MIT professor Jonathan Gruber—who sparked outrage with his comments questioning the administration’s transparency and voters’ intelligence on the passage of Obamacare—is scheduled to testify before the House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform on December 9. Politico,
Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) sent a letter last week to both Gruber and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner calling upon them to testify at the hearing, which will focus on “repeated transparency failures and outright deceptions surrounding ObamaCare,” according to a release.
Gruber, an architect on Obamacare, was seen on a number of recently-surfaced videos making disparaging remarks about voters.
“Call it the stupidity of the American voter, or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass,” Gruber said at the time.
