Dr. Jonathan Gruber, an economics professor at MIT, served as a consultant for the White House during the creation of the Affordable Care Act. He also thinks ACA was passed thanks to the stupidity of the American people. Video of Gruber bashing Americans has recently been scrutinized and has been receiving heavy media coverage.
We can’t blame the Obama Camp from wanting to distance themselves from this guy. They used him for his brain and now he is putting them in a hole.
When Nancy Pelosi was asked about Dr. Gruber, she responded,
“I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill.”
Come on, Nancy. Nobody is buying that. The Washing Post has proof you know who he is, and the White House paid him $400,000 for his consulting services while formulating Obamacare.
Let’s bring in Axelrod with the dagger:
“As one who worked hard to make ACA and its benefits clear, let me say: if you looked up ‘stupid’ in dictionary, you’d find Gruber’s picture.”
Ok fine we know who he is, but he’s an idiot!
