Architect Jonathan Gruber has been in the headlines for claiming the President misled the American people about Obamacare, because they were too “stupid” to figure it out. Gruber not only bragged about duping the people, but the Congressional Budget Office and the Supreme Court as well.
Gruber explained that the “bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes.”
Eventually, despite getting that little fact past the CBO, the Supreme Court would uphold the Affordable Care Act precisely because it was a tax.
Everyone had been misled – the CBO, Supreme Court, and worst of all, the American people.
The series of videos showing Gruber, a man who personally met with the President to discuss the allegedly Affordable Care Act have been so damning that Obama had to address it.
On the question of whether or not he misled the public, Obama responded “No, I did not.”
But in November of 2013, a prominent Democrat Congresswoman with possible future designs on the White House, actually claimed that “we all knew” he misled the public on Obamacare.
Appearing on This Week With George Stephanopoulus, Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) asked if she felt personally misled by the President. To which she responded, “No, we all knew.”
Watch the video below …
The transcript of the interview portion can be found at ABC News, but one really needs to watch the clip to soak in the tone, and the slight pause after Gillibrand says “we all knew.”
They all knew they were being fed a line, but Gillibrand and the Democrats voted Obamacare into law anyway.
Begging the question, when Gruber was discussing the “stupidity of the American voter,” was he actually referring to Democrat lawmakers?
That said, we have a question for you – Do recent reports surfacing that show the Obama administration believed the American people were too stupid to understand his health care law make you angry?
Remember, they all knew the President was lying to you.
