Jonathan Gruber Blames Obamacare Failures On Donald Trump [VIDEO]
[link to dailycaller.com]

Obamacare spinmaster Jonathan Gruber blamed President Trump on Sunday for some of the failures of President Obama’s health care law.

Gruber, an MIT economics professor who is considered one of the architects of Obamacare, made the bold claim during an interview with Chris Wallace on “Fox News Sunday.”

While discussing the House’s passage this week of a Trump-backed bill to repeal and replace Obamacare, Wallace pointed to statistics showing that health care premiums have skyrocketed as insurance companies are fleeing some markets.

Premiums under Obamacare went up 24 percent last year, and the average number of insurers in each marketplace fell from 5.9 to 3.9, Wallace noted.

“Look, and who’s fault is this? Before President Trump was elected there were no counties in America that did not have an insurer. Since President Trump has been elected, and massive…,” Gruber responded.

“Wait, you’re going to blame the problems of Obamacare on President Trump?” Wallace interjected.

Gruber went on to claim that Trump has undercut the open enrollment program in Obamacare and “doesn’t honor the obligations this law makes to insurers.”

“As a result premiums are going up and insurers are exiting,” he said.

Gruber has reason to defend Obamacare at all costs given that his career and reputation are staked to the law.
