Romney and ObamaCare Inextricably Linked. Jonathan Gruber Spills in Another Video.

You can blame Mitt Romney for ObamaCare.

All over the news right now is Romney’s right hand man in healthcare reform, Jonathan Gruber, who calls the former governor his ‘hero’.

Gruber was the main creator of RomneyCare in Massachusetts, and a major architect of ObamaCare. And he has no problem speaking his mind about ‘stupid American voters‘ that needed to be led into ObamaCare because we didn’t know what was good for us.

From Forbes:

Today, new video surfaced in which Gruber said that “the stupidity of the American voter” made it important for him and Democrats to hide Obamacare’s true costs from the public. “That was really, really critical for the thing to pass,” said Gruber. “But I’d rather have this law than not.”

Together Romney and Gruber perpetrated the disastrous changes in American health care. Thanks Mitt.

The video clip is from a January 18, 2012 speech wherein Gruber reinforces his arrogant elitism and clues  us in to how he and the former governor manipulated the public. Here’s a partial transcript of his remarks:

…the hero of our story, Mitt Romney, who created the third way…incremental universalism. Incremental meaning build on what works, if people like what they have, let them keep it. Universalism meaning, but we can still get to universal coverage.

…basic core of the plan in Massachusetts, which became the basic core of the national plan as well…to build three legged stool.

  1. reform insurance markets so that insurers can no longer discriminate against the sick, in fact, that leg had already been built in Massachusetts…Massachusetts is one of five states in the late 1990’s that moved to community rating of health insurers. In all five states what happened was what economists predicted would happen—putting in these rules had destroyed the insurance market.
  1. to make it work you need second leg of stool, the individual mandate.
  1. can’t mandate individual insurance without making it affordable. In Massachusetts in 2005, a family health insurance policy cost $12,000…So, the third leg of the stool required subsidies.

 

About M. Catharine Evans

Brother and sister Hans and Sophie Schell, co-founder and member of White Rose, an underground student anti-Nazi group, printed flyers and pamphlets denouncing Hitler and his regime. They were arrested February 18, 1943. Both were beheaded February 22, 1943. In Sophie's cell, a guard recovered a little scrap of paper with the word "Freedom" written on it. Before he died, her brother Hans urged good people "to stand defiant before overwhelming power." And to his brother he wrote, "Remain strong--no compromises." As our representatives in the press and in DC on all sides--Republican, Independent, Democrat, Libertarian, right and left wing--cower and compromise before the evil Obama regime, real patriots speak out everywhere.
