Former senior White House adviser David Axelrod on Sunday had a frank response to the recently surfaced comments made by MIT professor Jonathan Gruber, who helped craft the health care law.
In the video, Gruber said that Obamacare passed due to a “lack of transparency” about the bill and the “stupidity of the American voter.”
As one who worked hard to make ACA and its benefits clear, let me say: if you looked up “stupid” in dictionary, you’d find Gruber’s picture.

When Buzzfeed asked Axelrod to expand on the tweet, he responded, “Seems self-explanatory.”
The White House on Wednesday said Gruber’s comments are “simply not true.”
