Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of Obamacare, has been caught over and over again mocking the American people. Gruber apparently has not objected to the fact that those same taxpayers were on the hook for $6 million in federal and state contracts awarded to him over the past six years.

Nicolás lives with his dad, Sebastián…and his other dad, Pablo. This is the premise of the pamphlet funded by the European Union that the Movement for Homosexual Liberation and Integration (MOVILH) will distribute among 500 kindergartens in Chile under the auspices of the National Preschools Council (JUNJI).
