But we were told Gruber hardly played any roll in Obamacare...

The emails show frequent consultations between Mr. Gruber and top Obama administration staffers and advisers in the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services on the Affordable Care Act. They show he informed HHS about interviews with reporters and discussions with lawmakers, and he consulted with HHS about how to publicly describe his role.

The administration has sought to distance itself from the economist in the wake of his controversial statements in a 2013 video, where he said the health law passed because of the “huge political advantage” of the legislation’s lacking transparency. He also referred to the “stupidity of the American voter.”

I thought the administration and the MSM all said that he only played a "minor" roll and was simply "one of many advisors" that the consulted?!? What? They lied to us? No! Can't be!

“His proximity to HHS and the White House was a whole lot tighter than they admitted,” said Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R., Utah), chairman of the House oversight committee. “There’s no doubt he was a much more integral part of this than they’ve said. He put up this facade he was an arm’s length away. It was a farce.”

But we were told he was just somebody else involved, one of many.

“Thank you for being an integral part of getting us to this historic moment,” according to Sept. 9, 2009 email to Mr. Gruber from Jeanne Lambrew, a top Obama administration health adviser who worked at HHS and the White House. In a November 2009 email, she called Mr. Gruber “our hero.”

I guess Gruber and the MSM share the same opinion of the majority of Americans, that they are stupid. A number of us saw through this at the time but were mocked for "our" ignorance. Well look who the real rubes are, the Dems that supported this travesty that continues to hurt people and businesses even now as more and more of the reality of Obamacare is realized.
