I'm anxiously awaiting your chart that uses "better" numbers than Mr. Gruber's.

Speck, every day when I think you're about as uninformed as anyone can be, you set a new personal record.

Would THIS be the same Mr. Gruber?

Gruber served as a student representative on a committee helping to reshape MIT’s undergraduate curriculum, and got an internship at the Brookings Institution in Washington, where he was “bitten by the liberal policy-advocacy bug.”

Well, I believe so! He's a devout liberal, and that means he's, in all likelihood, a pathological liar. Most liberals are, because they have to be. Their ideas suck. They say bald-faced lies like, "If you like your health care plan, you can keep it", even when they know you can't.

“It’s going to be incredibly exciting to figure out all the things this law is doing,” Gruber says. “There are these feedback loops of policy affecting research, which affects policy, and I think that’s where economics is at its best.”

Yes, Mr. Gruber, it's incredibly exciting to force all Americans into Procrustean health care plans that jack up the cost and destroy jobs. And I absolutely agree that there are 'feedback loops'. One is when you eat tainted food, and have to vomit. That's just like how young people are treating Zerocare. Another feedback loop is how informed voters deal with politicians who lie to their face about how they can keep their health care plan, or, at least the politicians who voted for such a POS plan.

Have a day.
