Let’s Watch Pelosi Lie About Not Knowing Jonathan Gruber


House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) claimed Thursday that she doesn’t know who Jonathan Gruber is, but the tale of the tape proves she lied, again.

Pelosi and other Democrats who have supported ObamaCare are now attempting to distance themselves from Gruber after the ObamaCare architect and MIT professor was caught on video claiming Democrats used a “lack of transparency” and “the stupidity of the American voter” to pass the bill.

“I don’t know who he is. He didn’t help write our bill,” Pelosi said during a Thursday press conference.

“You have a person who wasn’t writing our bill commenting on what was going on when we were writing the bill who has withdrawn some of the statements that he made,” she continued. “So, let’s put him aside.”

Except, she wasn’t trying to “put him aside” during a 2009 press conference. Quite the contrary, in fact. The then-speaker highlighted his “estimates” as a counter-argument to Republicans. Apparently, Nancy Pelosi, as do most Democrats and proponents of big government, believe American voters are too stupid to pick up on their flat-out lies and deceptions.

The cost of the bill and plans were in dispute, and Pelosi used Gruber’s now debunked — or, at the very least bias — estimates, in order to validate figures that turned out to not be remotely close to reality.

Not only is the cost of health coverage skyrocketing under and because of ObamaCare, but the cost to the federal budget will be significant. In June, the Congressional Budget Office, which was also frequently cited by Pelosi and other Democrats, said they could no longer stand by their original projections because the proposal sent to CBO was written exactly how Mr. Gruber said it was — to trick us.
