Yes, we have two more Jonathan Gruber videos to share with you today, and yes, we are getting tired of posting them… just like you’re getting tired of seeing them. BUT don’t stop watching them. The Gruber videos are important parts of the puzzle, piecing together the truth behind the lies that were used to sell Obamacare to America.
The latest video comes from an interview that Jonathan Gruber did with Frontline from PBS. In the video he admits that President Obama was in the room with Gruber and other Obamacare architects planning “HOW” they could get Obamacare passed the American people. Here’s a hint… they decided to be sneaky and lie about it. They decided to develop ideas like the “Cadillac Tax”; this may not be definitive proof that Obama is a liar, but it’s pretty darn close.
“The problem is it’s a political nightmare, and people say ‘no, you can’t tax my benefits’…so what we did a lot in that room was think a lot about well how could we make this work? … And [Obama] is really a realistic guy. He was like, ‘look, I can’t just do this.’ He said ‘it’s just not going to happen politically. The bill will not pass. How do we manage to get there through phase-ins and other things?’ And we talked about it. He was just very interested in that topic.”
A few days ago President Obama told reporters in Australia that he did not mislead the American people to get Obamacare passed. The only problem with his explanation is that he was misleading us with it as well!
Here’s what he said…
“The fact that an adviser who was never on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with in terms of the voters is not a reflection on the actual process that was run…”
Except Gruber was more than just an adviser. He had been the architect of Romneycare, on which Obamacare was based. Also, as Gruber mentioned above, he was in on important planning and strategy sessions – getting a chance to influence the President DIRECTLY. One more thing — the government ended up paying Gruber half a million dollars for his “advisory” role!
The latest Gruber video should be proof positive that President Obama is a liar and that he used every weapon in his deceitful arsenal to force Obamacare through an unquestioning media.
