In a revisited interview, the architect of Obamacare is seen saying that the lack of transparency in the President’s healthcare law is a feature not a problem. After all, if you rubes could figure it out, you’d really understand what an un-American mess Obamacare is. Obamacare is a total mess, a Gordian Knot that cannot be cut through by mortal men. And it was made that way on purpose.
The interview in question was of Romneycare and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber from October of last year. In the video taped interview, Gruber is seen noting that the lack of transparency in Obamacare is really a good thing.
Conservative activist group American Commitment posted the video last year and the Daily Signal highlighted it this weekend.
Gruber is seen saying that Obamacare was written in “a tortured way” on purpose so that the facts of what it really does could be hidden behind the reams of paper and millions of “tortured” words that made up the bill.
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies,” Gruber says of the process of passing the law.
This means they lied and did so on purpose in order to get the bill passed.
Ultimately, Gruber said the lack of transparency was a good thing so that you “stupid” voters wouldn’t get a clear picture of the truth.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says the MIT economist who helped write Obamacare. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”
Folks, Democrats are liars. And they don’t lie by happenstance. They use lies to create policy and they use lies to fool you into accepting their pronouncements.
You should also understand that Democrats think you are all stupid. Democrats hate the American people.
Finally, I must point out that this is the guy Romney used to create Romneycare. THIS is why Romney should be persona non grata in the GOP.
