Hey Professor Gruber: Who’s stupid now?
Via Boston Herald.
MIT economics professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said that any healthcare replacement law the GOP has in store is a “scam.”
“Any replace[ment] that they would pass would result in millions of Americans losing health insurance, would result in higher premiums, and would result in a huge redistribution from the poor to the rich,” Gruber said on Boston Herald Radio’s “Herald Drive” show with John Sapochetti and Rick Shaffer. “Now if they are happy with that and they are willing to do that, I wouldn’t call that a replacement, I would call that a scam.”
Gruber has stirred up controversy on a number of occasions after videos surfaced of him calling the American public “stupid” for allowing the Affordable Care Act to pass in the first place while being the public face of the legislation….
But he still defends Obamacare, and still blames us for its failure:
….Gruber explained, “The law – honestly – has never been given a fair chance. I know I am a supporter and I know that sounds whiny, but look, the law never really had a fair chance to succeed because the minute it passed there was massive opposition to it even being implemented.”
