It’s nice to see progressives attempt to step out of the closet and pretend to be transparent.
Perhaps the Gruber was asleep when Obama’s Health Care Denial and Rationing program was rammed through the Democrat held house and Senate behind closed doors, in the dead of night by those who voted on it but never read it.
Perhaps MIT Economist, Joathan Gruber, doesn’t see the Republican land side on Tuesday November 4th as a complete repudiation of Obama and his socialist policy, not to mention his equally failed foreign policy.

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber helped to craft the dreaded law known as Obamacare. Video of Gruber talking about how the law was passed has surfaced. In the video he explained how the law only passed because there was a lack of transparency in the process. Oh, and voters are stupid.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” says the MIT economist who helped write Obamacare. “And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”
He also said the 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.”
He also doesn’t regret the lack of transparency, because he’s “rather have this law” than have lawmakers be honest with the American people.
