Gruber Testifies

MIT professor and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber is testifying before Congress today regarding his comments about “stupid voters” and the deception Democrats employed to cram through the “Affordable” Care Act. Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) slammed Gruber, though mainly for exposing Democrats’ methods. He decided to discredit Gruber: “As far as I can tell, we are here today to beat up on Jonathan Gruber for stupid – I mean absolutely stupid – comments he made over the last few years. Let me be clear, I am extremely frustrated with Dr. Gruber’s statements. They were irresponsibly, incredibly disrespectful, and did not reflect reality. And they were indeed insulting.” Cummings then denied having anything to do with deceiving Americans: “I was in Congress when this law was debated, and Dr. Gruber does not speak for me, or the chairman of the other committees who worked tirelessly on this bill. We debated this legislation for nearly a year before it was finally passed and signed by the president! Never once did I believe or did anyone suggest that we were somehow hiding our goals from the American people!” At least he can’t say so with righteous indignation, but we all know ObamaCare is the biggest of the BIG Lies foisted on this country. “But worst of all,” Cummings concluded, “Dr. Gruber’s statements gave Republicans a public relations gift in their relentless political campaign to tear down the ACA and eliminate health care for millions of Americans!” Gruber just spoke too candidly.
