DAILY OBSERVATON: The Gruber Controversey is extremely important for what it reveals.

In Jonathan Gruber’s fits of arrogant braggadocio, this overpaid “architect of Obamacare” has clumsily informed the public of what critics had alleged all along.  The President’s legacy legislative accomplishment was passed on the bases of ignorance (having not read the bill), lies, and knowingly false financial projections.

This is not simply later events failing to live up to honest expectations.  The entire Obama administration was involved in a complex conspiracy to mislead the public.  Thanks to Gruber, there is now a public wariness of a deceitful lame-duck president descending the slope of public trust and confidence.

The revelations have significant importance because they change the metrics going forward.  They make it more credible for the Republican Congress to do radical surgery on the Affordable Care Act.  Gruber provides testimony that may well influence courts dealing with Obamacare.

He also exposes just how compromised the Main Stream Media has been.  They not only parroted the Obama/Gruber talking points without question, they relegated critics to a collection of flint-hearted idiots.

In bragging that his and Obama’s deception was only possible because of the stupidity of the American public, Gruber lays bare the inner guts of liberal philosophy.  While left wing adherents appear in public wearing a “sheep’s skin” of compassion and beneficence, their paternalism is predicated on a fundamental belief in both their intellectual and moral superiority.   It is a belief that produces an authoritarian lust for power manifest in excessive regulation, confiscatory taxation and redistribution of wealth to subservient classes – and all this carried out under a rubric that the ends always justify the means.

Gruber’s claim of pandemic stupidity proves the opposite.  His lies and deceits were necessary to circumvent the intelligence of the public.  By his own words, had the public known the truth, Obamacare would not have become the law of the land.

Ironically, Gruber’s arrogance has been a great service to the nation, because it produced the truth that has now risen in repudiation of his own cynical campaign of disinformation.
