Congressmen Jim Jordan (R-OH) and Trey Gowdy (R-SC) grilled Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber on the outrageous statements he has made on the “stupidity” of the American people – and the need to deceive them to get Obamacare rammed through Congress. Gruber’s statements have been exposed in numerous videos that have surfaced in recent weeks. He has proudly declared that he and the Obama Administration lied to the American people and members of Congress in order to get the bill passed and signed into law.

Barack Hussein Obama recently participated in a private conference call with supporters of Senator Mary Landrieu who expected to lose to Congressman Bill Cassidy in a December 6 runoff election. Obama hasn’t openly endorsed Landrieu – and Landrieu is running ads slamming Obama and claiming she wants to overhaul Obamacare. In short, they’re playing games with the voters in Louisiana who are likely to throw her out of office very soon.
Remember in 2009, when Obamas promoting Obamacare before a joint session of Congress? Remember when Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) shouted “You lie!” when Obama claimed with a straight face that “there are also those who claim that our reform efforts would insure illegal immigrants. This, too, is false. The reforms I’m proposing would not apply
Congressman Jim Jordan (R-OH) appeared on “Hannity” recently to discuss Jonathan Gruber, the chief architect of Obamacare and why he should be brought before a House committee to be grilled by Members of Congress about his deliberate lies about Obamacare.
“This isn’t just a choice between Mary Landrieu and Bill Cassidy. It’s a choice between whether this generation is willing to do what it needs to do to share that dream. The American Dream has never been about being rich. The American Dream was about achieving happiness and leaving your family better off than yourself.”
South Carolina Congressman Trey Gowdy says Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber should be encouraged to keep talking because he’ll continue to reveal the truly deceptive way that Obama and his cronies pushed through a federal takeover of our health care system.
Gruber has openly admitted that Obamacare was written in confusing language designed to fool what he calls “stupid” Americans. He also admits that if the Obama Administration told the truth about what Obamacare would do, it wouldn’t have passed at all. In other words, because Americans are so stupid, they don’t know what’s best for them – so elitists like Jonathan Gruber and Barack Obama must lie to them and impose their will on all of us.
The counting of absentee ballots is over in Alaska and Dan Sullivan has defeated incumbent liberal Sen. Mark Begich to be the next U.S. Senator from that state. Begich was a lock-step liberal who supported Obama’s radical agenda. Sullivan had an 8,000 vote lead in last week’s election, but more than 40,000 absentee votes had not yet been counted.
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. So it was written to do that. In terms of risk related subsidies, if you had a law which made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money it would not have passed. 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 to get the thing to pass.”
I think it’s a little disingenuous at this point. He has had six years to work with Republicans and now he is offering a hand and willing to sit down and work with Senator McConnell and our other soon-to-be colleagues and again, six years we’ve have had that opportunity to work together and move America in the right direction but he has been so disengaged and not willing to work with Republicans or even some members of his own party.
