The powerful lawmaker who put loose-lipped ObamaCare architect Jonathan Gruber on the hot seat earlier this week isn’t quite finished with the MIT economist.
Check it out:
Rep. Darrell Issa, the Republican congressman who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform, has issued a subpoena demanding all of Gruber’s documents and communications with federal, state, or local government employees regarding his work on the controversial health care law.
“As one of the architects of ObamaCare, Jonathan Gruber is in a unique position to shed light on the ‘lack of transparency’ surrounding the passage of the President’s health care law, however he has so far been unwilling to fully comply with the Oversight Committee’s repeated requests,” Chairman Issa said in a statement. “This week, Dr. Gruber repeatedly refused to answer several key questions, including the amount of taxpayer funds he received for his work on ObamaCare. The American people deserve not just an apology, but a full accounting, which Dr. Gruber must provide.”
