Jonathan Gruber, M.I.T.

As Grubergate continues to unfold, Reason.com’s Remy offers up a new video revealing just how President Obama’s administration discussed selling Obamacare to the American people.

Sure, Remy wasn’t involved in the deliberations but, from his telling, he seems to have a pretty accurate read of how it went down and you will love the video.

Take a look:

As Jonathan Gruber could tell you, the only way to sell “stupid” American voters on Obamacare was to keep us confused about what the law actually does.

LYRICS:
Folks would be aghast if
this law would be passed but
thankfully they are so dumb

Sure our team can’t build a
website in three years but
THEY’RE the ones who are so dumb

So, what’s the strategy?

Don’t tell em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even
Don’t tell em, don’t tell ’em
You ain’t even, you ain’t even gotta tell ’em

It’ll bring prices down with it
Your healthcare plan will stick around with it
Boy, you know I’m from Chicago
Maybe they get a clown with it…

Don’t let me catch you snoring
Making government bigger is never boring
Our CBO strategy’s named “Bill Cosby”
we’re looking for an improper scoring

When folks ask what’s in you lie through the tooth
Why? Why? Why? Why? Why? Why?
Our ideas are so good we can’t tell the truth
That’s right right right right right

But won’t people read it in three years or so?
My, my, my, my, my, my
Who’d look inside something that many years old?
