Jonathan Gruber 2013: “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO 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.”

He said that not only is it OK but it’s ethical to deceive the American people into supporting something they would otherwise suppose. If they are not intelligent enough to support what what we know is best for them, or understand the deception, then it’s their fault.

When did CBO get the right facts and figures?

What was government’s attitude toward public policy?
Not a smidgen of corruption at the IRS.
We did not touch the Benghazi talking points.
Lower health care costs and keeping your physician. …

7M are currently signed for ObamaCare
13M predicted after next year yet hoping for 9M
40M uninsured before ObamaCare began
Destroyed the entire system to insure the 40M uninsured
How many of the previously privately insured are now uninsured?

Today people are receiving subsidies from states which are not participating in the exchange program. What will the Supreme Court decide when they hear this next year? They are taking it before it has been heard by the appellate.
