One of the most preeminent concepts behind Marxism is, that the average person is far to stupid to be allowed to decide anything relevant about how their nation, or even their own life is run. Tragically, regardless of how many time the democrats prove that they are Marxists, the American people by and large refuse to believe that that is what they are. It’s not that the American people are stupid, it’s just that they cannot believe that the Democrat Party would betray the United States Constitution and wholeheartedly embrace a political ideology that has so thoroughly been proven not to work.
Here is another one of those examples of the Democrat Party saying right out in the open that they believe that the American people are too stupid to govern themselves, and therefore need to be deceived in order for a program that, according to the Marxist Democrats, Americas simply cannot live without.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor later admitted that the law was designed in a deceptive manner in order to prompt the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office to score it in a manner conducive to passage. “This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes,” Gruber said. “If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies.”
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” he added, essentially endorsing the opaque practices used by Democratic legislators to create and pass the behemoth health care reform bill. If it sounds like he’s congratulating himself and his fellow Democrats for pulling one over on the American people, you’re not imagining things.
“Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass,” Gruber went on to say.
In short, what Jon Gruber is saying is, the only way we could get Obamacare passed, was to flat out lie about it. While bad enough in and of itself, Gruber added insult to injury by asserting that it was the fault of the American people that they are so damned stupid that we had to lie to them to get Obamacare passed.
What Gruber is conveniently not reminding people of, is that the American voters did not approve of Obamacare, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi used the most deceitful political tactics conceivable to get Obamacare passed. They took a completely unrelated Bill passed by the house, removed everything in it, put Obamacare in it, then passed in in the middle of the night using a parliamentary procedure known as reconciliation.
At the time of it’s passage, 70 percent of the American people opposed Obamacare. It was so opposed by the American people that elected Democrats had to shut down their phone lines and lock their constitutes out of town-hall meetings just to avoid hearing what their constitutes thought of Obamacare. More importantly, and a lesson obviously lost on the Democrat leadership, (or perhaps they just didn’t care) when the 2010 mid-terms came around, the Democrats suffered the worst political defeat in the nations history, well, at least the worst political beating in American history until the 2014 mid-terms, when they once again suffered the worst political defeat in American political history.
Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor Jon Gruber should perhaps be the face of the democrat party, the party that knowingly and willingly lies to it’s constitutes because they honestly believe that you are to stupid to make the right decision, and then, once they have lied to you, rather than admitting that they lied, blame you for your being to stupid to vote correctly.
That’s right folks, the official party line of the Democrat Party is now, “Call it the stupidity of the American voter” or, Yea, you’re Stupid America.
