com reported that U.S. District Court Judge Esther Salas said “For a moment, I thought about probation. For a moment.” She later added: “I need to send a message that it isn’t who you are, how famous you are. If you do something wrong, there will be consequences to pay.”

Well Judge – that’s a great sentiment and oh if it were only true.

Judge Salas called Teresa Giudice a “dedicated mother” and noted she had expressed “genuine remorse.”

These four private citizens were all rightly jailed and fined for scamming the public while the public sector Jonathan Grubers will get off scot-free, and probably praised by his fellow statists and academe.

And there’s another distinct difference between the “private sector” scam artists and the Gruber type government ones.

Undoubtedly, all the “private sector” crooks knew they did wrong. Recall what judge Salas said? Giudice expressed genuine remorse.

Gruber probably sees no problem with what he had to do. I’m sure he, as well as everyone else privy to the Obamacare plan knew they had to lie, but the ends justified the means. It’s okay to lie to stupid people who don’t know what’s certain to be good for them.

These bureaucrats are self appointed and self anointed experts in their fields and thus know what’s best for us. This is the “Administrative State”, where nameless faceless bureaucratic experts are charged, behind the scenes, with writing laws, creating regulations and making arbitrary legislative decisions, well beyond their constitutional authority. But this is what happens when Congress willingly relinquishes its responsibility.

I say this without doubt: Obamacare will be the greatest fraud ever perpetrated on our country, for if it remains in place, whether it’s “tweaked” or not, will eventually affect every person living in this country. No person or sector will escape its repercussion. Not private, public, rich or poor. Ultimately, it will adversely affect everyone, yet no one will be perp-walked to the courthouse for judgment. No one will be jailed or fined.

It’s the perfect crime.

    • ” Why are citizens held to the law while lawmakers and executives are not?”

      It’s what you get when the hyenas get to judge the hyenas. They’re all running in the same pack.

  1. The ACA’s 2200 pages plus 22,000 pages (so far) of regulations are not a crime perpetrated by one person. I doubt Gruber really played a major role in deciding the strategy as he seems to imply. He’s as big a narcissist and elitist as Barry and certainly not above taking credit for things he didn’t do. But he was absolutely an integral part of the criminal conspiracy and was present when the fraudulent strategy was discussed and planned. And he acted, within his sphere of input, to implement the fraud. In fact, I believe RICO statutes apply here. It was and continues to be an ongoing criminal conspiracy to defraud including the word “affordable” in the name. Shame Devil’s Island and Alcatraz are no longer in use.

    We may need to resurrect the old tar and feather and run out of town on a rail strategy (metaphorically, of course–darn it) to “convince” electeds to repeal their exemptions from their own laws. Actually, I favor “public servants”, whether they be elected, appointed or civil service hirings to, if found guilty of a crime, to receive double sentences. One for the crime and the second for the crime of betraying the public trust.

    • I love it! Maybe we should cal/ email our reps. With that suggestion. Maybe it will start to dawn on them how serious we are about this matter.

      • Which suggestion? Prosecution for ongoing criminal conspiracy? Double sentences for public servants? Tar/feather/run out on a rail? Too few vertebrates in both Houses to make any of them reality yet but makes for sweet dreams, huh?

        The progressive GOP don’t hear any better than the Dems. They’re all suffering from inside-the-beltway tinnitus which negates any voices of reason from outside that echo chamber.

          • Actually, the RICO statutes DO apply. They were nearly tailor made for this regime’s activities. I had thought so back when all the wheeling and dealing was going on for O-no-care and looked them up to see. I’ve checked again for F&F and the other “scandals”. The entirety of this regime IS an ongoing criminal conspiracy…extortion, bribery, fraud, obstruction of justice, bringing in, aiding or assisting aliens in illegally entering the country (if the action was for financial gain), racketeering…add in intimidation of witnesses and whistleblowers…yep, definition of Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act is Barack Obama regime.

  2. Ok. Obama says he does not know this man nor agrees with the statement Gruber made.
    Well, was Obama for the direction, actually taken, to deceive the public and the CBO?
    If not, was Obama fooled as the rest of us “Stupid Americans?
    He says he was not behind the maze of confusion along side Gruber. Correct?
    Then it must be, He is the President and was fooled like the rest of us. Why is he not angry with Gruber for deceiving him as well as the rest of us, as we the citizens are? There is only 2 direction for Obama to take at this point.
    (1) Stand with Gruber and agree the People are stupid and they should have been deceived.
    OR
    (2) Make the correction by now realizing he was fooled as well as the CBO and the rest of us. The law gets either voted on in Congress, with clear understanding and truth as it is written today, or throw the law out completely.
    If # 2 is not Obamas direction, well what does that clearly tell you?
    The People are stupid and they should have been deceived.
    This is the simple truth that no one can change. There are absolutely no gray areas.

    • What he’s going to do is ignore the whole debacle and grant amnesty tomorrow to millions of illegals. He doesn’t care about truth,transparency,doing the right thing. All he cares about is himself and ruining this country.unfortunately,he gets away with it because neither congress or the press ever hold him to account on anything.

  3. You know, actually Obama is the biggest fraud ever perpetrated on this country, followed closely by ObamaCare. If a company used total fraud to market a product (they had to lie or it wouldn’t sell), they would be put out of business and the perpetrators put in jail. So how is it our own government can do this with no consequences. The whole bill should be nullified due to the fraudulence used to pass it. I am so sick of paying for all the liars that reside in DC. They have done nothing in six years to help the average American….but help Islams, illegals…sure, he will do anything for them. Who is going to take a stand against this userper? I work my A$$ off, so all these lazy libs and those that don’t belong here can collect all the taxes I pay in, and those of us that pay our taxes and play by the rules just keep getting screwed more and more. This has got to stop!

    • Well said. I think there are lots of us who have had it up to here. Also,like you said how O caters to illegals and Muslims: notice how 3 Americans were murdered in an Israeli synagogue this week,and there is virtual silence from the White House. Horrendous! Instead,he touts his big announcement got tomorrow night. The man is evil.

      • He did make one of his tepid, limp wristed statements in that I’m-only-doing-this-because-I-have-to voice. The only “feeling” was when he defended Islam’s role.
