Obamacare Architect: Americans ‘Too Stupid to Understand’

By Curtis Kalin | November 12, 2014 | 9:36am EST

Days before he revealed the multiple deceptions involved with President Obama’s healthcare law, MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, a administration adviser who helped craft the Affordable Care Act, again called the American people “stupid.”

The new video of Gruber comes after he told MSNBC that his first public remarks about “the stupidity of the American voter” were “inappropriate”. But, it seems that was not the only time Gruber called the American public stupid.

“Well that’s pretty much the same thing, why’s it matter? You’ll see. And they were both in and that passed, because the American voter is too stupid to understand the difference.” [Crowd laughter]

The full video of Gruber is from a lecture he gave at WashingtonUniversity in St. Louis in October 2013. Gruber was explaining the political deception involved in Obamacare in taxing so-called “Cadillac” insurance plans.

This second video clearly shows Mr. Gruber did not merely misspeak, he has a pretty clear opinion of the American people and how honest lawmakers should be when passing laws that affect their lives.
