ObamaCare Architect Jonathan Gruber In 2008: “I Love The Hillary Clinton Plan, … The Hillary Clinton Plan Was Obama’s Plan Plus A Mandate.” JONATHAN GRUBER: “I love the Hillary Clinton plan, what can I say. The Hillary Clinton plan was the Massachusetts plan. The Hillary Clinton plan was Obama’s plan plus a mandate and I think it was a better plan. I think that a mandate is really a central part of doing fundamental healthcare reform. 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. But I do hope – I think these numbers from Massachusetts, it’s gaining a lot of traction and I know the folks in the Senate who are working this are taking a mandate very seriously and I hope that’ll be part of a national debate.” (Jonathan Gruber, Remarks At MIT’s CIS Starr Forum, Cambridge, MA, 10/22/08)
