When Gruber says “the American voters are too stupid to understand the difference,” he’s saying the Obama Administration was able to deceive the American public – lied to us – to pass ObamaCare.
The Obama Administration (and the President himself) told the American voters, “If you like your plan, you can keep it.” It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that there was no abortion funding in ObamaCare. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that ObamaCare wasn’t a tax. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that ObamaCare wouldn’t increase the debt. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters ObamaCare would help the economy. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters they would have no trouble signing up for ObamaCare, that it would be as easy as buying on Amazon. It was a lie.
The Obama Administration told the American voters that health care would be affordable for millions of Americans because of subsidies – tax credits. Turns out this may be the biggest lie of all.
The Supreme Court just decided to review a case that could cripple ObamaCare because the language of the law only authorizes federal subsidies (tax credits) for health insurance purchased on state, not federal, exchanges. It means that all those millions of people who supposedly signed up for ObamaCare on HealthCare.gov (after it finally started working) can’t get the subsidies/tax credits they were promised, once again skyrocketing costs and making insurance impossible for millions more Americans.
Ironically, the Obama Administration’s only defense in this case is their own stupidity in drafting the bill; is that they just couldn’t find a way to draft the law the way they meant to.
But that’s just not true. We know this because once again Gruber said it plain as day.

WSJ - Challengers Argue Affordable Care Act Only Permits Tax Credits on State-Run Exchanges
ObamaCare as passed by Congress stated quite clearly that IRS tax credits (better known as ObamaCare “subsidies”) are available to subsidize insurance policies purchased through state ObamaCare exchanges. It does not state that subsidies are available for insurance purchased through the federal exchange.
After 36 states refused to create state exchanges, an action that had the effect of limiting the law’s individual insurance mandate and employer mandate, the IRS decided to simply make up a new regulation – without any statutory authority – that extended subsidies to insurance purchased on the federal exchange and thereby dramatically expanded the individual and employer mandates.
