It didn’t take long for bloggers to get their hands on ObamaCare
architect, advisor, consultant, some random guy named Jonathan Gruber’s comic book explaining ObamaCare, (written in simple language so ordinary, stupid Americans can understand it.)
Charles C. Johnson has a good write-up at Got News.
In 2012 Jonathan Gruber designed and published a propagandistic comic book to sell Obamacare to the stupid American voters, Gotnews.com has learned.
While Gruber has said that the stupidity of the American voter was a political asset in passing Obamacare, Gruber nonetheless worked with left-wing groups to explain how the law worked.
Get a load of this:
Peter Suderman of Reason was one of the few bloggers who wrote about the book back in 2012, when it was released.
Health care is a giant fat person crushing Congress. Or at least that’s the picture readers get—quite literally—from reading Jonathan Gruber’s Health Care Reform: What It Is, Why It’s Necessary, How It Works, a desperate attempt to make the case for ObamaCare in graphic novel form.
Gruber, an economist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, served as a chief architect of Mitt Romney’s Massachusetts health care reform, which provided the model for the 2010 Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA). He then worked as a paid consultant for the widely unpopular federal law. Gruber plays a central role in his own book, appearing as a nerdy-looking cartoon character who guides readers through an illustrated version of federal health policy basics with exciting lines like “the best and most comprehensive parts of the ACA are yet to come.”
Why deploy cartoon Gruber to battle cartoon villains such as a mummy who warns that ObamaCare won’t cover the uninsured and a lagoon creature who tries to scare people into thinking the law will cause insurance premiums to rise? Perhaps because at this point the law’s defenders are desperate enough to try anything to make it more popular. This is a far cry from the run-up to PPACA’s passage, when Democratic strategists convinced themselves that sagging public support would be turned around once people finally understood the law’s benefits.
Note that Gruber was still peddling the 2013 lie of the year to gullible Americans in his 2012 comic book:
Gruber collaborated with the Obama-centric Center for American Progress to produce this video using his work and comic books to sell Obamacare.
