Gruber: Hey, You Stupid American Seniors Are Really Terrible at Picking Healthcare Plans

Over the weekend President Obama took a page out of his trusty scandal playbook by playing dumb about the continuing outrage surrounding Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber.

"I just heard about this," Obama said to reporters overseas Saturday, nearly an entire week after the Gruber scandal broke.

ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: At your Burma townhall a couple of days ago, you tried to inspire young leaders by saying, "governments need to be held accountable, need to be responsive to the people." I wonder how you square that with your former adviser, Jonathan Gruber claiming you were not transparent about the health law because in his words the American people, the voters are stupid. Did you mislead Americans about the taxes, about keeping your plan in order to get the bill passed?

PRESIDENT OBAMA: No, I did not. I just heard about this. I get well-briefed before I come out here.

Regardless, Grubergate is marching on and now, The Daily Caller has revealed that on top of thinking American voters are "stupid," Gruber also believes senior citizens are "terrible" at choosing healthcare plans.

Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “seniors do a terrible job choosing” their own public health care plans, according to presentation slides Gruber wrote that were obtained by The Daily Caller.

With Obamacare limiting patients’ ability to choose their own insurance plans, doctors and medications, we might now know why: the law’s designers don’t think people know how to choose.

“We have experimented with choice in public insurance: Medicare Part D,” Gruber stated on a presentation slide dated Jan. 22, 2013. “Typical senior has 50 PDPs [Prescription Drug Plans] to choose from.”

But what’s wrong with seniors being able to choose their own plan?

“Seniors do a terrible job choosing,” Gruber said.

Those dumb seniors, it's not like they ever have healthcare needs so it's no wonder they are so terrible at choosing plans that work best for them... Besides, fellow Obamacare architect Ezekiel Emanuel, brother of former White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel, wants them all to die at 75 anyway. Who needs a healthcare plan when we have rationing and canceled plans?
