Barack Obama: ‘Absolutely Not’ Legitimate for Future Presidents to Apply My Logic on Executive Actions
Barack Obama is a do as I say, not as I do kind of guy. Sorry, you can't have it both ways.
Over the past two weeks Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber has been seen on video repeatedly insulting the intelligence of the American voter and admitting the healthcare overhaul was written to deceive the public about costs, taxes and a redistribution of wealth of healthy to sick.
Today, Chairman of the House Oversight Committee Darrell Issa officially invited Gruber to testify on Capitol Hill.
"The Committee on Oversight and Government reform requests your testimony at a hearing on Tuesday, December 9, 2014, at 9:30 a.m. in room 2154 Rayburn House Office Building in Washington D.C.," Issa wrote in a letter to Gruber Friday, adding that he should be prepared to make a five minute opening statement before answering questions.
Gruber received nearly $6 million in taxpayer money at local and federal governments for work as a contractor on the healthcare law.

@BarackObama that's not a FACT. It's an estimate that's disputed by both sides http://t.co/Gw8eqdZFvp

@BarackObama Fact - you've lied about so much that without proof I don't believe anything you say. This flies in the face of basic economics

Washington (AFP) - It's a Hollywood sci-fi fantasy that has long eluded the Pentagon: a flying "mothership" that launches smaller aircraft.The Pentagon's research agency put out a request to industry this month to outline how a large cargo plane could release drones to spy on or attack an enemy and then return to the flying aircraft carrier.The concept conjures up fantastical images from "The Avengers" film and the "StarCraft" video game, with large, lumbering motherships sending out smaller craft -- but there are no cloaking devices involved in this particular project.At the moment, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is not close to constructing any test planes and is merely exploring the possibility on paper, officials and experts said."This is the float-the-idea stage of the concept. It's not the build-me-a-prototype stage. We're not to that yet," said author Peter Singer, who has written extensively about robots and warfare.In a conceptual drawing from DARPA, a cargo plane resembling a C-130 releases a squadron of drones that look similar to Predator or Reaper aircraft.
