Ah. Jonathan Gruber. The gift that keeps on giving… like the feeling you get when you’re caught in traffic on the bridge and you’ve just finished eating a bran muffin and drinking a big cup of coffee.
After several videos were leaked showing the “Architect of Obamacare” shedding light on the many lies that were told to us to sell us on Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber became a household name. Then he went in front of Congress only to say that he wasn’t sure about all of this stuff that he had said. But now, there’s more…
Apparently Mr. Gruber was telling the folks in the White House and on Capitol Hill that Obamacare would never be “affordable” even as they were telling everyone that it would be! The Daily Caller has uncovered a series of memos written by Gruber way back in October of 2009 wherein he admits that Obamacare won’t be affordable… and then goes on to explain why that’s a GOOD THING!
“The problem is it starts to go hand in hand with the mandate; you can’t mandate insurance that’s not affordable. This is going to be a major issue,” Gruber admitted in an October 2, 2009 lecture, the transcript of which comprised the policy brief.
“So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”
Who cares about all of those lies we’ve been telling these people! The ends justifies the means and so forth!
This is how liberals do policy, folks. They know that none of their true policy ideas would fly with a mostly conservative to moderate citizenry like we have here in the USA, so they have to cover up and disguise their proposals to make them seem more moderate. The truth is that they are pushing for European socialism and everything they do is with that end goal in mind.
So if they have to lie to us to get us to accept socialized medicine… then so be it! They do not care. And Gruber is the proof that they do not care.
Don’t miss the importance of Jonathan Gruber, folks. He is gnarly truth to every scary story Republicans have ever told you about Democrats. He is the evidence that, to a Democrat politician, the truth only matters so far as it is relevant and helpful to their goals.
Gruber is Liberalism and Liberalism is Gruber.
