Obamacare Passed Because of ‘Lack Of Transparency’ and ‘Stupidity Of The American Voter’
We’re not going to dispute that.
This is a video of economics Prof. Jonathan Gruber of MIT (responsible for policy in the Affordable Care Act) telling the truth. You can see he is not a politician
“This is the most transparent administration in history, and I can document how that is the case — everything from every visitor who comes into the White House is now part of the public record. That is something we changed. Every law that we pass, every rule that we implement we put online for everyone to see.” – Barack Obama, February 2013
Not a whole lot of democracy. But you don’t need any when you have wise Ivy League overlords like Mr Gruber.
As economist Jim Grant recently said, America is on a PhD standard (and from time to time on the ‘community organiser’ standard..).
I don’t know what is scarier, living in a society run by ‘academics’, or a society run by ‘the people’.
