Nancy Pelosi Jonathan Gruber ObamacareIt seems like every day there is a new Jonathan Gruber quote proving the utter contempt that the architects of The Affordable Care Act hold for voters. The other day he was grinning as he talked about the “stupidity” of Americans, and now his comments from the Honors Colloquium 2012 at the University of Rhode Island are making the rounds: “It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.” It’s all very telling, but not as telling as Nancy Pelosi proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that she thinks just like him.

On Thursday, Ms. Pelosi denied she knew of Mr. Gruber.

“I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill. And, so, with all due respect to your question, you have a person who wasn’t writing our bill commenting on what was going on when we were writing the bill.” — Nancy Pelosi on Jonathan Gruber, Nov. 13, 2014.

The Washington Post, however, points out that in 2009 she most certainly knew of Mr. Gruber and his work.

“Our bill brings down rates. I don’t know if you have seen Jonathan Gruber of MIT’s analysis of what the comparison is to the status quo versus what will happen in our bill for those who seek insurance within the exchange. Our bill takes down those cuts, even from now, and much less preventing the upward spiral.” — Nancy Pelosi on Jonathan Gruber, Nov 5, 2009.

Ms. Pelosi thinks you are stupid. There is no other explanation for someone who acts as if the Internet does not exist. Only a woman with little to no respect for the American public would tell a blatant lie on camera in 2014 when she knows — she must know — that the power of the Internet will expose her shortly thereafter.

Her chutzpah knows no bounds. She even touts Mr. Gruber’s work on her own website:

Pelosi GruberAs I said before, these are the people who want more control of the Internet in their hands. These are the people who will make sure “Net Neutrality” provides a “free” and “fair” Internet. The same woman who obviously thinks her lies disappear down Orwellian Memory Holes wants to control the Internet like a public utility.

Wake up, Millennials. “Hope and Change” was never about “We are the ones we’ve been waiting for.” It was about you being the ones that shameless liars were waiting for.

They admit behind closed doors that they think you are stupid. They admit behind closed doors that they seek to exploit your “lack of economic understanding.” And they will continue to lie and deceive until you send them home and deny them of the power and influence they so desperately crave.

  1. Net Neutrality could have some positives but with the current trend of government lies I cannot trust that it will be nothing more that a power grab masked in the shadows. Where are all of the tweeting liberals on this….as usual silent and trying to change the subject.
