Bob Cusack, editor-in-chief of The Hill, said he was “sure” ObamaCare architect Jonathan “has many, many e-mails that prove he has a very solid relationship with Democrats” on Monday’s “Your World with Neil Cavuto” on the Fox News Channel.
“I would imagine that Gruber is a bit shocked by it [Democrats throwing him under the bus], too, and I’m sure he has many, many e-mails that prove that he has a very solid relationship with Democrats and has had for years. They trusted him with putting together the centerpiece of what President Obama needed and wanted in his first term. So, i bet Gruber is shocked, too” he stated.
Cusack added “I think this [Gruber’s comments] is bad. The president was asked about it. [Rep.] Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) was asked about it. David Axlerod sent out a tweet over the weekend throwing Gruber under the bus and that’s what basically all the democrats have done…he was part of the community, as evidenced by that clip [of Gruber talking about strategy to pass the law with Obama on PBS’ ‘Frontline’] he went to the White House 19 times, he talked to president. but when he steps out of line, gets into trouble, they’re letting him go.” And “it’s actually helped the story they have thrown him under the bus repeatedly and it’s gone now into its second week, and Republicans are going to hold hearings, they’re going to bring Gruber up to Capitol Hill. They’re seizing on this. This is a huge, huge window of opportunity for Republicans.”
