Jonathan Gruber, an architect of Obamacare, said "the stupidity of the American voter" and the "lack of transparency" in Obamacare was key in getting the bill passed. Will his comments reshape the debate in Washington?

Calling Jonathan Gruber an "architect of Obamacare" is much like calling Paul Krugman an "architect of Quantitative Easing." Dude issued an analysis of the bill. You can't analyze something you haven't built yet. The entire issue is (another) lie.

The American public IS stupid. For how long did they bitch and moan about how horrible Congress was? and the Republicans are the "party of no" and what do they do? they vote them right back in. SMH.

I don't know what this guy really said, because FOX NEWS reported it, and they spun it to piss off their fan base, political media sucks. they do that with both parties.

No, that is how our masters view their servants. All kidding aside, it is interesting that this guy is commenting on the stupidity of voters...the voters that gave the democrats majority control in congress thus giving us the ACA

I doubt it. On a side note, am I the only one who thinks of Die Hard every time you hear his name?

Only if WeThePeople create an S-storm the size of "Snowmaggedon" & demand that it does! They ALL lied to us & called us stupid so they could GRIFT legislation thru Congress & Supreme Court to "fundamentally change America." If we sit & take it, no...

Do you have your Rep's Twitter, FB, email, snail mail &/or phong number? Use them. Every single day, in some way, & make your feelings known - whatever your position - start... now!

In any other administration this would be the smoking gun. This man speaking on a video it's just business as usual.

Those comments won't reshape the debate because those sentiments have been a significant part of the debate since day one.

Conservatives should drag Obama's lying ass back to Washington to answer for his crimes.

But but but...that would mean he has to ride a fossil fueled Air Force one Back to America. Imagine all the harm that would do to the environment...

Besides, his administration is the "most transparent administration."

I think it will be easier for Republicans to get the medical device tax eliminated, and it will help them continue the debate into 2016.
