Make that two times ObamaCare's architect called American voters "stupid"

Jonathan Gruber, the MIT economist who helped the Obama administration craft ObamaCare, is trying to downplay his comments at a October 2013 panel discussion, during which he bragged about the designed "lack of transparency" in the Affordable Care Act and the "stupidity of the American voter."

The Department of Health and Human Services expects ObamaCare enrollments through the federal and state exchanges to come in between 9 million and 9.9 million by the end of 2015, according to CNBC, far lower than the most recent estimate released by the Congressional Budget Office in April of this year:

HealthCare.gov still isn't working as promised

More than a year after the Obama administration launched the federal ObamaCare exchange, HealthCare.gov, is still giving health insurance companies problems. Though the second open enrollment period is just days away from launching, backend systems that are supposed to communicate with insurers aren't yet finished, according to Politico:

Supreme Court will hear legal challenge to ObamaCare subsidies

ObamaCare is, once again, headed to the nation's highest court. The Supreme Court will hear oral arguments over an IRS rule that granted tax credit subsidies to states that opted not to create an ObamaCare exchange. By granting review, the Supreme Court is going against the wishes of the Obama administration, which had argued that the case, King v. Burwell, should work its way through lower courts:

Stimulus grants to businesses owned by Kay Hagan's family may face legal review

The North Carolina Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has released a scathing review of a $250,644 stimulus "green energy" grant to a business co-owned by Sen. Kay Hagan's (D-NC) husband and his brothers, which, in turn, contracted others businesses co-owned or connected to Hagan family members. The review, as the Carolina Journal reports, states that the "self-dealing" needs "further legal review":

51 percent of ObamaCare users plan to avoid the exhanges in the next open enrollment period

A majority of HealthCare.gov and state-based exchange users say they don't plan to use the ObamaCare exchanges when the second open enrollment period begins on November 15, according to a survey conducted by BankRate.com. Experts surmise that many consumers who bought health plans on the exchanges will auto-renew, which could mean they'll end up paying more for coverage.

ObamaCare: The American Nightmare

Back in 2010, during an interview on Fox News' Red Eye, Glenn Danzig, whose band, the Misfits, basically founded the horror punk genre, was asked if he'd ever do an album with songs about "puppies and rainbows." Danzig, known for his dark and controversial lyrics, snarked, "Maybe I’ll do a real horror record and talk about the Obama administration."

Get ready, Colorado, another round of health plan cancellations are about to happen

In September 2009, during an interview with a local Fox affiliate, Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) told Coloradans that "[i]f you have an insurance policy you like, doctor or medical facility that provides medical services to you, you'll be able to keep that doctor or that insurance policy." There was no ambiguity in his statement, just the same line that was repeated by President Obama and other Senate Democrats to help sell ObamaCare to a skeptical public.

NSA spying isn't the only danger to Americans' civil liberties under the PATRIOT Act

Since June 2013, Americans have been aware the National Security Agency's domestic spying program, through which it collects the telephony metadata of virtually every person with a cell phone in the United States. Intelligence officials claim authority for this privacy violating program through Section 215 of the USA PATRIOT Act and a misinterpretation of a 1979 Supreme Court case, Smith v. Maryland. But what much of the public doesn't know about are violations of privacy occurring under Section 213 of the PATRIOT Act, the so-called "sneak-and-peek" provision.
