Jonathan Gruber, Obamacare architect and now famous for calling the American voter stupid, also authored an Obamacare comic book, because we are too stupid to read a 2000+ page law, and certainly too stupid to understand it.
Thankfully he published this easy-to-understand, fully illustrated comic book so that we understand in pictures what we are about to be screwed by.
Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress says he is “one of the country’s smartest health care minds.” Hmmm. I guess that all depends on what you’re trying to accomplish. Pulling the wool over on the media and the American public? A scam artist?
David Cutler, Professor at Harvard University says we can all now “learn from the master.” Do you think he meant “master at deceiving the American public and sidestepping the SCOTUS?” Probably not.
Judy Feder, Professor and former Dean, Georgetown Public Policy Institute says “Jonathan Gruber’s straightforward explanation of what the Affordable Care Act does and why will help people understand what’s true and what’s false about the health reform law.” Really? Do you think there’s a page in there about how he had to deceive us in order for it to fly? Doubtful.
And how much money do you think he made from book sales? I was thinking it couldn’t be much because who really wants a $60 comic book about Obamacare? Then I looked at the Amazon sales rankings which were quite high:
Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #5,743 in Books (See Top 100 in Books)
#1 in Books > Textbooks > Medicine & Health Sciences > Administration & Policy > Health Policy
#5 in Books > Medical Books > Administration & Medicine Economics > Health Policy
#5 in Books > Textbooks > Social Sciences > Political Science > Public Policy
Nothing like selling your soul for a big pile of cash.
