I’m sure no one is terribly surprised at the recent revelations that the much-hyped “Affordable” “Care” Act was passed on the basis of lies and deceit. Or as its architect, economist Jonathan Gruber gleefully told a group of health economists, ignorance afforded a political advantage and the bill was passed because of “the stupidity of the American voter.”

If anyone is surprised at this revelation, then perhaps Gruber’s assessment of Americans was correct. Think about it: a guy comes along and tells you that he can provide the same level of quality and service in a new healthcare program that will at once cover more people, reduce overall costs, deliver better quality of service with better outcomes to boot. And on top of that he promises that you can keep your existing doctor and insurance plan.

To say that anyone who falls for this is gullible is to be overly charitable. During the lead up to passage of this train wreck, more sentient minds questioned the basic premise of the ACA, pointing out that it was neither “affordable,” nor did it have anything much to do with “care.” More accurately put, the ACA should be renamed the Secret Takeover Of Mindless Patsies law (STOMP), because that’s exactly what this law was designed to do.

Gruber’s explanation that had the Congressional Budget Office been given the straight goods on the law prior to its passage they could have scored the costs vs. benefits, which would have forever doomed passage. And all this time we thought Obama and the Democrats were incompetent, when in reality they’re planning a total takeover of life in America.

But it’s not like Americans weren’t warned. The vast Right Wing Conspiracy (myself included) railed against this law and cited countless jurisdictions where the government takeover of medical care went awry; including Canada, the UK, and Cuba. Saner minds pointed out that no government could provide all the goodies hyped over the ACA. There was talk of ‘death panels,’ questions about what would motivate medical innovations if there wasn’t a reward for the innovator and more importantly, the simple arithmetic of adding 15 to 30 million uninsured people at a lower overall cost. Right.
