MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow PATHETICALLY covers for Gruber’s Obamacare Revelations

Gruber’s original comments:
This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If [Congressional Budget Office] scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies. Okay, so it’s written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said that healthy people are going to pay in -– you made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money — it would not have passed… LACK OF TRANSPARENCY is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass. And it’s the second-best argument. Look, I wish Mark was right that we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.

MSNBC’s Ronan Farrow:
Is there a there to the controversy?… You were saying essentially that due to political pressures the language of Obamacare had to be somewhat opaque… somewhat lacking in transparency.
