White House Response To Gruber Comments: Nobody Cares About “Eight-Year-Old Videos”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest downplayed and defended President Obama’s response to the insulting comments made by ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber, where he said it was the stupidity of the American voter that got Obamacare passed.

“I just heard about this. The fact that some adviser who never worked on our staff expressed an opinion that I completely disagree with, in terms of the voters, is no reflection on the actual process that was run,” Obama said about Gruber over the weekend.

In an attempt to outdo his boss, Josh Earnest called criticism of Gruber’s comments “old political arguments” and said “it’s easier to talk about six and eight- year-old videos” than the success of Obamacare.

ABC News reporter Jon Karl asked Earnest if he “would acknowledge he was an important figure in crafting this law?” Earnest replied saying “I think the president acknowledged in the news conference that he did over the weekend . . . that Mr. Gruber was an adviser.”

No Josh, you disgraceful idiot. Jonathan Gruber wasn’t just an advisor. Hell. Just today, former Obama “Car Czar” Steve Rattner blew up the whole “Gruber was just an advisor narrative” when he admitted that Gruber was “the man” who put the Affordable Care Act together.

“If you go back and look at The Washington Post or The New York Times or anything from that period, you will find Jonathan Gruber’s name all over it,” Rattner told MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “I remember that when I was in the White House, he was certainly viewed as an important figure in helping to put Obamacare.

Jonathan Gruber has made more than $2 million as a consultant for the federal government. He raked in nearly $400,000 for crafting Obamacare. And the videos showing Gruber insulting Americans are from speeches he gave in 2013 and 2014, not six or eight years ago.

Obamacare is now more unpopular than ever, according to a brand new Gallup poll. Just 37 percent say they approve of the Un-Afforable Care Act. That’s a full percentage point below the previous low in January. Another 56 percent disapprove of Obamacare. And that’s a new high in disapproval.
