Obamacare Architect: Hey America, Sorry I Called You 'Stupid'

All forgiven now, hugs and shrugs?


Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was caught on tape bragging on a few things about Obamacare and about its proponents’ opinions of the Americans who support the law. Obamacare’s details, he said, needed to be concealed from the people in order to pass. And the people had to be kept “stupid,” and Obamacare’s supporters had to lie about that whole tax thing.

Overall, Gruber would rather have lied and kept everyone in the dark than been honest and see it fail. That’s all in the original video, when Gruber was speaking among friends.

That was a year ago. The video has now surfaced, and Gruber turned down a Fox interview with Megyn Kelly to appear on MSNBC and explain the whole thing.

Ronan Farrow isn’t quite the interrogator that Kelly is.

Farrow lobs a softball at Gruber right up front, and Gruber replies, “The comments were made at a conference and I was speaking off the cuff and I spoke inappropriately and I regret having made those comments.”

He regrets being caught telling the truth.
