ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber apparently doesn’t think much of the intelligence of the American people.
A new tape has surfaced showing Gruber, once again, claiming the health care law’s authors took advantage of the “stupid” American public.
The tape, played on Fox News’ “The Kelley File,” showed Gruber speaking at an October 2013 event at Washington University in St. Louis.
Referring to the so-called “Cadillac tax” on high-end health plans, he said: “They proposed it and that passed, because the American people are too stupid to understand the difference.”
Now, the ass is trying to tell everyone that it is that other group trying to confuse the masses. Ass should shutup and go hide in a hole like Saddam did.
Unfortunately for this country, he is telling the truth…most voters in this country are stupid. In Gruber’s own words.
In a video that surfaced on Friday, economist and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “lack of transparency” and “stupidity of the American voter” were “critical” to passing the president’s unpopular health care law.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever. But basically, that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.”
Gruber added that he wished “we could make it all transparent,” but said the bill would not have passed if not for the administration’s art of deception on key features of the law.
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” Gruber said. “If you had a law that made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed.”
Gruber made clear that deliberately lying to the American people was a necessary measure in the passage of Obamacare.
“There’s things that I wish could change,” Gruber said. “But I’d rather have this law than not.”
May his you know what rot off slowly for what he and his pals have done to this country.
