Democrats throw Gruber under the bus

M.I.T. Professor Jonathan Gruber has had a rough go in the last couple of weeks.  This video offers a quick refresher of the outrageous things the architect of obamacare">Obamacare has said about the law, the process used to create it, the voters who were duped into believing it would work and how if we would just be patient, everything would turn out great.

Needless to say, Gruber quickly became toxic -- so bad, in fact, that democrats">Democrats wasted little time in tossing him over the side:

“MIT professor Jonathan Gruber was an intellectual architect of Obamacare,” CBS reporter Wyatt Andrews said. “But here at a conference last year, he said the law was written to hide crucial details from an American public too dumb to understand.”

Andrews noted that “embarrassed” Democrats “quickly distanced themselves from Gruber.” Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) “turned Gruber into a stranger,” while the White House claimed he never worked there.

“But when the bill was being written, the administration paid Gruber almost $400,000 for technical advice on drafting the law,” Andrew said.

So don't feel too bad for Mr. Gruber. He was paid very well for doing the Democrats' bidding on Obamacare. His real sin was telling the truth about how the process worked. Inside the Beltway, such honesty is unforgivable (especially when it's on tape).  

And as for congressional Democrats..."disappearing" Gruber won't work.  With each new video of him saying something disturbingly and disgustingly true about Obamacare, the worse their predicament becomes. After all, Gruber could only put the ideas down on paper. They actually voted for it.
