In one of the most anticipated hearings on Capitol Hill, Jonathan Gruber's testimony before the House Oversight Committee came with party favors.
The Tea Party Patriots handed out free t-shirts that read, "I'm With Stupid" and point to a picture of Jonathan Gruber's face. According to The Daily Caller, the TPP is handing out 250 shirts around Capitol Hill. I was given one outside the subway station nearest to House office buildings.
Jenny Beth Martin, the cofounder of the TPP, told The Daily Caller:
“With all that’s going on in the Capitol, we didn’t want Mr. Gruber’s curtain call to go unnoticed. We commemorated his appearance, and in the spirit of the Season, we’d like to offer the Obamacare architect a dozen. He can use them as stocking stuffers for the economically unsophisticated.”
Gruber was a major architect in the formation of the Affordable Care Act and made his claim to fame when he was caught calling the American voters stupid for allowing the ACA to pass.
