Four U.S. states and the federal government have padded Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber's wallet to the tune of $5.9 million since 2000, including millions connected to his work on the Affordable Care Act.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology economist has been pilloried for collecting $392,600 from the Obama administration's Health and Human Services Department while the law was being written, but that was just the tip of the iceberg.
Gruber's consulting contracts give states and the feds access to a proprietary formula that can determine how changes in a health care system's structure will affect costs.
The 'Gruber Microsimulation Model' is what he sold to the White House. It helped Obama's team anticipate what the influential Congressional Budget Office (CBO) would say about various features of the final plan and whether their costs would officially be considered 'taxes.'

He’s right. We are stupid!
When did he have time to teach at MIT?
Micro stimulation. Wow just wow
Walking it back plus every possible idiot prompt
The left has managed to tax us conservatives in order to pay for think tanks called universities, radio propaganda called National Public Radio, television propaganda called Public Broadcasting, endless television advertising by Public Service Unions while at the same time deploying government agencies such as the IRS to muzzle conservative organs of opinion.
The left uses tax dollars to gin up studies to rig CBO reports upon which it bases legislation to obtain more tax dollars from a deceived public. It will soon fashion regulations designed to enable them in time to censor the Internet.
Jonathan Gruber is but a metaphor for the whole stinking spoils system.
Idiots and crooks love to brag how they scored thousands in crime and fraud but its usually done in some dive bar or at least after some drinking. Of course this thieving PhD is gonna brag and shoot his mouth off..... I am sure the gossip was hot n heavy among his acolytes and colleagues about all the millions he was raking in
His undoing and hopefully 0Kare's undoing
The Obama-Democrat-liberal-left playbook is about transferring our wealth to them (being parasites) in a million different ways
Funding the left/affirmative action Federal “workers”/La Raza/open borders and so on
Defunding the right and average normal Americans
Separation of church and state, what separation?
Someone needs to investigate what all the Globull Warming shills are making from us.
It will be $billions.
Well. Of course he did. He’s not stupid
Of course anyone who seeks to destroy this country for ideological or selfish purposes is by nature stupid, but not in the short term
And there will be hell to pay
And he’s not having a good time at the moment, with his $5.9 m. So how stupid is that? And stupid is getting filmed like that
But I’m not MIT.
I wish I was better at it. Actually producing something doesnt pay nearly that well.
I agree and it made me think about what would induce him to do this obviously foolish thing.
Arrogance and pride are the only things that comes to mind
Gruber is proud of what he has accomplished. He wants his peers to be amazed at the con job he has pulled on the voting public. The stupid people in flyover country have been duped by the MIT scholar in to surrendering their liberty and their treasure for a lie.
Gruber cant help himself. He cant help but brag those he thinks are like minded. He feels himself superior to those he believes not gifted enough to see the necessity of socialized medicine if not socialism itself.
You may be right.
I am guessing that the Grub has had to turn his phone off by now and possibly work from home.
Probably has gotten a few death threats by now Id wager.
But with that kind of money he can probably retire to Venezuela and live like a king in a socialist paradise.
I think that EVERY environmental LAWYER who brings a Lawsuit AGAINST the Govt. is PAID BY US ALSO!!!!! We pay both sides......I think I'm right about this from what I have heard.
Not only did he get filmed saying how stupid we are, but the audiences all LAUGHED with him!!!! And NO ONE reported it!!
Any death threats he may have gotten have ALL come from Obama’s people!!!
