Issa Calls Gruber To Testify Before Congress
[su_right_ad]Embattled MIT Professor Jonathan Gruber has been summoned to testify before the House Oversight Committee.
Gruber, who could not be reached for comment, now faces the heat Dec. 9 in D.C.
“They can do two things — they can actually pump him for information or they can just grill him and make him squirm and therefore make the president and Democrats squirm,” said professor Dennis Hale of Boston College. “It puts it back on Page 2. … If they’re holding a hearing, it means there’s going to be news. The mainstream press will try to avoid that news, but it’s a little bit harder to ignore a Congressional hearing than an Internet video.”
U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) is calling Gruber and Medicaid Administrator Marilyn Tavenner before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee for a hearing about “health law deceptions.”[su_csky_ad]
