Former DNC Chairman Howard Dean gave an excoriating critique of his own party’s key piece of legislation saying the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare, was “put together by a bunch of elitists” who “don’t fundamentally understand the American people.”
Dean said was shocked that Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber said “the stupidity of the American voter” was a “political advantage” in passing Obamacare in an interview with MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski on Wednesday.
“The problem is not that he said it–the problem is that he thinks it,” Dean said. “The core problem under the damn law is it was put together by a bunch of elitists who don’t fundamentally understand the American people. That’s what the problem is.”
Brzezinski cringed after repeating Gruber’s quote.
“Jesus!” Dean exclaimed after hearing that one of Obama’s key health care advisers would call the lack of transparency “critical” in passing the massively unpopular law.
