CNN’s Jake Tapper has produced an excellent (and infuriating) four minute video explaining exactly why the scandal surrounding Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber is extremely important.
It’s important because Gruber’s comments prove that the President and the Democrat Party willfully and repeatedly lied to the American people to get Obamacare passed.
Tapper takes a few minutes to cover a few of the lies that Gruber has exposed – but he focuses in on one in particular – the so-called “Cadillac Tax.” The Cadillac Tax has become the most scandalous part of this entire escapade because it clearly unmasks much of the deception that went in to passing Obamacare.
At a town hall meeting where he campaigned for health care legislation in 2009, President Barack Obama pledged to voters that he did not want any tax on health insurance plans he perceived as wastefully generous to ever impact average Americans. But in recent comments by one of the men who helped draft the legislation, MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, that is not only precisely what will happen — but that was the intention of the tax.
White House officials had no comment, despite repeated requests by CNN.
Thank you, Jake Tapper, for being the one main stream reporter who seems willing to ask any of the hard questions.
If it were up to Chuck Todd, there wouldn’t be any questions at all… ever. Listen to what Todd thinks about Grubergate.
