Obama Adviser Jonathan Gruber In 2009: Obamacare Will NOT Be Affordable

Obamacare consultant Jonathan Gruber (R) listens to Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner during testimony before a U.S. House Oversight and Government Reform hearing on “Examining Obama Transparency Failures” in Washington December 9, 2014. Gruber apologized on Tuesday for his recent remarks about “the stupidity of the American voter,” telling a congressional committee he did not think President Barack Obama’s signature healthcare law was passed in a deceptive manner.

President Obama’s health care adviser Jonathan Gruber said that the Affordable Care Act would definitely not be affordable while he was writing the bill with the White House.

As Gruber continues to withhold documents while he awaits a call-back for more testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the new year, more shocking information is coming to light detailing the deceptions that went into the writing of the health-care law.

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.
