Jonathan Holmes Gruber is a professor of economics at M.I.T. and is the primary architect of Obamacare. He was caught on film calling the American people stupid. This is what he said about Obamacare.“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage, and basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.” I agree to a point with Gruber. There are far too many stupid people in this country. The stupid people are those who in light of overwhelming evidence to the contrary continue to vote for the Democratic Party and their ideology that is evil to the core. Then there are those who voted for the Republicans believing that they are actually going to bring about positive change. The Republicans stood for nothing. They won because people are desperately seeking to stop Obama and the Democratic agenda. It is obvious that they still don't get it..
I prefer to believe that most people are just plain ignorant. I would rather be ignorant than stupid. You can fix ignorance through education but as they say, you can't fix stupid. Too many Americans are more interested in social media, video games, prime-time television, and pop culture. They are not paying attention which contributes to their ignorance. The mainstream media contributes to this ignorance by not fairly reporting the news. However the American people are not as stupid as Dr. Gruber thinks they are. Yes, a combination of stupid and ignorant people elected Obama and a Democratic Congress This enabled the passage of Obamacare. Americans in overwhelming numbers have never at any time wanted Obamacare. They didn't want it when it was passed and they do not want it now. In fairness to the Republicans, not one Republican voted for it. There are far too many elitist snobs like Dr. Gruber who are not as smart as they think they are. I trust the American people in their ignorance far more than I trust all the Dr Gruber's in the world. A warning to the Republican's however. If you blow this opportunity you have been given you do it at your peril. There is a growing desperation among the great unwashed masses. The last decent Democratic President, John F. Kennedy, said it best. "Those who make peaceful revolution impossible will make violent revolution inevitable"
