Obamacare Architect: Obamacare deliberately written to fool American poeple, CBO… (video) – UPDATED!

This is Jonathan Gruber, a far left “health care economist” from MIT. He is one of the key architects of the Obamacare law. If you ever doubted what we tell you here on a regular basis about how far politicians will go to lie to the American people, prepare to have those doubts evaporated:

Gruber does not mince words. He states that Obamacare was written in a deliberately “tortured” way and relied on the “stupidity of the American voter” to ensure its passage.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure [the Congressional Budget Office] did not score the mandate as taxes,” Gruber said. “If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. 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,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really really critical for the thing to pass.”

Better for Americans to be slapped with a law they don’t understand, than for them to understand the law and work against it, Gruber claimed. “Look, I wish … we could make it all transparent,” Gruber said, “but I’d rather have this law than not.”

So much for the consent of the governed.

UPDATE VI – Harry Reid quoting the Obamacare lies of Jonathan Gruber on the Senate Floor. Keep in mind that Gruber said that the bill was written “in a tortured way” to fool the CBO:

Here is Democrat Senate Leader Harry Reid calling MIT’s Jonathan Gruber “one of the most respected economists in the world,” Harry Reid confidently predicts that thanks to Obamacare, 93% of Americans will see reductions in health care premiums of up to 60%, and 30 million more people will be covered, all while reducing the deficit.

  2. Chuck Norton says:


    One of the Democrat talking points in aid of attempting to separate themselves from the Gruber Obamacare comments is that he was not really involved in crafting the healthcare bill. Of course, that means Nancy Pelosi will look like a moron when pretending she doesn’t know who he is, and other Democrats look like hypocrites. Even Obama got in on the action!

    But don’t worry liberals, the news media has got your back! Check out this awesome propaganda from Politico helping Democrats:

    The very same journalist that called Gruber the architect of Obamacare writes this four months later:

    Democrats are miffed that Gruber has portrayed himself as the “architect” of Obamacare. If he had stuck with being among the legion of policy and technical experts who played a role in the massive legislation, his insulting words wouldn’t have been so combustible.
