You did not misread that headline. The story is incredible. The government (the ATF to be specific) manufactures a crime, finds some hapless Joe, down on his luck and convinces him to commit said crime. When Joe attempts the deed the ATF swoops in to arrest him and the court is forced to hand down decade-long sentences for a manufactured crime.
It's a disgusting abuse of police power, and I'll share the full story with you today on the show.
But first, we discuss a topic I've mentioned several times on the show. During the crafting of ObamaCare, the insurance companies wanted assurances that they would be protected if the governments enrollment numbers turned out to be off. (Shocker I know) So they lobbied for and received a safety net.
Under the law, if insurers perform worse than expected they will be saved by a defacto bailout by the federal government. Where exactly is this money going to come from you might ask? That's another shocker, and I'll explain everything in today's episode.
