Conservative icon Charles Krauthammer was on Fox News’ O’Reilly Factor when he said what may be the most cutting piece of commentary on the latest scandal from Obamacare. Several recent videos have surfaced of multiple occasions where Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber called the American people “stupid” for believing Democrat lies about Obamacare.
Bill O’Reilly: Obamacare. Now you heard the MIT guy [Jonathan] Gruber saying, you know what? We conned everybody. They weren’t paying attention. They don’t really care. And it’s not what it was sold as. And you say?
Charles Krauthammer: This is exactly what conservatives have been saying for four years, what we’re hearing now is the true voice of liberal arrogance. They believe this. They believe that the voters are stupid, as he said. And they believe that they know the right way, they have to lead the masses to the promised land and they can only do it by deception. And that’s what he said openly. We wanted to get the bill. We didn’t care about how we did it so we lied about everything. We lied about if you can keep the plan knowing that you can’t keep your plan. We lied about the fact that this would be a transfer of wealth, a massive transfer of wealth because, as Gruber said, had they known that, it would never have passed. They lied about every aspect of this. And I think that is what has been charged all along and it is a scandal of the media that this has to be discovered in the sixth year of the presidency rather than talked about at the time when it was obvious they were lying about all this. The idea of it being a transfer of wealth was known from the beginning, but they got away with it.
Krauthammer hits at the heart of the matter here. For years Republicans told voters that the Democrats were either wrong or they were lying about Obamacare. At the time, Democrats and the media said a lot of terrible things about Republicans –like “Republicans are playing politics,” “Republicans are paranoid,” “Republicans are lying about Democrats lying!”
The media shoveled the Democrat talking points like the good little flunkies they are… and Obamacare was shoved down the throats of Americans without one single Republican vote.
Now one of the architects of Obamacare admits what Republicans have been saying all along… and the media acts like it’s a non-story. Democrats pretend that everyone knew all along what Obamacare really was, and we are left holding the proverbial bag.
The Democrat Party and the lying, no good politicians that voted for Obamacare should all be made to suffer. They should all be forced to deal with the repercussions of LYING to the American people…
The question is, will we make them pay?
