Gruber: Republicans Are Trying To ‘Confuse People’ About ObamaCare
ROONEY: "You've heard more of it than I did over the last two years about what was going to happen when we finally got a Republican Congress. Will they try to dismantle this?"
GRUBER: "They will not try to dismantle the fundamental core, which is the three pillars on which it stands. They will try to go after these peripheral pieces, but I think that the much bigger risk is the court case than the Congress at this point."
ROONEY: "Are they hearing from constituents? They must be. There must be people who wouldn't have any kind of healthcare who are not for this?"
GRUBER: "I think that this comes to the master strategy of the Republican party, which is to confuse people enough about the law so that they don’t understand that the subsidies they’re getting are because of the law. It goes back to the old Jimmy Kimmel bit where he asked people if they liked ObamaCare and they said no, but they asked people if they liked the ACA and they said yes. There are now 8 million people getting subsidies. The number of uninsured Americans is down by 10 million people. You think these people should be standing up shouting? I think they just don’t realize it’s Obamacare."
