Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber: 'Pharma is going to be a huge winner from this bill'

MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, a key architect of Obamacare, testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, Tuesday, Dec. 9, 2014, before the House Oversight Committee health care hearing. (AP Photo/Molly Riley) ** FILE **"I understand that some will try to delay action until the special interests can kill it," President Obama said from the Rose Garden in late July 2009, warning that these opponents "would maintain a system that works for the insurance and the drug companies, while becoming increasingly unaffordable for families and for businesses."

This was hogwash. A couple of months later, as the Wall Street Journal reports now, Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber wrote top White House health official: "Pharma is going to be a huge winner from this bill — maybe $15 billion/year in incremental revenue." Gruber then asked, "Any way to go after them harder for financing?"

Gruber may not have been aware that Democratic officials had already "go[ne] after" pharma for financing — financing of the reelections of the Democratic senators who support Obamacare.

When honesty and integrity are fleeting ideals society will suffer. There must be consequences for all the lies and deceptions.

Obamacare  as it is call is not affordable unconstitutional  and  full of taxes and most of all unfair

Grubber is the gift that keeps giving. He lays out how the Dems. have screwed the people.

   Too bad only half the country cares, the other half says ,We want Hillary, We want more.

One of the most fraudulent if not the most fraudulent law ever passed and foisted on the American people and as usual the poor people will suffer again, this bill will not help them much, just make them slaves to the Government and unable to oppose all these political tricks.

This is it in a nutshell-----GOVERNMENTAL CONTROL!

Obama peddles it to the destitute and they say we have nothing so he's giving us something. they are all for Obama care but its the beginning steps to enslavement by the government. SO the poor see Obama as a god, while the remainder see his oppressive games to lower American standards by shutting down parts of our economy because he believes in U. N. AGENDA 21 is the program to rule America AND AMERICANS ARE TOO IGNORANT TO SEE THROUGH IT and know this is the truth. We need to get rid of Obama IMPEACH HIM FOR CRIMES IN BENGHAZI and then resign from any part of United Nations AGENDA 21, it is destroying Americas progress  to a healthy economy.

Dictator Obama Care has nothing to do with health care.

It is an amazement to me that Jonathan Gruber has not had the crap beaten out of him by now! He walks around as one of Obama's henchmen and he acts like he's made of Teflon--Mr untouchable!

He boldly proclaims what his part in Obama Care was, and acts proud of it!

Obama Care is a mechanism to destroy our economy, not help people. The whole thing was worked on before Obama ever got elected and once in he steps up with this manifesto of 3000 pages and tells America this is what we need. Communism at its best!

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …


DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
