Finding out who wrote it: A third video of Obamacare’s architect, Jonathan Gruber, has been discovered in which he bluntly insults the American public.

“It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” Gruber, an economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, said during a speech at the University of Rhode Island in November 2012. He was discussing what is known as the Cadillac tax and how it came into being.

Video has also been found where Gruber saying, “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 to get the thing to pass.” Other video shows him saying “the American people are too stupid to understand the difference” between various components of Obamacare.

    Were voters exploited? Yes, they were lied to but the people who passed this bill were not the voters, they were congressional Democrats. Did Democrats know what they were voting on, were they in on the fraud? Without a doubt some of them were but the bill wasn’t written just to confuse voters, it was written to confuse the congress that passed it.

    This does not excuse congressional Democrats, far from it. They have defended Obamacare long after it was known to be passed through fraud. But it is not the fault of the American voter that Obamacare passed. It was Democrat party leaders that took advantage of the stupidity of their people in congress to pass the ACA and who lied to their own base about it to get re-elected in 2012.

    Democrats were the only ones that had to be convinced, not a single republican voted for that 2700 page turd.
