• Gruber To Get Grilled By Issa’s Oversight Committee

    Infamous Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber will testify to Congress about the part he played in crafting the healthcare law and how he helped conceal its real effects from Congress and the American people.

    In recent months, several videos of Gruber surfaced including one showing him telling crowds that a “lack of transparency is a huge political advantage” and it was the “stupidity of the American voter” that was “really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

    Another video showed Gruber explaining how Democrats “played with the language of the Obamacare law” and that “the American voters are too stupid to understand the difference” in the law’s language.

    House Oversight and Government Reform Committee chairman Darrell Issa summoned Gruber to testify before Congress on Dec. 9. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services administrator Marilyn Tavenner will testify along with Gruber.

    Jonathan Gruber has made more than $2 million as a consultant for the federal government. He raked in nearly $400,000 for crafting Obamacare, specifically.

    Tavenner will be asked to explain how and why ObamaCare enrollment figures were inflated by nearly 400,000 enrollees.

    “The American people deserve honesty, transparency and respect from those who forced the federal government into their healthcare. I expect Mr. Gruber and Administrator Tavenner to testify publicly next month about the arrogance and deceptions surrounding the passage and implementation of ObamaCare,” Issa wrote in a statement when he announced the hearing.

    Obamacare is now more unpopular than ever, according to a brand new Gallup poll. Just 37 percent say they approve of the Un-Afforable Care Act. That’s a full percentage point below the previous low in January. Another 56 percent disapprove of Obamacare. And that’s a new high in disapproval.
