Excuse me, did I say lie? I meant 'lack of transparency'

Obamacare Architect Admits Deceiving Americans to Pass Law

My favorite part, "call it the stupidity of the American voter..." meaning the voter's inability to see through their lies--oh, there's that word again. I meant 'lack of transparency'.

Remember this the next time we are told, "trust us, we are experts and have your best interests at heart."  They wouldn't be boring on about how expert they were if what they were saying made sense on its own. For example, the reason that the CDC and supporters of Obama's resistance to a tourist visa ban on the countries experiencing an ebola outbreak feel compelled to mention their credentials and the supposed scientific consensus that motivates their actions is because their policy is so at odds with the common sense of most people.

And their certainty that they are doing what they are doing for the good of others is what should make you suspicious of them. People are never so unconstrained by conscience as when they are convinced they are doing something for the good of others and not themselves.
