I’m taping Trifecta and will miss the live testimony, but here’s part of a pre-release from the House GOP caucus:
By now we’ve all seen the numerous videos of Jonathan Gruber admitting to deliberately deceiving the American people in order to get the President’s healthcare law passed. In his own words, he “relied on the stupidity of the American voter.” Make no mistake- Gruber’s remarks were not a slip of the tongue. He echoed the same sentiments on half a dozen occasions, to numerous different audiences. In a half-hearted mea culpa, he offered what could barely be described as an apology saying he had “spoken off the cuff” and “regretted those comments.” Yet more videos continued to surface of him echoing the same sentiments.
Gruber’s confession raises an important question: Did Gruber also deceive House and Senate Democrats into passing the Affordable Care Act, or were they complicit in deceiving the American people?
Ignorance of the bill is no excuse — of course they were complicit.
