Mike says about President Barack Obama's notably debated executive action order on immigration: "His signing the executive action order...is the perfect framework for a deal of some sort to happen. The question is: Will Barack Obama...cut a deal that's good for him that Republicans will accept? This order...is a very narrowly drawn executive order." Today on Morning Joe.

Mike and the Morning Joe team discuss regrettable comments made by MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, who has been described as the "architect of Obamacare." Gruber attributes the passing of the legislation to the "lack of transparency" in the law and the "stupidity of the American voter". Mike likens Gruber to David Stockman of the Reagan administration, who said, "None of us really understands what's going on with all these numbers," in reference to the federal budget.
