Say, That Gruber Guy Actually Did Work Closely With Obama

Remember Jonathan Gruber, the MIT professor who served as a key architect of ObamaCare? The one who mocked “the stupidity of the American voter” as he and his elitist buddies crammed the law down our throats? The one whose string of condescending remarks on ObamaCare’s deceptive core were caught on video and released to the public? Naturally, Barack Obama tried to throw Gruber under the bus once he had become politically inconvenient, dismissing him as “some adviser who never worked on our staff” and had little to do with crafting ObamaCare. But according to a series of emails sent from the House Oversight Committee to The Wall Street Journal, Gruber had quite a lot to do with ObamaCare after all. “His proximity to HHS and the White House was a whole lot tighter than they admitted,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz, chairman of the House Oversight Committee. “There’s no doubt he was a much more integral part of this than they’ve said. He put up this facade he was an arm’s length away. It was a farce.” Indeed, Jeanne Lambrew, a top administration official at HHS, thanked Gruber for being an “integral part” in foisting ObamaCare on the nation. And Gruber was in contact with the highest level Obama advisers on the law, from Lawrence Summers to Peter Orszag to Jason Furman to Ezekiel Emanuel. This is simply more confirmation of ObamaCare’s foundation of lies. As if we needed any more proof.
