During a press conference on Thursday, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi claims she did not know who Jonathan Gruber was and that he had nothing to do with the Affordable Care Act, also called Obamacare. But, as it turns out, not only was the Massachusetts economics professor mentioned on her website on a page concerning ACA ′myths′, Pelosi mentioned Gruber by name in a presser back in November of 2009 about the healthcare legislation. The MIT professor, Jonathan Gruber, has caused a firestorm this week due to remarks made about how the ′stupidity of the American voter′ was responsible for Obamacare to pass. That the ACA law was deliberately written to deceive and confuse lawmakers and the public. That Obamacare is one big lie!
Since the initial video from October 2013 went viral, three more videos of Jonathan Gruber have surfaced, each showing him bragging about how ′clever′ they, the Obama administration, Congressional Democrats and those like Gruber who helped draft the ACA bill were in orchestrating their deception upon the American people. In the latest video to emerge, Gruber brags about how Massachusetts is essentially stealing some $400 Million dollars a year, thanks to the now deceased Ted Kennedy, to fund their healthcare program, often called Romney Care. In other videos, Gruber brags about how it was another former Massachusetts senator, John Kerry, who came up with the scam of how the ACA taxed health insurance providers to obscure the truth that rates on policies would be increased. This destroys the whole ′its-a-fee-not-a-tax′ argument.
Gruber also acknowledges in the videos that the healthy are paying for the sick to get their care and that states which have opted out of the exchanges are still paying for those states which do have exchanges. The subjects of these issues will be before the US Supreme Court in an upcoming case in the Spring of 2015. Many legal experts are already saying that the videos of Jonathan Gruber may play a big role in the hearings, possibly resulting in the Supreme Court to throw out the whole Obamacare law entirely.
Meanwhile, poor Nancy Pelosi has conveniently forgotten all about Jonathan Gruber. It is remarkablem and a shame, that the voters in California′s Bay area continue to keep reelecting Pelosi. What may be even worse is that House Democrats may reelect her as their Minority Leader. Some Democrat pundits are calling for her to step down. Even Bob Beckel seems to realize that Pelosi has become a drag on the party. Howard Dean, former head of the DNC, has noted publicly that Jonathan Gruber is coming off as the classic Liberal Elitist who is totally disconnected from the American people. Much like Barack Hussein Obama!
