Rep. Trey Gowdy is calling on President Obama to "repudiate" Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber after video emerged of Gruber describing how the "stupidity of the American voter" helped get the healthcare law passed through Congress.
The South Carolina Republican, in an interview with Fox News' Megyn Kelly on Tuesday, said he "can't even get past the irony to get to the arrogance" of the "most transparent administration since the continents shifted [having] to rely on artifice and deception to pass its signature piece of legislation."
"You can't make that up," Gowdy said. "He had to lie to people, and then he justified it, so I can't even get past the irony of that to even get to the arrogance of him calling our fellow citizens stupid."
Video footage from 2013 surfaced last week of Gruber saying Obamacare passed due to "lack of transparency" and the "stupidity of the American voter." Gruber quickly apologized for the statements.
After Kelly described the video as a "smoking gun," Gowdy continued: "It's really serious in a participatory democracy when you tell your fellow citizens that you're either not smart enough to understand the truth or we can't tell you the truth because you wouldn't go along with it. Well, if you wouldn't go along with it, maybe you shouldn't pass the law."
This is like trying to force an unrepentant person to apologize. What's the point?
The point we all should know by now,,, our corrupt Marxist Liberal media that 30% still are stupid enough to believe!
Well in a sense the guy is right. Look how many people, who thought they were conscientious Americans, voted for the rudderless charlatan and his fake man/wife and his 2 fake daughters in 2008...brainwashed into believing they were somehow balancing the scales by crowning "the first black president", "making history" and so on. What kind of schmuck do you have to be to fall for that? Also shows like "Cops" admitted they inserted an anti-white male bias into their show leading up to that election. That admission didn't hurt them much as the show continues. We saw the the same thing in sports as the black man was given higher status along with TV commercials, etc. Since about 2/3rds of the country was tuning into the likes of ABC,NBC, CBS, CNN back then and getting their minds programmed to accept this...why wouldn't they go for pushing Obamacare thru? These people behind Obama know what they are doing. Thankfully many have woken up since then and the 2014 midterms showed hope many will continue.
well said. thank you.
Well said! The people voting for Obama , did so because he is Black. The ones who wanted free medical care THOUGHT obamacare is FREE! This shows the man is absolutely right on: there are many stupid Americans and if it was NOT for the rest of us, this country would have been gone on 1960's!! This Country survived on FAITH in God and Jesus Christ. Today too many have taken GOD out of everything! They are NOT simply separating "Church and State", THEY are NOT Believers and detest FAITH IN GOD! Islam is ok! IT IS NOT GOD THE FATHER and the HOLY TRINITY!!! They ARE COMMUNISTS! THEY think We all should have to abide by one child's objection to a mural on a school wall, one atheists or agnostic's views or ONE WORLD ORDER!! Communism is OK, Islam is OK, ANY thing BUT GOD! Well GOD has the say on that!
PRAY AMERICA, PRAY!
since B.O told us if we don't like his policy, go out and win an election, We did, and then we find the tapes of how his health care was passed with lies and deceptions, and still this spoiled child, digs his heels in and tells the american public that he is so smart and so good that the only problem was he couldn't message his lies correctly.
Must be that raised in indonesia stuff, or raised by communists that never loved this country, or maybe it was the choom clouds that have addled his brain.
But the people spoke and they said, we don't want what the B.O. is selling, he is wrong for the time, time for the office and wrong for the people.

Sadly, Gruber is correct.
Did you see how 'smart' justice Roberts was when ruling on barryscare and how he rewrote (unconstitutional) the bill and put the word tax in it.
A major public stupid attack.
Kathleen, there was a news story written about Justice Roberts having illegally adopted 2 children thru countries like Ireland/Scotland and the wrong people found out about it...as they always do...and that this was probably used as leverage against him. Judges breaking the law is common but they don't like it aired. Of course we find this out after the damage is done. Here are a few for you:
Indeed. However Justice Roberts was correct when he said the obamacare bill is a TAX! That bill is full of taxes. The insurances companies were lied to by Obama when he promised them "kick backs" to insure the uninsurable. The insurance companies do check one's CREDIT REPORT before issuing insurance. If Obama counted on the young and healthy to foot the bill, apparently he is one of the STUPID AMERICANS! No YOUNG person will have the credit rating to get insurance approval. NO uninsured or non insured will have the credit rating to get insurance. Seems that MR. Obama has no sense at all! He has NO idea how this country works or is intended to work. Just because he supposedly taught US Constitution in a classroom setting, apparently he does not know how to interpret the US Constitution. I think it is all coming to light: Obama is STUPID! By the way; this also means the Congress is following a very stupid and dangerous idiot in WH! ONE THE CHOSE to inhabit the WH. Obama is simply a token Black man and GOD only knows why or how they slipped this one in! Looks like the members of Congress would be smarter as a whole than all the STUPID Americans!
