ObamaCare Architect Credits ‘Lack Of Transparency’ And ‘Stupidity Of The American Voter’ For Passage Of Healthcare Law

Caught on tape:

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

–  Video of the Day – Obamacare Architect Credits “Lack of Transparency” and “Stupidity of the American People” for Passage of Healthcare Law (Liberty Blitzkrieg, Nov 10,2014):

Earlier today, I published a post titled, Inside the Mind of an Oligarch – Sheldon Adelson Proclaims “I Don’t Like Journalism, which zeroed in on the condescending attitude oligarchs and their technocrat minions have toward the general population. I wrote:

The term oligarch is reserved for those with extreme wealth who also want to control the political process, policy levers and most other aspects of the lives of the citizenry in a top-down tyrannical and undemocratic manner. They think they know best about pretty much everything, and believe unelected technocrats who share their worldview should be empowered so that they can unilaterally make all of society’s important decisions. The unwashed masses (plebs) in their minds are unnecessary distractions who must to be told what to do. Useless eaters who need to be brainwashed into worshipping the oligarch mindset, or turned into apathetic automatons incapable or unwilling to engage in critical thought. Either outcome is equally acceptable and equally encouraged.

It’s quite timely that those words appeared on the site the same day that a video clip emerged of MIT economics professor, and the architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, admitting that the legislation was intentionally complex and misleading in order to pass Congress and elicit limited outrage from the “stupid” American public.

The Hill reports that:

An architect of the federal healthcare law said last year that a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” helped Congress approve ObamaCare.

He suggested that many lawmakers and voters didn’t know what was in the law or how its financing worked, and that this helped it win approval.

“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” Gruber said. “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 made the comment while discussing how the law was “written in a tortured way” to avoid a bad score from the Congressional Budget Office. He suggested that voters would have rejected ObamaCare if the penalties for going without health insurance were interpreted as taxes, either by budget analysts or the public. 

The arrogance and destructiveness of this man knows no bounds. Look at how excited he gets, flailing his hands all over the place as he discusses the gigantic deception that is Obamacare.

The full clip can be found on UPenn’s website.

As I have said for years now, these people are sick and dangerous. They are also in power. This needs to change as soon as possible.

  1. With the help of a corrupt corporate media, the Obama care debacle was passed. It will never be repealed because it benefits too many greedy guts. They even have free collection services through the IRS. It is a grand giveaway to private business, unfortunately, the wage slaves will be unable to pay it, so it will go to those earning a bit more……….what they don’t seem to understand is that the empire is finished, and in a few more months, it really won’t matter much. When the dollar collapses, everything else does, too.
    Qatar dumping the dollar means the other Arabs will do the same. The US has been a terror to the middle east for decades, serving the few at the cost of everyone else. Now, the hatred of the US is so deep, so understandable even to Americans, the abandonment of the dollar is one weapon they have to drive the US out of their countries, back into their own lands.

    We are down to weeks or months, and the dollar will collapse.
