"Himmler? He was just some adviser who never worked on our staff."
As President Obama spoke before the press as part of the G-20 conference in Brisbane, Australia, the subject of Jonathan Gruber came up in a question. Obama tried to downplay Gruber's role in formulating Obamacare.
"...just some adviser who never worked on our staff."
Not only was this guy paid close to $400,000 for his services, but according to Gruber's account on video, he was in the Oval Office with Obama when the problem of the so-called Cadillac Tax was "worked out".
Nancy Pelosi this past week claimed she didn't know who Gruber was even though she brought up his name, his analysis of Obamacare, and the fact that he was from MIT in 2009. That's all on tape as we now know. Now Obama tells reporters in Brisbane that Gruber was "just some adviser who never worked on our staff".
