Tuesday morning Republican Rep. Trey Gowdy, who sits on the House Oversight Committee, had the opportunity to question MIT professor and Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber about the lack of transparency and deception used to get the healthcare legislation passed in 2010.
Throughout the hearing, Gruber claimed infamous comments he repeatedly made about "stupid American voters" and hiding a redistribution of wealth in Obamacare came after he attempted to "make himself look smart by insulting others." He also argued he isn't a political person and isn't well versed in the politics surrounding the passing of Obamacare. Gowdy wasn't buying it.
"You're a professor at MIT and you were worried about not looking smart enough?" Gowdy asked.
"Yes," Gruber said.
