Having exposed the arrogance and self-admitted deception that was used to get the healthcare law past the “stupidity of American voters,” it seems ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber regrets his comments… As The Daily Caller reports, during an interview with MSNBC, Gruber explained he “was speaking off the cuff and basically spoke inappropriately,” adding, “I regret having made those comments.”
Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said Tuesday that he regrets saying that aspects of Obamacare needed to be concealed from the public due to the “stupidity of the American voter.”
“Do you stand by the comments in that video?,” MSNBC host Ronan Farrow asked Gruber, referring to a video of Gruber explaining how a lack of transparency helped Obamacare pass into law.
The comments in the video were made at an academic conference,” Gruber said. “I was speaking off the cuff and I basically spoke inappropriately and I regret having made those comments.”
Farrow then argued on Gruber’s behalf that Gruber’s argument was more “nuanced” than people can even appreciate.

Of course, what else would MSNBC do? Starts at around 31 seconds… (Gruber comments start at 1:20)

We suspect what he means is “I regret being caught saying those comments.”
