National Institutes of Health paid him $2 million for Medicare consulting Justice Department has added $1.7 million for expert witness testimony Four US states combined to pay him another $1.6 million for advice about health care laws, and contracts for four more states were unavailable If those states followed suit, Gruber's haul would exceed $7.5 million Gruber has become a thorn in Democrats' sides since videos emerged of him candidly discussing how the Obama White House misled Americans to pass the Obamacare law

hes stated his intent to defraud. that should be enough!
BRING the CHARGES and lets get this underway.
one would think that those who PAID him would have to be judged complicate in this fiasco as well.
WHAT DID OBAMA KNOW and when did he know it??
Shouldn’t that be a crime?
Con men have no respect for their marks.
No wonder they call American voters stupid. Of course, many here knew what was going down from day one.
What did they know and when did they know it?:
Check the WH visitor logs!

As I wrote on another thread:
Gruber has billed various government entities (White House, NIH, states) for his expertise. Suppose he made roughly $6 billion. What was his billing rate? If it was $500 per hour, he supposedly put in 12,000 hours of work over the years. If it was $1000 per hour, he put in 6000 hours.
Now, there’s only 2000 billing hours in a year. Did he put in 3 (or six at the $500/hr rate) full man-years on this crap, or did he multiply bill the same work over and over, which he already had in his pocket after the first job?
I’d like to know, and I’d like to screw him over if he double/triple/multiple billed for essentially the same work. Also, for being a sneaky snarky Dem tool, but that’s a different matter.
When you follow the money, sometimes you find all kinds of interesting things.
I want to know what the states were getting for $400,000 apiece.
Also the article says he was given $103,000 from the State Department for “legal services”. The State Department?
Supposedly not all that money went directly to him. Some went to groups he was affiliated with and he received a cut of it. Would still be interesting to see a thorough breakdown.
“Gruber has billed various government entities (White House, NIH, states) for his expertise. Suppose he made roughly $6 billion. What was his billing rate? If it was $500 per hour, he supposedly put in 12,000 hours of work over the years. If it was $1000 per hour, he put in 6000 hours.

It was our money. I think a letter of inquiry to my Rep is in order to for me to understand exactly how he was paid.
And he never had an honest job in his life. He is a parasite sucking the life out of the system.
I’d settle for 30 minutes alone in a room with this guy.
Guy was just doing his job, my beef is with the politicos who hired him.
This is what the Government paid for- The Gruber Microsimulation Model
This model apparently was the economic model used to forecast the economic impact of ObamaCare.
We were told it predicted a $2500 per family cost savings under ObamaCare, a number we now know to be false.
If the Gruber Microsimulation Model actually predicted the $2500 cost savings then Gruber owes the Government a big refund due to faulty work product .
If the Gruber Microsimulation Model is correct and it predicted the ObamaCare disaster we are seeing then we have been lied to and defrauded by the President of the United States and the Democrat Party.
The Gruber Microsimulation Model will tell us what our policy makers knew and when they knew it.
Can’t post what I’m thinking....but I hope they do it. And, no, it doesn’t involve bodily harm.
