Marc Thiessen, former speechwriter for George W. Bush, was on “The Kelly File” to discuss the newly surfaced video where ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber reveals that a “lack of transparency” helped pass the health care law.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass,” Gruber said in the video.
“If it takes lying to us to get what they want done, they’re willing to do it,” Thiessen said.
Thiessen described Gruber as so condescending that “he actually wrote a comic book to explain ObamaCare because of course we’re not smart enough to read chapter books.” Thiessen noted that the book describes the individual mandate as “the spinach we have to eat in order to get the dessert that is fairly priced health insurance. “
Megyn Kelly said that she invited Gruber back on the show to defend himself tonight, but he said he wasn’t interested.
“You know what? We’re no longer interested in you, Mr. Gruber, and 28 Democrats who voted for that health care law just got fired by the American people because eventually they realized they had been lied to […] one by one, the misrepresentations have come out and the American people have had their say."
