Default Re: ObamaCare architect explained in 2012 video why only state exchanges pay subsidie

Gruber is now attempting to say he misspoke, but that can't be true...

He said it MORE THAN ONCE...

A number of states have even turned down millions of dollars in federal government grants as a statement of some sort. They donít support health care reform. I guess Iím enough of a believe in democracy to think that when the voters in states see that by not setting up an Exchange, the politicians in their state are costing state residents hundreds of millions and billions of dollars that theyíll eventually throw the guys out. But I donít know that for sure. And that is really the ultimate threat, is: Will people understand that, gee, if your governor doesnít set up an Exchange, youíre losing hundreds of millions of dollars of tax credits to be delivered to your citizens? So thatís the other threat, is: Will states do what they need to do to set it up?
He even pointed out it was a "threat"...
