Not ‘too stupid’

At last the truth emerges. The so-called intellectual elite have revealed their true sentiments in the words of Jonathan Gruber, one of the highly paid academicians hired by the Democrats to develop and promote ObamaCare.

As the architect of ObamaCare, Gruber alleged that the American people are “too stupid” to know what is best for them. Therefore, he said, they must be duped into acquiescence.

While the American electorate is far from stupid, there does exist a bloc of voters who are easily duped. For example, anyone who would believe the following statements made by our community organizer-president is suspect.

• If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor — period.

• If you like your medical plan, you can keep your medical plan — period.

• The average family will save $2,500 annually in medical insurance payments.

All of the above were to occur despite the addition of 30 million new ObamaCare enrollees.

And yes, there’s a bridge in Brooklyn I would like to sell you.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
