Obamacare architect’s video admission: ‘Stupidity of the American voter’ got bill passed

November 10, 2014 by Joe Saunders

The MIT professor who helped build the Obamacare monster is caught on video admitting – even bragging – that the law’s passage depended on the “stupidity of the American voter.”



In a YouTube video posted by the conservative group “American Commitment,” Gruber discusses the process of passing Obamacare with a barely concealed contempt for the American public – and the institutions that are supposed to guard it from the government.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies,” Gruber said.

“OK, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed…

“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 for the thing to pass… Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”

What attogance !

If the American people don't want a massive increase in taxes and government, if they want to make their own health care decisions, they are 'stupid'. Reminds me of Hillary's famous we take your money for your own food.

It was anything but the stupidity of the American voter. If anyone can recall, Scott Brown was elected to put a stop to it and when that happened, the Rats were forced to use archaic rules like reconciliation and a handful of unelected Rat Senators (they were appointed just for the purpose of passing this steaming log). Then Justice Roberts was turned to make the thing Constitutional despite it being illegal. The voters did everything in their power to stop it. It was the ruling class that forced it down our necks.

The shining lining in this is that passing this law as effectively destroyed the Rat party for generations.
