When President Obama and people such as Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid were telling Americans the Affordable Care Act was a good thing, we knew better. We understood Obama was lying about us being able to keep our doctors and our plans. We realized he was lying about healthcare insurance prices going down by $2,500 per year for a family of four.
But as it turned out, it didn’t matter. Congress did not know any better, and neither did the Supreme Court. These groups of our “leaders” – whose salaries we pay with our taxes – made it possible for an absolutely horrible piece of healthcare legislation to pass. And now we taxpayers will be paying the price for a long time.
Now, it’s one thing for us to sit around saying, “I told you so.” It’s another when the architect of ObamaCare announces that the only reason the Affordable Care Act passed is because of the “stupidity” of Americans. That’s a classic case of adding insult to injury.
Jonathan Gruber said the lack of transparency played a major role in getting ObamaCare passed and that the law was written in such a way as to take advantage of “the stupidity of the American voter.” He also admitted the individual mandate – which was upheld by the Supreme Court only because they saw it as a tax – was not actually a tax. That’s exactly what many ObamaCare opponents had been arguing to no avail.
So, do you think Obama and other Democrats who have now been caught pulling the wool over the eyes of Americans will apologize? Of course not. We’re dealing with an administration that refuses to take responsibility for its actions and will never, under any circumstances, admit it was wrong about anything.
Let me know how you feel about the main ObamaCare architect admitting that the creators of the healthcare law were counting on Americans being stupid to get the law passed.
