Gruber Subpoenaed Over ObamaCare Contracts

ObamaCare consultant Jonathan Gruber has been subpoenaed for documents related to his work on the health law after refusing to give details about his compensation to House lawmakers.

House Oversight Committee Chairman Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) issued the order late Thursday, asking for a full account of Gruber’s contracts with federal and state health insurance exchanges.

The decision follows a tense hearing earlier in the week in which Gruber, famous for his comment that the “stupidity of the American voter” helped ObamaCare to pass, repeatedly declined to say how much he was paid as a consultant on the law.

Issa vowed to follow through with a subpoena and to possibly bring Gruber back to testify. The California Republican will be replaced as chairman in January by Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah).
