Awesome. I wonder if those who actually passed the bill understood it either… after all, it has been suggested that some in congress may not have read the thing!
According to a CNN article (and video):
With a fourth video released, Gruber-gate is now in full swing.
The latest caught-on-tape remarks from economist Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of the Affordable Care Act, has him asserting back in 2010 that the “American public” — that’s you and me — “doesn’t actually care that much about the uninsured.” He thinks he knows us so well.
In another video released earlier, he said that to pass new health care legislation, the Obama administration successfully relied on an electorate — again, you and me — that didn’t really understand it.
“It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter,” he tells the Honors Colloquium 2012 at the University of Rhode Island.
Thanks for the vote of confidence there, Gruber, really appreciate it.
