to 'pay' for Romneycare because it would've broken that state. And this asshole Gruber was right in the middle of it.
“We had a pretty powerful senator you may have heard of named Ted Kennedy,” Gruber said during an event at Simmons College in February. ”Ted Kennedy had managed to figure out a way to rip off the federal Medicaid program to the tune of about $500 million a year through a series of strange manipulations.
“Here was Mitt Romney’s dirty little secret that we don’t like to talk about in Massachusetts, which is the way we passed our law is the federal government paid for it.
And, not really a surprise, Bush 41 helped the bastards.
“George Bush said why am I sending this Democrat $500 million a year,
I’m taking it back,” Gruber explained, adding “Mitt Romney to his credit
went to George Bush and said, look, can we keep the money if we use it
for universal coverage. And Bush to his credit said yes.”
Lying, backstabbing sonsabitches all the way 'round. Apparently Bush didn't think stealing from the rest of the country was a bad thing if it was for a 'good cause' or something.
