This one’s a bombshell, folks.
Gruber said that Obamacare had no cost controls in it and would not be affordable in an October 2009 policy brief, presented here exclusively by TheDC. At the time, Gruber had already personally counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on Obama’s presidential transition team. Obama, meanwhile, told the American people that their premiums would go down dramatically.
“The problem is it starts to go hand in hand with the mandate; you can’t mandate insurance that’s not affordable. This is going to be a major issue,” Gruber admitted in an October 2, 2009 lecture, the transcript of which comprised the policy brief.
“The real substance of cost control is all about a single thing: telling patients they can’t have something they want. It’s about telling patients, ‘That surgery doesn’t do any good, so if you want it you have to pay the full cost.’”
That last sentence is called “Death Panels”. If I had a nickel for every time some Left Wing douchebag in the media proudly called Sarah Palin a “dumb cunt” (both literally and figuratively) for claiming that death panels are a logical consequence of Obama Care, I’d be a fucking millionaire.
Sarah isn’t dumb, and she says some pretty fucking smart things that are critical of both parties. In this case, she has a basic understanding of control-side economics (something at least half of the country doesn’t have a fucking clue about) and could see the obvious consequence of this horrific legislation. All the while, the great Bi-Racial Hope lied through his pearly white teeth.
