• Ya Don’t Say: In 2006 Obama Said He Stole Ideas From Jonathan Gruber

    Obamacare has been all over the news for all the wrong reasons lately thanks to the second round of open enrollment for the Un-Affordable Care Act and a series of videos showing Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber admitting that it was the “stupidity” of the “American voter” that was “critical to getting the thing to pass.”

    I mean, it’s as if Jon Gruber went on a How Much Can I Condescend The American People Tour. He’s made one insult to the American people after an another regarding how he helped get Obamacare passed.

    Joining other Democrats who’ve distanced themselves from Gruber include dumb Democrats like Nancy Pelosi who said, “I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill.” And then there’s Obama who said, “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 told that tale over the weekend. And it’s quite possible, or just cosmically amazing, that a tape of Obama praising and admitting to actually stealing ideas from Gruber.

    “You have already drawn some of the brightest minds from academia and policy circles, many of them I have stolen ideas from liberally, people ranging from Robert Gordon to Austan Goolsbee; Jon Gruber; my dear friend, Jim Wallis here, who can inform what are sometimes dry policy debates with a prophetic voice.”

    That’s Obama kissing Gruber’s butt back in 2006, two years before Gruber was brought on as a White House healthcare consultant, and two years before he was paid nearly $400,000 to help write Obamacare.

    Democrats got their butts kicked in the midterm elections because, despite what that idiot Gruber says, they aren’t stupid and they’re tired of being treat as if they were.

    Indeed, midterm election exist polls from Florida to Ohio to Iowa to New Hamshire showed overwhelming support for Obamacare repeal.

    What’s more, Obamacare is headed back to the Supreme Court which could cause its eventual unraveling.

    Ads showing Gruber’s insults should be playing in American households in all 50 states, from sun up to sun down. Americans’ insurance rates are rising and it’s all because Obama and Jon Gruber lied, lied, and lied again.

    That should be enough of a reason for the GOP to force the issue of Obamacare repeal from now until 2016.
