The Stupid American Voter

Well, duh!  What’s the definition of insanity?  Doing the same thing twice, hoping for a better result?  American voters prided themselves on voting for the first Black American President of the United States.

We warned them.  His autobiography, published on the eve of the 2008 campaign, showed him to be blatantly Communist.  A racist.  A drug user.  He hates White Suburbia.  He wanted to follow the classic Marx objective of destroying the “petty bourgeoisie” middle class.  He wanted to “redistribute the wealth.”  And he wanted to enact universal health care, which would finish off our capitalist economy and put the Middle Class in its grave.

His vision of America is no better than a Third World country.  He believes the United States is an imperial power, which it isn’t.  In his first term, he bowed to every potentate on the planet.  He plans on placing welfare recipients in every suburban town in America.  Today, he is about to sign yet another executive order, allowing 3.5 million illegal aliens to flood our borders, consigning our country to a one-party system.

The American voter had the chance to rectify its mistake in 2012.  But The Stupid American voted for this traitor again.

You didn’t believe us.  But there’s a new witness identifying the Liberal Progressive attitude about American voters.  He’s Obama’s hand-picked architect of Obamacare (the Affordable [hah!] Care Act):  MIT Professor of Economics Jonathan Gruber.

Fox News has released videos of him mocking the intelligence of the American voter.  He calls all of you the stupid American voters.

Speaking at the University of Rhode Island in 2012, Gruber was discussing the so-called “Cadillac Tax,” which received assistance by universal health care “hero” then-Sen. John Kerry.  The “Cadillac Tax” mandates that insurance companies be taxed rather than policyholders.  Gruber said that taxing individuals would be “politically impossible.”  But taxing the companies would work because Americans didn’t understand the difference.

He was wrong about that, by the way.  The Americans understood well enough what it meant.  It meant that “someone else” was picking up the tab, “someone” who had laid them off from their jobs at the age of 40 or 50, with little hope of regaining their economic position.

Anyway, “so basically, it’s the same thing,” he continued.  “We just tax the insurance companies.  They pass on higher prices that offsets the tax break ‘we’ get.  It ends up being the same thing.  It’s a very clever, you know, basic exploitation of the lack of economic understanding of the American voter.”  He meant “by” but said “of.”

In 2013, at another event at Washington University in St. Louis, Gruber said the “lack of transparency” in the way the law was crafted was critical.

“This bill was written in an almost tortured kind of way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes.  Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

The Thing.

None of Fox News’ revelations has been reported by the Mainstream Media, ensuring the continued ignorance of the American voter.  The New York Times, according to Fox News, praised Gruber in 2012:  “It is his research that convinced the Obama administration that health care reform could not work without requiring everyone to buy insurance.”

In another interview, on Boston’s WGBH, Gruber didn’t argue with host Emily Rooney’s characterization that he had admitted to “intentional obfuscation.” In fact, he’s not really taking back what he said at all. He said he didn’t want it widely known that “we gave poor people money.” Gruber then pivoted to charge that “the master strategy of the Republican Party” is “to confuse people enough about the law so that they don’t understand that the subsidies they’re getting is because of the law.”

Oh, so the Republicans are the Rasputins who got the Stupid American Voter to pass Obamacare.

Right.

Rush Limbaugh has a kinder, gentler term for those misguided Americans.  “Low-Information Voters.”

You can’t have low-information voters with a compliant, low-information Media, which is supposed to be reporting, not propagandizing, performing public relations for the Democrat Socialist Party.

Thanks to the Media black-out, the Stupid American Voters remain ignorant of their stupidity.
