Democrats Loved Jonathan Gruber Before They Forgot Who He Was (Washington Free Beacon)

In the wake of unearthed controversial remarks by Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, including his mocking the “stupidity of the American voter” in helping the law get passed, Democrats are trying to distance themselves from Gruber, saying he’s not a central authority figure on the legislation.

It’s not so long ago, though, that many prominent liberals cited Gruber as a “respected economist” whose studies and conclusions were central to proving Obamacare would be successful. The Obama administration paid him nearly $400,000 for technical advice on drafting it, according to CBS.

Sen. Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said in 2009 Gruber’s defense of the Affordable Care Act was high praise, indeed, according to PJ Media.
