Obamacare Architect Gruber: ‘Last Year’s Big Premium Increase’ ‘Actually Stabilized the Markets’

On Tuesday’s “MSNBC Live,” MIT Economics Professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber argued that last year’s 22% premium increase “stabilized” the market and that there are 2-3 million Americans paying high health insurance rates. “Look, before Donald Trump got elected, there were no markets in America, none, that did not have an insurer. Donald Trump has injected massive uncertainty into this market by being uncertain about whether he’ll pay the cost-sharing reduction payments that make health insurance affordable for low-income people, by not enforcing the mandate, by essentially just creating uncertainty about whether the law will even exist. These markets — there’s more we can do to improve these markets, but let’s be clear, Obamacare was not collapsing. Last year’s big premium increase, the 22% increase, actually stabilized the markets. Insurers have reported that after last year’s one-time increase, they’re ready to make money on this market, and it’s going to be successful.” He added, “85% of the people in these exchanges don’t pay these higher premiums. They pay a subsidized rate. So, yes, there are a large number of Americans, maybe 2 million to 3 million, who are paying high rates, and we should do something for them. I totally agree. But let’s remember, that’s compared to the 30 million Americans who would be completely uninsured if this law was repealed. So, I agree, there’s a problem. We should deal with it. But let’s deal with it constructively.”

So, on the liberal propaganda network, MSNBC, that nauseating fraud, Jonathan Gruber, even admits that Obamacare is broke!  Wow..  Remember it was he who was caught on video back in 2013 saying he and Obama were banking on “the stupidity of the American voter.”  Yep..  Google it if you don’t believe me.  So, all of you who voted for Obama, and the Dems that pushed that trainwreck on us…you got suckered.  Thanks a lot.
