Jonathan Gruber Really Wasn't On the White House Staff. He Made a Whole Lot More Money Than Anyone Who Was.

MIT professor Jonathan Gruber is a member of the one percent. Deroy Murdock counts up the cash that the Obamacare architect was paid by state and federal entities, mostly federal, to mislead the “stupid” American people into passing the law that he knew depended on most people not knowing what was in it.

$103,500 from the U.S. Department of State

$392,000 from the state of Minnesota

$392,600 from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Resources

$400,000 from the state of Vermont

$400,000 from the state of Wisconsin

$481,050 from the state of Michigan

$1,730,000 from the U.S. Department of Justice (that medical hotbed)

$2,050,000 from the U.S. National Institutes of Health

Lying to the American people for fun and profit…mostly profit. All tolled up, Gruber made a whopping $5.8 million on Obamacare advocacy.

Of course Gruber wasn’t on the White House staff. The president’s current salary is only $400,000. Gruber would have had to take a massive pay cut to leave his consultancy gigs.
