MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, widely seen as the architect of Obamacare, was asked Monday how to fix the collapsing health care mandate and like a true liberal, the professor prescribed more of the same bad medicine.
In response to reports that health care premiums will go up sharply next year, Gruber was asked by CNN host Carol Costello for one fix that could be applied to Obamacare that would drive premiums down.
“There’s no sense in which this has to be fix… the law’s working as designed,” he said. “However, it could work better and I think probably the most important thing experts would agree on is that we need a larger mandate penalty.”
To recap, Gruber is calling for stiffer penalties to force more people to participate in the failing health care law.
Of course, he once said Democrats counted on “the stupidity of the American voter” to pass the Affordable Care Act, so Gruber may be hoping lightening strikes twice.

“The law is working as designed.”
Yes, we all know it was designed to fail.

@jason_howerton @YouTube only answer I have heard is yes, harsher penalties and bail out money. It’s ridiculous.

He’s right, it is working as designed. It was designed to fail to force a single payer system.
