As the White House and leading Democrats continue to distance themselves from Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, Congress is moving in and wants to put him under oath for questioning.
In an interview on Fox News last night, Republican Congressman Jim Jordan, who sits on the House Oversight committee, said "of course" Gruber needs to testify in front of a Congressional committee.
"He used taxpayer money to lie to tax payers and when it was all over he made fun of them. Of course he needs to come in front of a congressional committee and answer our tough questions about what he did, where all of the money went to. Lets hope that happens, there's a timing to it, but lets hope it happens and I think it will," Jordan said. "He was the man, the American people know he's the man. He lied to the American people using their tax dollars to do so, of course he needs to answer our questions.
Gruber was paid $5 million in taxpayer money through state and federal grants and paychecks for his work as a consultant on Obamacare.
Republican Rep. Jason Chaffetz will replace Congressman Darrell Issa as chairman of the House Oversight Committee when the new Congress begins in January.
