In a rare moment of honesty liberal economist and Obamacare creator Jonathan Gruber admitted that Democrats lied, obfuscated and twisted the facts in an concertedly dishonest effort to pass Obamacare.
“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scores the mandate as taxes the bill dies. In terms of Risk Rated Subsidies, if you get a law that makes explicit healthy people pay in and sick people get money. It would not have passed.
Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever. But basically, that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.
… We could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.”
This short video clip explicitly describes everything that is wrong with the Democrat Party today.
The Democrats are more than willing to do whatever it takes to get their way on just about any issue. Lying, cheating, stealing and worse… none of it is off limits to Democrats. Their chief goal is getting their way, it doesn’t matter how that happens. The modern Democrat doesn’t believe in Democracy or the will of the people… they only believe in POWER.
