Gruber In 2008: “I Love” The Hillary Clinton Healthcare Reform Plan

While speaking about the Democrat presidential candidates’ healthcare reform plans in October 2008, Jonathan Gruber – the MIT economist who said ObamaCare passed Congress because of the “stupidity of the American voter” – claimed to “love” Hillary Clinton’s plan and pronounced it “better” than Obama’s because it included an individual mandate.

This was not new information; the Clinton campaign had been touting Gruber’s endorsement of her healthcare plan since September 2007. If Americans were troubled by the role Gruber played in the Obama administration, imagine how much more he would have done under Hillary Clinton.
