ObamaCare Architect: ‘Stupidity of the American Voter’ Critical to Passing ObamaCare
Obamacare Architect: ‘Stupidity of American Voter’ Was ‘Critical’ to Passing Obamacare (Washington Free Beacon)
In a video that surfaced on Friday, economist and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “lack of transparency” and “stupidity of the American voter” were “critical” to passing the president’s unpopular health care law.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever. But basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.”
Gruber added that he wished “we could make it all transparent,” but said the bill would not have passed if not for the administration’s art of deception on key features of the law.
