Speak-os, typos and wackos

The so-called “architect” of Obamacare (see the international architectural equivalent here), Jonathan Gruber, said this week that nobody in any way suggested subsidies in the Affordable Care Act would be limited to states that established their own health insurance exchanges.

Well, nobody except Jonathan Gruber:

Gruber made such a claim at least twice in 2012, which is in line with the recent federal appeals court ruling which said pretty much the same thing. The Dems might be able to convince more people the problem is due to a “typo” if they weren’t running out of “free” stuff to promise in return for public trust.

This Gruber story might amount to little as far as the fate of the actual law goes, but it’s almost certain to cost Gruber some invitations to a few Dem re-election fundraisers. Who wants a photo-op next to the “architect” of something that’s crumbling before our eyes?

Gruber called what he said in 2012 — at least twice — a mistake, or a “speak-o” as he referred to it. In at least one of those addresses he made the claim from prepared remarks, meaning that his “speak-o” would have been caused by yet another “typo” — and you’d have to be a total wacko to believe any of this BS-o.
