What They Really Think of Us

Published November 13, 2014

In college my friends and I had an expression we would use regarding people that we thought might not be quite up to snuff in the brainpower department: “Dumber than a sack of hammers” (presumably they might outwit a single hammer, but a whole sack of them? Not a chance).

Apparently, this is how “they,” by which I mean chief Obamacare architect Johnathan Gruber in particular and staunch advocates of Obamacare in general, regard “us,” by which I mean everybody else. In recently unearthed video, Gruber discusses just how much they had to rely on the “stupidity of the American voter” to get Obamacare passed.

Watch it, it’s infuriating. And illustrative of just how much contempt our would-be benign rulers have for us little people who apparently could not pour water out of a boot even if the instructions were printed on the heel.
