Yet another scandalous video related to the ObamaCare deception has surfaced — this time insulting small businesses. That makes three videos that document the thinking behind the scam by liberal Democrats and President Obama.
In a newly released video, the ObamaCare architect, MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber, said he wrote tax credits into the ObamaCare bill — purportedly to benefit small businesses because “you gotta say you like small businesses in America or you’re a communist…”
Professor Gruber made the controversial statement at a meeting of the NOBLIS policy wonks in Falls Church, Virginia.
The liberal professor significantly enriched his bank account at the expense of American consumers.
He was paid nearly $400,000 for his role in writing and passage of the controversial healthcare law. Then, he made thousands more advising various state governments on how to establish those dubious state exchanges.
You’ll recall the earlier release of two videos of MIT Professor Gruber, who openly condemned “the stupidity of the American voter” in a presentation on October 17, 2013 at the University of Pennsylvania’s Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics.
He said voter stupidity made it possible to underhandedly pass the devastating legislation.
Here’s an excerpt of his disturbing comments:
“In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, okay. Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass…”
Then, the ensuing uproar from his outrageous comments forced him to apologize on MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow Daily.
“The comments in the video were made in an academic conference,” he told his liberal interviewer. “I was speaking off the cuff, and I basically spoke inappropriately. And I regret having made those comments.”
Professor Gruber’s attitude is very problematic. In writing the bill, he threw some crumbs at small business in a disingenuous marketing scheme to prevent criticism.
He gave concessions to small businesses — as a political demagogue in a scheme get the law passed — not as an economist to benefit the healthcare system in America.
Along with the other damaging components of the law, that’s unacceptable.
