Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of Obamacare, was back defending the dreadful law to Tucker Carlson on Fox News Wednesday night.
Gruber insists that there’s too much “misinformation” surrounding the law and the American public is essentially upset over nothing.
"Americans just don’t understand what this law has done for them,” he said.
Gruber also praised the law for helping the less fortunate even though it hurt the youngest and wealthiest among us and then dropped this gem:
"Everyone agrees that ObamaCare has increased insurance coverage in America. This law was never supposed to help everybody."
That’s not the way it was sold to the American people.
By complaining about the “small amount” of people who oppose the law and the so-called limited examples of horror stories, Gruber told Carlson, “You vilified the major accomplishments of the law.”
In October last year, Gruber told CNN that the law was “working as designed.” He didn’t see any real problems with the law, and obviously doesn’t now, either, but has stated on multiple occasions that the mandate penalties need to be stiffer. Easy for him to say — the man who thinks Americans are “stupid.”
With Trump in office, Republicans hope to have Obamacare repealed by spring.
