Because you are too stupid to know what’s good for you, Barack H. Obama brought this guy on board and had him deliberately fool you into thinking ObamaCare was a good idea.
Almost nobody was fooled, and everybody who wasn’t sucking at the hind-end welfare teat knew something was fishy. But it worked anyway, because Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid controlled both houses of Congress.
So, right out of the box it cost more, didn’t include services you needed, and provided others you neither needed nor wanted; the deductibles were outrageous, and you couldn’t keep your doctor or hospital like Barry the Magnificent promised you could.
Meet Jonathan Gruber, a professor at MIT and an architect of Obamacare. …
“You can’t do it political, you just literally cannot do it. Transparent financing and also transparent spending. I mean, 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,” Gruber said. “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 to get 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.” [read it all here]
So there it is. Jonathan Gruber would rather have this law than not. Barack Obama agreed, and you were too stupid to see it coming.
Suck it up, dipstick.
You’ll pay for it, and you’ll like it.
You may have called him Goober in high school, but look at who’s getting even now.
