Not Surprising – ObamaCare Architect Jonathan Gruber Lied and Overbilled State of Vermont…

Given the entire foundation surrounding Jonathan Gruber’s expertise is based on lies, deceptions and false presentations, does it really come as a surprise that he billed various state governments for products and services he neither produced nor serviced?

Vermont got “Grubered” !

According to Vermont Media: Vermont officials ignored “obvious signs” of problematic billing by health care economist Jonathan Gruber, the state auditor said in a memo released Monday.

Gruber’s invoices lacked important details and claimed dubious numbers of work hours as he prepared economic models for a single-payer health care system — but state officials failed to scrutinize the invoices, Auditor Doug Hoffer wrote.

[…] In the report released Monday, the state auditor said the Agency of Administration “failed to exercise due diligence,” naming Robin Lunge, director of health care reform, and Michael Costa, deputy director of health care reform.

Gruber submitted two consecutive invoices in September and October claiming the exact same figures — 100 hours for Gruber at $500 per hour, and 500 hours for his research assistants at $100 per hour. Only one research assistant worked on the project, according to the auditor’s report.

“The evidence suggests that Dr. Gruber overstated the hours worked by the RA and that the Agency of Administration ignored the obvious signs that something was amiss,” Hoffer wrote. “Even if the State was not overly concerned about the first invoice, Ms. Lunge and Mr. Costa should certainly have been alarmed by the second.” (read more)

Meh, fortunately for Gruber he’s part of a protected class and he will not suffer any legal action or admonitions.  If the State of Vermont were to hold him accountable it would expose more political types to scrutiny.  Ergo, alas he’s got nothing to worry about….

    Well, who in the Obama administration isn’t a crook; I mean, Obama’s the “Chief Crook” and the apples don’t fall far from the tree. So … graft, corruption and illegal acts are to be expected.
    Sadly, unless “We the American People” wake up, demand and take back our rights, this won’t stop until the America that once was is totally gone; and yes, if we were to do it today or very soon, we could, but it’s almost gone.

    Anyone know Gruber’s email or phone? Maybe some personal contact would make an impact.

    Lets see….500 hours per month (for two months) for a single assistant, with each month having approximately 20 work days per month….means the assistant work a 25 hour work day, every work day, for each month. Hum….that sounds fishy.

    Why is Gruber still walking around free?

    Kickback – more like FRAUD!!!!!!


  12. benzy says:

    I suggest that every American who was FORCED to sign up for Obamacare sue Jonathon Gruber for fraud and misrepresentation. We might now win a dime. but if even 10% of those suits made it into court, he would be bankrupted defending himself against them. Now that would be fair and just.
