Architect of Obamacare says American voters are stupid. Astonishing.
Gruber doesn't even try to conceal his contempt for the American voter. He laughs about "the stupidity of the American voter." That's a literal quote. This guy is a contemptuous asshole.
In October of 2013 the University of Pennsylvania held a discussion on Obamacare featuring Gruber. Here's the crux:
GRUBER: This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure that the CBO (Congressional Budget Office) did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay. So it was written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law that said healthy people are going to pay in -- if you made it explicit that healthy people pay in sick people get money it would not have passed. Okay.Now I have to say, no one but a dedicated communist could possibly believe this guy would be fuckin' BRAZEN enough to say this. Well, roll the fuckin' TAPE:
Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical in getting the thing to pass, and, you know, it's the second best argument. And I wish Mark was right, we could make it all transparent, but I'd rather have this law than not.
Interestingly, after this vid was discovered by conservatives a few weeks ago and posted on the Net, U Penn removed it from their site. Gee, wonder why? But of course by the time they did so copies were already all over the Net. Sorry, fascist fraudsters, you were too late!
If the vid says "This video has been removed" I guess Penn decided to take it down again.
So do you think this guy--and the regime he works for--have your best interests at heart? Well, if you're a member of the favored Democrat constituency, I guess maybe so. But if you're a hard-working taxpayer, then no way. An honest, "transparent" regime would have been...well, honest about the bill and its costs and effects. These thugs weren't--because they knew they could fool stupid voters into seeing it as "something for nothing."
This guy hates you, and holds you in utter contempt. He thinks you're stupid, which is pretty standard for people who want to dismantle America as we've known it.
And of course, considering the electorate as a whole he's got a point: a majority of the votes cast in 2008 and 2012--whether legally or not--resulted in the current piece of marxist shit occupying the White House.
Okay, you really need to click here. The link is to a *really* damning piece on Gruber, showing him on two separate occasions saying the bill means two totally opposite things.
This Gruber piece of shit is a total snake--a total liar. A con man. He's totally untrustworthy.
