On Saturday night’s Justice with Judge Jeanine Pirro, the Fox host let-er-rip against Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber for bragging about the deceptions used to pass ObamaCare and insulting the intelligence of the American people.
“They think you’re stupid, that they can pull the wool over your eyes. They know more than you do. And that they know what’s good for you and it’s best to simply keep you in the dark. So, why lie to the American people? And make no mistake, we were lied to. Starting with ‘you can keep your health care plan and your doctor,’ to ‘this isn’t a tax, it’s just a penalty’” she said.
In reaction to the White House’s attempt to distance itself from Gruber, Pirro pointed out that “records confirm that Gruber spent time at the White House and Gruber himself says he met with the president twice, including in the Oval Office to discuss the law. Hey, Gruber, Americans aren’t stupid. We knew all along that Obamacare was nothing more than an attempt to socialize medicine and tax us to pay for this redistribution of wealth.”
She declared, “if they think that we can’t see that this is simply a transfer of wealth from those who have insurance to those who don’t, from the young and healthy to those who are old and sick, a transfer of wealth from legals to illegals, then they’re the ones who are stupid.”
“Yes, we were right all along,” she said triumphantly. “We never liked ObamaCare from the get-go. True costs were hidden in a 1,700 page bill that we would only understand once it was passed.”
She concluded her opening statement by having some fun with Nancy Pelosi.
Her first guest was noted healthcare expert Avik Roy of Forbes and National Review. He said none of the Obama administration’s promises ever made any sense and most people figured that out.
He said that there’s absolutely no doubt that Jonathan Gruber was the central figure in the crafting of the bill.
Pirro’s next guest former NY Lt Governor and health care expert Betsy McCaughey came on lugging her dogeared copy of the ObamaCare law with her. “I am committed to repealing that law. Never mind what Avik Roy says,” she declared. “Those who say we can reform this law within the framework of this law, hasn’t read this law. It is rotten to the core.”
She predicted that the the Halbig decision (which is expected next summer) will be the end of the law because “four out of five people who sign up for this law get a subsidy.” She continued, “the subsidies are so big compared with the price, once the Supreme Court rules, their going to see the actual price of these ObamaCare “affordable” plans and it’s going to be 400% higher than it currently is.”
She predicted that “the exchange period that started today – it’s going to be the last one in history.”
From her lips to God’s ears.
