Jonathan Gruber praised Hillary Clinton’s health care plan in the run up to the 2008 election.
“I love the Hillary Clinton plan. What can I say? The Hillary Clinton plan was the Massachusetts plan,” Gruber said. “The Hillary Clinton plan was Obama’s plan plus the mandate. And I think it was a better plan.”
Gruber continued. “I was surprised politically she did that. I think Obama was a lot smarter politically to not have a mandate–at least in his proposal for the election.”
