Review

“Jonathan Gruber, one of the country’s smartest health care minds, has brought the epic struggle of health reform to life. By explaining the challenges in our health care system as well as the benefits of the reform with imagination and verve, he accomplishes what many have tried and failed to do—he makes the case for health reform as an important achievement for the American people.” —Neera Tanden, President of the Center for American Progress

“Having spent years working to make health care work for Americans, Jonathan Gruber has now provided another service: walking everyone through the benefits of the Affordable Care Act reforms so consumers are armed with accessible information. In an age when information is power, Gruber’s book is fun and informative, and it boils down the facts of health care reform for all Americans.” —Senator John Kerry
 
“If you want to learn about health care reform, you can do no better than to learn from the master. Jonathan Gruber shows how health care reform works in a way that everyone can understand. Read this book. You will not regret it.” —David Cutler, Professor, Department of Economics and Kennedy School of Government, Harvard University
 
“Jonathan Gruber’s straightforward explanation of what the Affordable Care Act does and why will help people understand what’s true and what’s false about the health reform law. His message is clear and easy to get: when it comes to health care, we’re all in it together; and, together, we will benefit from making the Affordable Care Act a success.” —Judy Feder, Professor and former Dean, Georgetown Public Policy Institute

Is this the same Gruber who admitted calling American's stupid? If so, why are readers still buying into his admitted lies about Obamacare? Jonathan Gruber admitted the only way to push Obamacare through was to ram it through with as little transparency as possible. He also thought American's were either apathetic or stupid which made passage of law easier.
The arrogance of this type of thought, it has been typical of current leadership for six years.

Really, Jonathan Gruber's childish comic-book style Democratic propaganda is filled with so many errors and distortions that it's amazing it passed editorial review and got published. Plus, he has a yellow, untrustworthy reputation. As a chief ObamaScare architect and socialist, he hid for a long time that he's received nearly $500,000 of direct, personal consultation payments from the feds, which has cost him his credibility. I'd love to debate this wacko.
Also, I've seen him on TV lately and he can't bring himself to admit or even address the entire "You can keep your healthcare plan and keep your doctor" lie, which was the reason for Obama's re-election and the basis of the entire move to socialize medicine in America. Obama should admit the lie and resign now.
Prof. Gruber is very slippery and untrustworthy and his comic book isn't looking so cute anymore, especially to the 6 million people who've just received health insurance cancellation notices, which will soon be 12 million.
Like Obama, Gruber is corrupt to the core and just another Ivy League wacko socialist professor with full tenure. Obamacare won't work any better than Amtrak did or US Post Office; they can't even bring up a website and had to give $500 million to Michelle's Princeton classmate to try to do so.
Obamacare has destroyed the private practice of medicine and will set our nation back decades in terms of medical R&D.
When MD Anderson, Sloan-Kettering and Cleveland Clinic start laying off thousands, you know we are heading for real trouble and horrid healthcare.

Why would anyone buy a book and support the author who on multiple occasions states that ACA was designed to fool the stupid American voter?

Wake up America this is what the elites think of you? You are stupid, too dumb and you need information given to you in a comic book!

I expected a fair and unbiased entertaining informational book. This was a one-sided view,showing only the benefits to be given out to many individuals, without a responsible discussion of the costs and who will eventually pay for the aspects of Health Care Reform. I would have enjoyed an unbiased look at the facts.

Gruber wants money to insult your intelligence by thinking you need a comic book to explain Obamacare to you? Every American should be outraged!
They should be free and a copy put in every bathroom stall in case their is nothing left on the TP roll!

Ah yes, the Ultimate Mastermind who fully understands that in order to pass such an abomination as Obamacare you have to deceive the "stupid American People." The only way to do this is to outright lie to Congress. I would have given this a negative value for a rating but alas, Amazon has not seen fit to provide "negative stars." Yes, I definitely need to buy a book like this since I am running short on toilet paper...
