Last night, Tucker Carlson interviewed Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber.
He’s the guy who famously said Obamacare was able to pass thanks to the stupidity of the American voter.
Carlson raked Gruber over the coals for how things have worked out so far.
The FOX News Insider reported:
ObamaCare Architect: ‘Americans Don’t Understand What It Has Done for Them’
On Wednesday, Tucker Carlson debated Massachusetts Institute of Technology Professor Jonathan Gruber, often considered one of the “architects” of ObamaCare, on the merits of the law and why Republicans want it repealed.
Carlson said that 20 percent of those on the insurance exchanges only have one coverage option, and listed a few criticisms that Americans have of the law.
“There’s been a lot of misinformation,” Gruber said, adding that some costs increases have been slower than before the law was passed.
“Americans just don’t understand what this law has done for them,” he said.
Gruber said that the richest Americans and the youngest and healthiest may have indeed been hurt by the law, but the fact they often must pay more for healthcare has helped others who are less fortunate.
Watch the video:
From the video (at the 6:15 mark):
Tucker: “I assumed you were an expert on this, but I live in DC and I know the people who got rich on those so-called ‘trivial additions.’ You can smirk all you want, but a lot of these things were added by lobbyists for companies wound up getting rich.”
Tucker is right!
Gruber thinks Americans don’t know that companies got rich.
Gruber still thinks Americans are stupid!

@TuckerCarlson our premium is $5000 a year. Wife and I both have around $6 or 7k each deductible. We make $50k a year. Robbery.

Thank goodness Trump is going to reverse this.
Elections have consequences!
