Jon Gruber Made $6 Million From the American Taxpayer, Advising Government Officials On His Own Plan

Obamacare might have cost you a lot of money, but it's been very good to Jon Gruber.

Byron York writes more about the "Obamacare Profiteers."

The $400,000 paid to him by the Obama Administration was only the beginning of the gravy train.

But after the bill became law, Gruber made a good deal more from it. The Affordable Care Act provided for states to set up exchanges to sell taxpayer-subsidized insurance coverage. For those states that chose to do so, exchanges would have to be built from the ground up. Studies would have to be done. Contracts would be let.

In 2010, the state of Wisconsin, under Democratic Gov. Jim Doyle, paid Gruber $400,000 to do a study of the impact of healthcare refom...

In the two years between March 2011 and March 2013, the state of Minnesota paid Gruber $329,000 to study how to make its exchange conform with Affordable Care Act requirements.

In 2012, the state of West Virginia signed a contract with Gruber to study its healthcare system. "The state will pay MIT professor Jonathan Gruber $121,500 to understand the states health insurance landscape and revisit key assumptions about state health care policy," the Charleston Daily Mail reported in September of that year. "Gruber is a policy rock star of sorts. He's advised more than a half dozen states on health care reform."

In November 2011, the state of Vermont hired a consulting firm that used Gruber to study the state exchange. Gruber was paid at least $91,875 for his work.

In 2012, the state of Michigan included Gruber in a multi-firm, $481,050 contract to study its exchange system. It's not clear how much of that went to Gruber himself.

I have light-to-moderate ebola.

BTW: Barack Obama's YouTube channel contains a video of Jon Gruber stating that he is the architect of Obamacare.

So that should end the attempt by the left to claim that only "the right" calls Gruber Obamacare's "architect."

Gallup: Obamacare Falls to 37 Percent Approval. Good.
