Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said the health care bill was written in a "tortured" way to ensure the Congressional Budget Office didn't score the individual mandate as a tax, even though the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately upheld the mandate as constitutional under Congress' taxing power. "Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage," Mr. Gruber said at the time. "And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to get the thing to pass." (Associated Press)

FILE - In this Feb. 8, 2011 file photo, Jonathan Gruber poses in his home in Lexington, Mass. Newly surfaced videos have revived the push by congressional conservatives to repeal President Barack Obamas health care law, about to begin its second year of coverage for millions of Americans. The videos show an MIT economist who was an adviser in the law's drafting saying the stupidity of the American voter helped Democrats pass the complex legislation, among other incendiary claims. Republicans, both lawmakers and activists, quickly mobilized to seize the off-handed comments, while Democrats dismissed economist Jonathan Gruber as an outsider who over-stepped in his remarks.
