Jonathan Gruber has become the “face” of the debacle of Obamacare since he has been identified as its author. Unlike Edward Snowden, who exposed the extent and depth of NSA spying and became the “gift that keeps on giving,” Gruber has become the “nightmare on health care mandate” as more and more information surfaces that proves what a sham this unconstitutional law is.
In 2009, Jonathan Gruber stated the Affordable Care Act (ACA) or Obamacare would not be affordable when he was writing that bill in conjunction with the White House. Continuing to withhold documents, Gruber is awaiting a call back in order to continue testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. However, new information has surfaced indicating that Gruber himself indicated that Obamacare would not be affordable and had no cost controls as evidenced in an October 2009 policy briefing. It has already been established that Gruber counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on the Presidential Transition Team. So, while Obama claimed to the public their premiums would go down, he knew for a fact the premiums would not.
Gruber admitted in the 2009 briefing that “you can’t mandate insurance that’s not affordable” and that it would be a major issue.
In his brief, Gruber contended:
So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million people hostage to the fact that we don’t know yet how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.
So, as every American should be able to discern, government has played politics with your health through the health care insurance mandate.
Gruber’s idea of cost control is – you guessed it – effectively denying treatments.
