My latest column for the American Spectator exposes the economic delusions of Obamacare’s chief architect. The piffle this guy peddles about his progeny has to be read to be believed:
George Orwell is often credited with writing, ‘Some ideas are so stupid that only intellectuals believe them.’ … A textbook case of this phenomenon can be found in a recent column published in the New Republic by Jonathan Gruber.
Gruber, who is a first class economist and a genuine intellectual, continues to write astonishingly stupid things about the dangerous and destructive creature he sired:
In his TNR piece, for example, he advises us, “[W]e know that the ACA will increase jobs in the medical sector in the short run, above and beyond any partial offsets from new excise taxes on that sector.”
That sentence begs the question: Who’s “we”? He can’t be including anyone actually working in health care. We know his brainchild is actually killing medical sector jobs by the thousands.
