Gruber in 2008: ‘I Love’ the Hillary Clinton Healthcare Plan

‘Hillary Clinton’s plan was a Massachusetts plan’

 “I love the Hillary Clinton plan, what can I say. The Hillary Clinton plan was the Massachusetts plan. The Hillary Clinton plan was Obama’s plan plus a mandate and I think it was a better plan. I think that a mandate is really a central part of doing fundamental healthcare reform. I was surprised politically she did that. I think Obama was a lot smarter politically to not have a mandate at least in his proposal for the election. But I do hope – I think these numbers from Massachusetts, it’s gaining a lot of traction, I know the folks in the Senate who are working this are taking a mandate very seriously and I hope that’ll be part of a national debate.”
