In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “The Kelly File” on Tuesday, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) called on President Barack Obama to “repudiate” Jonathan Gruber, one of the architects of ObamaCare, for remarks he made declaring the “stupidity of the American voter” being instrumental in getting ObamaCare passed through Congress.
“It’s really serious in a participatory democracy when you tell your fellow citizens that you’re either not smart enough to understand the truth or we can’t tell you the truth because you wouldn’t go along with it,” Gowdy said. “Well, if you wouldn’t go along with it, maybe you shouldn’t pass the law.”
“Put down the cognac and the lost writings of J.D. Salinger,” he continued. “If you want to see how stupid our fellow citizens are, take a look at last Tuesday night, because they rejected you, this bill and this administration.”
