The Affordable Care Act architect at the center of controversy over remarks he made last year about how the health law was passed had called the American voter “stupid” on at least one other occasion.
Jonathan Gruber, who helped craft the controversial law, was heavily criticized this week after video of him surfaced saying a “lack of transparency” and the “stupidity of the American voter” were “really critical” in moving the landmark legislation through Congress. . . . Read Complete Report

Illinois officials are hoping headlines like “Recently Insured Man Can’t Wait To Get Out There, Start Seriously Injuring Himself,” and “Man Without Health Insurance is Forced to Sell Action Figures to Pay Medical Bills” will bring the right blend of comedy and news to persuade more young people to sign up for new health coverage.
