Obamacare Architect Gruber Demands “Larger Mandate Penalty”

Bureaucrat who said “stupidity” of Americans helped get law passed doubles down

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber – the bureaucrat who once bragged that the “stupidity” of the American people was crucial for passing the health care law in the first place – told CNN that the “fix” for Obamacare was to impose a “larger mandate penalty”.

CNN’s CAROL COSTELLO: “So let’s talk about how exactly you can fix Obamacare. I just need you to be specific because I think people really want answers. So Hillary Clinton says she can fix Obamacare. So what would one fix that would drive premiums down?”

JONATHAN GRUBER: “Look, once again, there’s no sense it has to be fixed. The law is working as designed. However, it could work better. And I think, probably the most important things experts would agree on is we need a larger mandate penalty“…

Gruber’s arrogance is incredible. Even after the Obama administration acknowledged that premiums are set to skyrocket next year, Gruber thinks that the answer is to financially punish Americans to an even greater degree.

Gruber is essentially admitting that Obamacare is designed to make Americans destitute.

“ObamaCare was never designed *not* to overwhelm you with the shifting of massive costs. ObamaCare was designed to crush you in costs,” points out the Conservative Treehouse blog.

His comments shouldn’t come as much of a surprise given what Gruber thinks of the American people.

A series of videos that emerged in 2014 featured Gruber admitting that Obamacare was deceptively crafted in order to fool “stupid” Americans into not realizing that it would mean massive price hikes and that the law’s “lack of transparency (was) a huge political advantage” in selling it.

    Stupid is as stupid does. The grub’s arrogance is superseded only by his own stupidity.

      The dumbing down of the American public has been largely successful, Two generations of students with around 100 IQ is a preview of what lies ahead.

        A large percentage of the American public continue supporting the Politicians that have done this to them, That proves my point.

        • marlene

          Most of our political bureaucrats were not supported by a large percent. What they didn’t win, they stole.

    MIT is apparently not a place to send your child for economics or design The professors can only FORCE their economics to make them work and it still is a failure!

    Apparently this administration has never heard of “Taxation without representation”…wow…what jerks.

    • lloyd Lisco

      The low IQ American voters continue supporting the Congressional Criminals.

      • Because the ugly effs in the past, have promised these LIV’s, free shit. Therefore, the
        Republicans should counter, with the same proclamation. Vote for the Republican
        candidate, and win more free-shit than is offered by the Republicans. It would be a
        start. What is good for the goose, is good for the gander.
