Every once in a blue moon you run across a leftist so locked inside his own bubble of insanity, he’s oblivious to the ridiculousness that dribbles out of his own mouth.
While the list of such individuals is rather lengthy, one person in particular is vying for the top spot, and, after his highly ironic comment about “Trumpcare,” he may cinch the title.
Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber — the guy who called American voters “idiots” — recently said that Republicans are crafting a “scam” with their alternative to the plan he designed.
Try not to laugh too hard.

More from the Boston Herald:
“Any replace[ment] that they would pass would result in millions of Americans losing health insurance, would result in higher premiums, and would result in a huge redistribution from the poor to the rich,” Gruber said on Boston Herald Radio’s “Herald Drive” show with John Sapochetti and Rick Shaffer. “Now if they are happy with that and they are willing to do that, I wouldn’t call that a replacement, I would call that a scam.”
As you might imagine, folks on social media got a real kick out of Gruber’s comments, and weren’t at all shy about calling the man out for his blatant hypocrisy:
This is rich. Coming from the guy who admitted to literally selling the country a bill of goods. https://t.co/Iy7eYsMNht

It’s hard to imagine a bigger scam in the history of this country than the travesty we not-so-affectionately call Obamacare.
Remember when the president promised that if you like your current plan you could keep it? Or that if you liked your current doctor you could keep seeing him or her?
Both of those “promises” immediately went up in smoke with millions of people losing coverage and having to find a new primary physician to take care of their health care needs.
As if that wasn’t bad enough, the Affordable Care Act, which was actually supposed to help provide insurance for those who previously couldn’t afford to buy it, made premiums skyrocket.
Those who didn’t want to buy into the scam were then fined — or more appropriately put, taxed — for not getting on board with the program.
Nothing says freedom like abusing the power of the law to force citizens to buy something against their will, right?
While Trump’s healthcare plan may not hit everything we need in order to fix the health care system at the moment, getting rid of any piece of Obamacare is a plus.
