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.

Are you the same Mr. Woodward who wrote a post about cognitive dissonance and people refusing to accept facts that conflict with their ideological beliefs?

Thanks for providing an example of that, not to mention a textbook example of ad hominem argument.

If you have a problem with Mr. Gruber's data and reasoning, perhaps you should address them directly with data and reasoning of your own.
