White House on Gruber comments: 'Simply not true'

The White House is denouncing comments from key Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber that a lack of transparency and the stupidity of voters helped in the passage of the health care law.

“Not only do we disagree with those comments, they’re simply not true,” White House spokeswoman Jessica Santillo said in a statement late Wednesday, according to Talking Points Memo.

“Transparency is a key goal of the [Affordable Care Act]: consumers now have more access to information about their health insurance than ever before,” she added, nothing that Obamacare was publicly debated for 14 months and pointed to dozens of hearings on the Hill as well as “countless town halls, speeches, and debates.”

“The tax credits in the law that help millions of middle class Americans afford coverage were no secret, and in fact were central to the legislation,” Santillo said.

Gruber has been causing headaches for the White House as conservatives have had a field day over comments the MIT professor made in 2013 after videos recently surfaced of his remarks.

“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 at the time.

expected diatribe...  they should be a bit more cautious right now with their WH statements that end only giving the public an "either or" translation of.  So if what Santillo represents to be the WH's current position  on the multiple Gruber open mouth, insert foot remarks is so, then the WH and all who helped in the Obamacare catastrophe are just idiots?  Back to when being debated:  they were already informed the whole plan was situated by them to be nothing more than a total failure.

Idiots shouldn't be running the United States anymore than criminals should be; makes no difference - idiot or liar - ignorance is not a valid defense when committing crimes.

They paid this JACKASS 400K for his work on this Crap..

Then of course they have to deny it and keep lying.  

Oh, but did we not just elect additional troops to reinforce those in Congress?

BS is going to get his now. You just wait. This tax will be repealed, in entirety. BS will be held accountable for all his lawlessness and two stepping on the constitution. Yeah, buddie. Santa Clause  is coming at last. You'll see.

Dale, I hope that is more than a gut feeling you have. Many would love to see that. 

If it were only true.

Wait till the illegals get their Obamacare. More government jobs for interpreters.

More Democratic Voters...........SS Cards, I.D's, the whole Enchilada, just get them to the Polls in 2016.  Adios!  Republican Party.

Major lies, really major!!


It seems, that Goober is the only one, now telling the truth ! At least for a brief moment.

If the White House is adamant that Gruber is lying, then we know he has to be telling the truth.  The Obama regime does not know the meaning of truth.  I believe everyone in Obama's close commie regime is required to take a lie detector test before joining the team - if at anytime the individual being administered the test is caught in a truth, they are immediately disqualified from working on Obama's team.

Obama Lies Again: – Ignores That The Year After Signing The Stimulus More Than (4) Million Jobs Were Lost

Former President Obama, the only President in US history who had his FBI and other Intel agencies spy on the opposition party candidate, claims that he created the great economy that Americans are enjoying today. The only thing Obama created was debt and massive job losses with his horrible economic recovery.

Yesterday the former President tweeted an effort to take credit for President Trump’s successful economy:

Joe Hoft@joehoft

Of course another @BarackObama lie. He can’t open his mouth without lying. 11 years ago the US lost (4.3) million jobs over the next 12 months. Horrible liar. https://twitter.com/barackobama/status/1229432034650722304 

Barack Obama  @BarackObama

Eleven years ago today, near the bottom of the worst recession in generations, I signed the Recovery Act, paving the way for more than a decade of economic growth and the longest streak of job creation in American history.

President Obama’s policies were a disgrace and a failure. He doubled the national debt in spite of zero interest rates from the Fed. His recovery was the worst in US history.

Also, Obama’s assertion is just plain false. The ‘Stimulus’ was passed in February 2009 right after Obama took over the Presidency. He promised to not pass any bills for at least a week to allow for the bills to be read by the people but lied as soon as he was sworn in. The Stimulus was hundreds and hundreds of pages of government handouts to Democrat districts and it was close to $1 million. This was not what America needed and it led to the Tea Party.

Far-left Wikipedia has this to say about the Stimulus:

Note that in his infinite wisdom, NYT economist Paul Krugman is credited with arguing that “the stimulus was far smaller than the economic crisis warranted”. (He also said the markets would crash and burn if President Trump was elected President.)

The data shows that the 12 months after Obama’s stimulus, the US lost 4.3 million jobs:

In Obama’s first three years he netted a loss of 1.5 million jobs compared to President Trump who has added more than 6.7 million jobs.

When it comes to the economy, the billionaire schools the community organizer every time.
