    What he is saying is true, but his explanation is not very good. What is
    happening is that there are people out there who truly need help and better
    care, but the cost is too high for them to be able to afford care for
    themselves, so an umbrella healthcare system that puts everyone on equal
    footing, regardless of financial means or not, everyone pays in to the pool
    and those who need the help get it. Everyone says that they want to end
    world hunger, end poverty, end people dying from cancer and things of the
    same nature. The only way that is ever going to happen is through umbrella
    initiatives that provide services on a broad basis, and those who can
    afford to pay do, and those who can’t afford it have it provided to them at
    lower costs. It’s not pretty but that is the way the game is played, the
    government is for all people not just the rich and yet the rich have
    lobbyists to fight for them but who fights for the poor, well for the first
    time in history the government is truly trying to fight for all people, and
    make things better for everyone, but just like in every other aspect of
    society the rich are fighting back, and instead of understanding it’s for
    the average American’s well being, they are trying to sway everyone to go
    against these umbrella policies, instead of supporting them with the
    knowledge that it is to protect American’s from policies that favor the
    rich and would undermine the securities of the underprivileged.

    If you wonder what modern liberal socialist political leaders think of
    their supporters, watch this video.

    Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber reveals his true beliefs about the
    democrats who accepted Obamacare as a solution for healthcare. His phrase
    “the stupidity of the American voter” obviously refers only to those who
    supported Obamacare – those who tend to vote democrat.

    For those who would like to know more about him, this link to wikipedia
    describes Mr Gruber and his history:

    What an evil dirt bag… not you Gruber, I’m talking about Obama. BTW, the
    stupid American voters are only the ones that voted for Obama. The rest of
    us are wise to Obama’s ways and are not at all surprised by this video. 

  5. Thad Meszaras says:

    Oblamo got elected on the same premise -stupid voters who believed his lies
    and BS. Just look what happened in the mid-term election – the dummies
    stayed away from the polls. I suspect this uninformed voter group simply
    had no idea they could vote.

  6. marc gabourie says:

    This clip should cause such a scandal that Obamacare will be wiped out
    immediately, this architect put in jail, and Obama run out of office.

    Alright Obama supporters, explain this one, have some freaking guts!

    *OBAMA-CARE*
    *”We Had To Lie To Get It Passed”*

    “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says the MIT
    economist who helped write Obamacare. “And basically, call it the stupidity
    of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really
    critical for the thing to pass.”

    The most definitive proof yet that the Affordable Care Act was nothing more
    than a ruse to enable the federal government to take over one-sixth of the
    U.S. economy — by lording over Americans’ healthcare — has just emerged
    in the form of frank admissions by the law’s primary architect, despite his
    and a top university’s efforts to keep it all a secret.

    If you recall, for months before Obamacare’s passage, the president and his
    political allies insisted that the individual mandate — which forced
    Americans, for the first time in our history, to buy a product or service
    — was not a tax. In one of the earliest interviews Obama did on his health
    “reform” proposal, with ABC News’ George Stephanopoulos, the president was
    adamant that the ACA was not a tax.

    Then, when Obamacare reached the U.S. Supreme Court, Chief Justice John
    Roberts literally *rewrote the individual mandate statute to make it a tax*,
    just like the law’s creator wanted it to be (and knew that it was) all
    along.

    There’s more… Gruber also noted that the law’s language had to hide the
    fact that younger Americans were going to be forced to pay for older,
    sicker Americans, through higher premiums (even though younger people —
    many of whom are still paying on expensive school loans and are trying to
    get started in life — can least afford the additional costs and burden).

    “In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy
    people are gonna pay in — if you made it explicit that healthy people are
    going to pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed,”
    Gruber says in the video.

    I have not been around much lately, life has really been busy. I wanted to
    post this because the admission of the craftiness and devious design behind
    #Obamacare Jonatan Guber Obamacare Architect admits to slight of hand.
    Relying on Voter STUPIDITY

    “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the
    mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay,
    so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk rated subsidies, if you had a
    law which said that healthy people are going to pay in – you made explicit
    healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed…
    Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it
    the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was
    really really critical for the thing to pass… Look, I wish Mark was right
    that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than
    not.”

    The guy called all Americans stupid. I wouldn’t be surprised if the bastard
    got lynched.

    anybody else tired of the arrogance of power?

  18. SelectCircle says:

    NOW that we finally know the architect’s name – thank GOD it’s a memorable
    one.

    “G R U B E R” is a name the public can REALLY sink its teeth into – and
    chew on.

    His name might even enter the dictionary: – To be a GRUBER is to get your
    way by LYING.

    Young people in your early 20’s. Take note this is how they duped you into
    paying for the half of America that doesn’t work.

  21. georg cantor says:

    Obama and the Democratic Party using the Fallacy of Ambiguity (“lack of
    transparency”) to lie to the American people. Hitler and Goebbels (from
    the German Workers National Socialist Party) used the same tactic
    during their reign in Nazi Germany. Gruber, a Jew, probably borrowed the
    tactic from them since Gruber knows how effective it was for the Nazis,
    using similar tactics, to herd up all the Jews for extermination.

  22. Ярослав Герасименко says:

    american really stupid – they blame democrats – face palm
    do you undestand that ALL laws like this?

  23. Ricardo Santos says:

    Shows that intelligence does not necessary equals integrity.

    In the past, guys like this ended up hanged. And for good reasons I may ad.

    To all people that call democracy this democracy that. Democracy is just
    government by mob, While a republic is government by law. A democracy
    condemned Socrates to dead for telling the truth. You have all being duped
    so you accept government acting on an unlawful manner. Please stop being
    useful idiots.

    Our once lawful government has being supplanted by a Criminal Organization.
    Their actions are ones of a badly managed mafia who see the people as
    prey. 

  24. Roderick Bateman says:

    Nobody is saying Asians will be a minority in Asia
    Nobody is saying Africans will be a minority in Africa
    They are only saying Whites will be minorities in EVERY White country by
    2040.
    That’s because “anti-racists” only enforce “Diversity” in White countries
    “Anti-racists” want a world without White people
    “Diversity” means chasing down the last white person.

    It’s genocide
    Anti-racist is a codeword for anti-White

  25. TheRemainingFaithful says:

    You know what? As much as I hate to say it, the American People cannot be
    mad at Grueber. Why? Because *THE PEOPLE* are the ones who bought into this
    bullcrap about Obamacare! *THE PEOPLE* are the ones who *LET THEMSELVES BE
    DECEIVED* with their lies. We did not learn from Obama’s first term and
    elected him a second time! As much as it pissed me off, if this guy is
    calling American voters stupid, it’s because he earned the right to do so.

    It’s like the old saying goes. “Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice,
    shame on me.”
