Washington DC (Storch Report) — Yes, President Obama lied because he believed the American people were stupid, while he touted transparency, he knew the lack of it would keep the people in a place that would allow him to ram through his signature legislation called Obamacare which is now unraveling as a sham much like many of the other policies of this administration over the past six years.
The architect of Obamacare, Jonathan Gruber, an MIT professor, said on three different video taped occasions the Obamacare bill “was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes.”
He said, “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” adding “basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but that was really critical to getting the thing to pass.”
The genius of the American progressive movement is an academic culture from which Gruber comes and this very culture has now conclusively undermined President Obama’s credibility, oh, but once again.
It is important to note that this story is a journalistic bombshell, yet the liberal mainstream media has not reported on the story but for one outlet, CBS and that story appeared today.
It is clear that the mainstream liberal media is continuing to tank for the Obama administration, despite its obvious failures.
But that will change when the Republican controlled Congress of 2015 holds hearing after hearing with Gruber’s testimony on the basis of his very own damaging video tapes.
This will lead to legislation that will be on the President’s desk decimating Obamacare, which the President will obviously veto. But that in its self will send a message to the ‘stupid’ American public which will not be helpful to the 2016 presidential campaign for the Dems.
Obamacare’s ultimate goal is to move everyone into Medicare for a controlled healthcare system by the State.
The GOP strategy should be to give the Dems enough rope to hang themselves. The odds are against them. Do not make any moves from a budget standpoint to shut down the government. Secondly, do not approve any executive appointments unless the planned executive order on immigration threatened by Obama is withdrawn. And, proceed with Obamacare hearings early in 2015.
Obama is between a rock and a hard place.
