When Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi was asked today for comment about MIT professor Jonathan Gruber's recent remarks that "lack of transparency" and "the stupidity of the American voter" were critical to helping pass Obamacare, she responded briskly: "I don't know who he is. He didn't help write our bill."

Pelosi's remarks are easy enough to check. And she appears to be wrong on both statements.
Sen. Rand Paul on Wednesday reintroduced legislation to force a government watchdog audit of the Federal Reserve, and the bill has its best chance yet of finally clearing Congress.
Mr. Paul’s father, former Rep. Ron Paul, pioneered the push for the legislation during his time in the House, and turned it into a potent political weapon during his presidential campaigns in 2008 and 2012. The senator, who is eyeing a 2016 presidential bid, has picked up the banner.
In the run up to his 2015 State of the Union speech, President Barack Obama was once again trumpeting his administration’s intervention in Detroit.
"Last month, the rescue of the auto industry officially came to an end," Obama said Jan. 7 in Detroit. "The auto companies have now repaid taxpayers every dime and more of what my administration invested in."
To hear former Texas Republican congressman and longtime conservative rock star, Ron Paul, tell it, Marco Rubio is clueless when it comes to the power of the free market.
“It’s like talking to a stone wall,” said Paul.
Paul is that rare breed of politician who has never been afraid to say exactly what he thinks, and he acknowledges that his shoot-from-the-hip way of addressing issues can get him in trouble, but he has no plans to change his ways.
NEW YORK (CNNMoney) —Were you uninsured in 2014? It's time to pay the piper! Some 3 million to 6 million Americans will have to pay an Affordable Care Act tax penalty for not having health insurance last year, Treasury officials said Wednesday. It's the first time they have given estimates for how many people will be subject to a fine. The penalty is $95, or 1% of income above a certain threshold (roughly $20,000 for a couple). So you could end up owing the IRS a lot of money.
