Earlier this week, we reported on Jonathan Gruber, an MIT professor and architect of President Obama’s health care reform legislation. Gruber it seems, expressed his belief that Obamacare only managed to get passed into law due to two factors – the political advantage of the administration lacking transparency, as well as “the stupidity of the American voter.”
It was a stunning statement leading conservative commentator Charles Krauthammer to opine that it represents the “true voice of liberal arrogance.”
Gruber would go on MSNBC to explain himself, saying the comments were made “off the cuff” and that he regretted having made them.
Were they really off the cuff? Or was it a rare glimpse of what Obamacare proponents truly feel about the American people?
The video below may provide an answer. Fox News’ Megyn Kelly provides a 5-second clip showing Gruber once again calling Americans “stupid.”
Via the Daily Caller:
Yet another video has emerged of MIT professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber calling Americans “stupid,” and bragging about how the Affordable Care Act’s drafters had to deceive the public in order to pass the law.
Fox News’ Megyn Kelly was the first to air the video on her program, “The Kelly File.” Kelly played the video of Gruber appearing on MSNBC’s “Ronan Farrow Daily” apologizing for his earlier remarks. “I was speaking off the cuff and I spoke inappropriately, and I regret making those comments,” he said.
“But now tonight,” Kelly reported,” more video has surfaced showing this was not the first time Mr. Gruber called the American people stupid in an ‘off-the-cuff’ remark. In this next clip from also last year, Mr. Gruber explains how Democrats played with the language of the Obamacare law so that it achieved their goals, by again, fooling the stupid public.”
How do you feel as an American? Were you too stupid to understand that the Obama administration was fooling you on Obamacare, or was it the politicians who voted for it that were truly the stupid ones?
