ObamaCare supporter, journalist Ron Fourier, made one of the most honest statements about Obamacare yet, writing today in the National Journal:
“And so even I have to admit, as a supporter, that Obamacare was built and sold on a foundation of lies.”
Fourier, also called out the boring trick of Lefty so-called journalists who insist on prefacing objections to Obama and his policies as coming only from the Right. Ha.
Here is Fournier on this bullshit trick Democrat journalists use to shield and protect Obama and the Dem Party:
when I read a Washington Post story headlined, "Who Is Jonathan Gruber?" It was an important and workmanlike report on the Obamacare adviser who bragged about the political advantages of deceiving voters, whom Gruber called stupid.
"Those comments have struck a nerve on the right," wrote Jose A. DelReal (emphasis added), "with some of the law's critics pointing to Gruber's comments as evidence that the administration intentionally deceived the American public on the costs of the programs."
My first reaction was, "No! No! Not just on the right!" I strongly support bipartisan efforts to expand the availability of health coverage to the working poor, and bending the cost curve that threatens federal budgets for years to come. While I think President Obama and congressional Democrats helped contribute to the 2009 standoff over what became the Affordable Care Act, I've openly rooted for Obamacare's success. I've denounced the knee-jerk opposition from the GOP, a party that once embraced key elements of Obamacare. My ideology is amorphous; I am not "on the right."
All of that, and yet: Gruber's remarks struck a nerve with me.
And then there is this from the Boston Herald today on the lies of Obamaites about the subsidy issue of Obamacare.
MIT economist Jonathan Gruber’s insulting comments about Obamacare and the “stupidity” of American voters, recorded in 2013 but only widely publicized this week, reinforce the wisdom of the Supreme Court’s decision Friday to take up another challenge to the provisions of the Affordable Care Act.
The case now before the Supreme Court challenges the IRS rule granting subsidies to those who enroll in health plans through the federally-run -exchange, noting that the law limits subsidies to enrollees in exchanges “established by the state.”
That is the plain language of the law, drafted and enacted by Congress and signed by the president. But because only 16 states established exchanges, the White House finds itself arguing, lest the entire scheme collapse. that the law doesn’t mean what it very clearly says it means
More Lies by Obama, pffft. And while the Middle Class struggles as Obamacare has decimated their health care plans and ability to see the best and brightest doc around the county, never fear those on welfare now are getting top notch care, at the expense of the Middle Class, who Obama and Gruber believe to be dupes.
As American Thinker points out in their item
If Obama is as smart as the Left, and Obama keep telling us he is, then perhaps show Americans the Transcript money.
Democratic policy star, Ivy League elitist, and ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber thinks Americans are too stupid to understand the “Cadillac Tax” and much else besides.
Given that Obama decreed that ObamaCare was to be constructed by Gruber, who has said on several occasions (e.g., here) that the people who have been impacted are dumb, shouldn’t Obama, and his Democratic supporters, be willing to demonstrate to the “dummies” just how smart Obama is?
Or should we just take Obama at his word that he cannot manage 8th grade math.
This excellent point, made by Dr. Jason Kissner, associate professor of criminology at California State University, Fresno, and the author of the above American Thinker item, might be translated as such:
Obama is a crafty liar, which may make him quite dangerous to democracy, but he is not, not by a long-shot, a highly intelligent person.
Just ask the workers whose health plans have been canceled by Obamacare and returned to them with limited choices for where and by whom they may receive care, along with higher premiums, and higher deductibles.
