MIT Professor and chief ObamaCare architect, Jonathan Gruber, has been captured on video tape, twice, bragging that he purposely deceived “stupid Americans”, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and all Democrats, in order to enact Barack Obama’s “legacy” healthcare legislation.
Professor Gruber has also been captured on tape, explaining how states that decide NOT to establish state-run healthcare exchanges would suffer financial harm by not being eligible to receive federal healthcare subsidies. This “smoking gun”, 2012 Gruber videotape is damning evidence that exposes the current administration/media lie that only a “typo” in the current ObamaCare law is preventing the federal government from issuing federal subsidies to the 36 states that elected not to create state healthcare exchanges.
The plain language of the ObamaCare legislation, as explained passionately by Professor Gruber, expressly forbids federal subsidies being issued to federally managed healthcare exchanges. Period.
Soon, the Supreme Court must issue a ruling on the legality of federal subsidies being issued to the 36 federally created healthcare exchanges. Before issuing this critical legal ruling, surely the Supremes will review the publicly available video tapes of the ObamaCare architect, strenuously arguing that the 36 federal healthcare exchanges being operated in various states are ineligible to receive federal healthcare subsidies. By design. The Supreme Court must choose to “double down” on Jonathan Gruber’s admitted ObamaCare fraud or issue a ruling that effectively ends ObamaCare. There is no third option.
If the Supremes uphold ObamaCare by validating the Obama administration’s “typo” excuse, their fraudulent ruling will surely lead to a citizen revolt. The mainstream network media, namely ABC, CBS, NBC and CNN, have refused to give even a single minute of coverage to the damning ObamaCare video evidence that has recently surfaced. Apparently, network executives and cable media dinosaurs have adopted the Hillary Clinton mantra of, “What difference, at this point, does it make?”
Obviously, Barack Obama, the mainstream media, 100% of the Democrat Party that voted to enact ObamaCare, and far too many Republicans believe Americans are too stupid to understand ObamaCare.
We the people will have the last laugh.
