Original post (11/13/14):  But I repeat myself. The context here is the latest revelation about the behind-the-scenes manipulation and deception the Obamacare architects engaged in to secure political passage.  Here's an excerpt from a FoxNews article that captures the name-famous portion of a talk given by John Gruber at a conference in 2013:
In the annals of elitist contempt for ordinary Americans, the remarks of an ObamaCare architect stand out. Jonathan Gruber of MIT, who helped shape the complex law, admitted the opaqueness was intentional.
“Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage,” he told a 2013 conference that had remained secret until now. “Call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically, that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”
Good article, very informative, and well-worth the few moments to read it.
