In a video posted by the Daily Signal, Obama architect and known liar, Jonathan Gruber, admitted on camera back in Ocbober of 2013 that they wrote the Obamacare law in such a way to deceive the American people:
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says the MIT economist who helped write Obamacare. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”
Gruber pointed out that if they had told the truth about Obamacare, it never would have passed.
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure the CBO didn’t score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes the bill dies.
…If you made it explicit that healthy people pay in [and] sick people get money it would not have passed.”
Watch the video below:
So they hide the fact that it’s a tax from the American people and from the CBO, but argue it’s a tax in order to win in the Supreme Court. That’s how bad people like Gruber and Obama wanted this bill, that they would do anything to pass it no matter how many lies they had to tell along the way.
This video is a gift to Republicans and they should use it to force Democrats to help them repeal this bill.
UPDATE: The video was actually unearthed by Rich Weinstein and clipped by Phil Kerpen just to set the record straight:
