In 2006 Mitt Romney praised Jonathan Gruber for ‘spending hours and hours’ on Romneycare

January 20, 2015

mittromney2-460x307  It is no longer a secret that Mitt Romney is going to run for President yet again in 2016. Mitt Romney spent many hours during the 2012 campaign trying to draw a distinction between his mandate that all Massachusetts residents purchase healthcare on a State level and Barack Obama’s mandate that all Americans much purchase healthcare on a national level. This distinction fell on deaf years.

  Romneycare was the model which was used by Barack Obama on the national level to implement healthcare reform and that was a ghost which Mitt Romney was not able to exorcise  during the last Presidential campaign despite his protests to the contrary.

  For all of Mitt Romney’s protests to the contrary there is another bond which binds Romneycare to Obamacare and that bond is non other than Jonathan Gruber.

  During his statement when he signed Romneycare into law Mitt Romney praised Jonathan Gruber for “sending hours and hours” crafting the model which he was about to sign into law.

  Here is what he had to day back then:

“There were contributors from outside government as you know,” Romney says standing behind a banner that reads “Making History in Healthcare.”

“Jonathan Gruber at MIT devoted hours and hours to an essential econometric model,” Romney says.

  Jonathan Gruber has since come under fire for admitting to deceiving the people due to the “stupidity of the American voter” in order to pass Obamacare. And here we have Mitt Romney praising the man, I cannot wait to hear Mitt Romney try to explain his way out of this one…

  If Republican voters are seriously considering nominating Mitt Romney for President in 2016 I will be forced to admit that Jonathan Gruber was right when he said the voters were stupid.

      I had not heard of this project but I hope it gets finished because it looks really interesting. I am sure there are forces working behind the scene to make sure it does not get out.
