The Obamacare Critics Vindicated

You're too Canadian if: you're laughing at Obamcare...Tim McRaw, comedian

A video surfaced this week that clearly shows the critics of Obamacare were right all along. In the video, the architect of Obamacare---Jonathan Gruber---actually bragged about deceiving the American people. Gruber made his comments at a special event on the campus of MIT about one year ago. In short, he admitted to lying about the law in order to help the Obama administration and Democrats get support for the law.

In one part of the video, Gruber says, "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage." He's right. That's why this administration has been one of the most opaque administrations in American history. Later he added this, "And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter..." Once again, while there's some truth to that statement, one of the main reasons a majority of Americans still don't support Obamacare is because there are also many smart Americans.

It's certainly no secret that the first impulse of this administration and of many Democrats has been to lie to the American people. In fact, Obamacare actually helped expose their lies, deceit, dishonesty, and arrogance. In the last six years, we've seen an administration (and its complicit media) without any core principles. It's actions are based on a warped progressive ideology. Truth be damned. Transparency be damned. Americans be damned. It's as simple as that. As I've posted in the past: the progressive political class keeps flipping American the bird. Obamacare is just one example of that kind of contemptuous and imperious behavior.

Earlier this year, Michelle Malkin summarized Obamacare best: "It's not salvation. It's a criminal enterprise rooted in ideological fraud." Jonathan Gruber admitted that himself.  For once, the administration actually told the truth.

Postscript: Since this was posted last week, The NY Post reported that Gruber profited handsomely from his deceit to the tune of at least $1.5M. Count on that number going higher with more revelations.  Obamacare is an agenda built on lies.

Also breaking in the last few days, as Obama said Gruber was only an "adviser," it's now reported that Obama praised him as "someone he'd {Obama} stolen ideas from, liberally." Oops!!! Caught again in a web of more lies.
