In case you’re not aware, the damning videos of MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, which confirmed the worst fears of every single critic of Obamacare, weren’t uncovered by a journalist.

The entire American media complex was scooped by a regular guy who started looking into the way the law was passed after losing his healthcare plan.

James O’Keefe of Project Veritas recently sat down with the man only identified as “Rich” for an enlightening interview, in which he explains why he released the videos:

Project Veritas is releasing a video interview of the man who recently brought videos of MIT economist and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber to public attention. Award-winning journalist and best-selling author James O’Keefe conducted the interview, which is being distributed on YouTube.

During the interview, “Rich” stated that there was intentional mislabeling in the Affordable Care Act in order to hide a secret agenda in the bill: A two-hundred-and-fifty billion dollar per year tax grab.

“President Obama promised us the most transparent administration in history,” said Project Veritas President James O’Keefe. “Rich has opened a new debate about an effect of the Affordable Care Act which will impact over one hundred and fifty million Americans. We deserve to know if part of the Obamacare plan was intended to eliminate the two hundred and fifty billion dollar yearly tax break. If this is the case, we also deserve to why this information was kept from the public by the White House.”

All is not lost for Gruber. In fact, one person thinks he deserves an award.

Jonah Goldberg at the New York Post:

Jonathan Gruber, the arrogant, profiteering liar of the year

Jonathan Gruber should have been Time’s Person of the Year. The magazine gave it to the “Ebola Fighters” instead. Good for them; they’re doing God’s work. Still, Gruber would’ve been better.

Time’s Person of the Year designation has lost a lot of its stature. Part of its decline can probably be attributed to the fact that it’s come to be seen as an honorific.

It was originally conceived to recognize the person who, “for better or for worse . . . has done the most to influence the events of the year.”

So Adolf Hitler (1938) and Josef Stalin (1939 and again in 1942) qualified.

In 2001, however, the editors couldn’t bring themselves to bestow the title on Osama bin Laden, even though he certainly deserved it. (Mayor Rudy Giuliani got it instead for his heroic response to the evil deeds of the person who influenced the events of the year most decidedly for the worse.)
