ObamaCare Architect: GOP Health Care Plan a 'Middle Finger' to Democracy
Remember when ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber said the "stupidity of the American voter" helped the Affordable Care Act become law, and the "lack of transparency" in the way it was crafted was critical?
"Basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass," he said.
Gruber, however, is now taking issue with the way Senate Republicans crafted their health care bill behind closed doors.
"This is a middle finger to representative democracy," Gruber said on CNN on Thursday.
On "Your World" today, Carrie Sheffield pointed out that passing a bill with a "lack of transparency" isn't exactly representative democracy, either.
"This is par for the course for liberal elitism that's totally out of touch," Sheffield said.
She added that if Gruber and his fellow Democrats want to keep losing elections - as Jon Ossoff just did in Georgia - then they should keep talking like this.
"This is utter hypocrisy," she said.
