The architect of ObamaCare was just caught on camera calling the American people “stupid.”
Jonathan Gruber, the principle designer of the President’s prized health care law and former paid consultant for the Obama Administration, admitted what the Left thinks about the American people, saying that the only reason that they were able to pass ObamaCare was “the stupidity of the American voter.”
As shocking as it sounds, see for yourself (and it get’s worse):
In fact, this isn’t some slip of the tongue or “off the cuff” remark as he later claimed, he said almost the same thing on other occasions, that “the American voters are too stupid” to understand what the Left was doing with ObamaCare.
But in watching these clips, as outrageous as the insult that the American people are “stupid” is, it’s not the worst part. For me, I know the Left thinks I’m stupid, and I really don’t care about their use of pejoratives, otherwise I couldn’t make it through the day with the mainstream media.
It’s not that Gruber expressed what President Obama’s allies were thinking about “stupid” Americans, it’s that we were lied to.
When Gruber says “the American voters are too stupid to understand the difference,” he’s saying the Obama Administration was able to deceive the American public – lie to us – to pass ObamaCare.
The Obama Administration (and the President himself) told the American voters, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that ObamaCare wasn’t a tax. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that ObamaCare wouldn’t increase the debt. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters ObamaCare would help the economy. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters they would have no trouble signing up for ObamaCare, that it would be as easy as buying on Amazon. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that health care would be affordable for millions of Americans because of subsidies – tax credits. Turns out this may be the biggest lie of all.
