Well, if the title of this post does not make you want yell and scream and break something, what does it take? I’m not the one that said this. Who did? Oh, you probably never heard this from the media ANYWHERE in 2013. And you probably have not heard it from the mainstream media recently. I wonder why that is? But here it is before you right now. What are you going to do about it?

Jonathan Gruber  is, a professor at MIT, a professor of economics.  He wrote both Romney Care and he wrote the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care.)  In October of 2013, he was in Philadelphia speaking at the 24th Annual Health Economics Conference, and he spoke about the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care) and how and what they had to do to make it a reality.

“This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO (Congressional Budget Office) 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.  In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are gonna’ pay in… If you made it explicit the healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, okay?  Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage.  And basically, you know, call it the stupidity of American voter or whatever. But basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass.”

Annual Health Economics Conference, Philadelphia, PA, October 17, 2013


In defense of the Affordable Care Act (Obama Care), he admits that there are problems with this law, but his last words at the end of his little speech are, repeated twice, “I would rather have this law than not.”

Don’t take my word for this, let his own words and in his own voice speak.


I don’t care how smart Gruber is, thinks he is or how smart anyone else is or think they are! When did it ever become the right thing to do, to get your way (your law passed) by lying about it? Hell, the road to hell is, paved with good intentions. So don’t give me this necessary evil crap, like, we had to lie in order to help you the people.  And remember, the Congress was told to pass the Affordable Care Act bill, in order to, “…find out what’s in it”  – Nancy Pelosi

“I love these members, they get up and say, ‘Read the bill … What good is reading the bill if it’s a thousand pages and you don’t have two days and two lawyers to find out what it means after you read the bill?'”

John Conyers on the Health Care Bill, which he voted for:

When did transparency get renamed as non-transparency? And exactly how far do you think you’re going to continue doing whatever you do, when you call the American voter stupid?

WE the People might be the most generous people in the world (and we are) and patient (and we are, very much) and trusting (or at least we give others the benefit of the doubt, A LOT), but WE are not stupid! WE have been like lambs. It is time to roar as the Lions WE are!

The parties will not! Our founders NEVER mentioned ANY political party when they wrote the Constitution of the United States of America. In the farewell address of George Washington, he warned us about polpars (political parties). Government will not and cannot. Therefore, WE the People need to –
