Hearing on the ACA will be on December 9th
WASHINGTON -- The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has asked Jonathan Gruber, the economist and Obama administration adviser who admitted that "lack of transparency" helped pass the health law known as Obamacare, to testify about those statements.
Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., announced a Dec. 9 hearing on the Affordable Care Act, with Gruber and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Marilyn Tavenner as star witnesses.
They won't get friendly questioning.
"From the outset, the health law has been the poster child for this Administration's broken transparency promises," Issa said in a statement. "I expect Mr. Gruber and Administrator Tavenner to testify publicly next month about the arrogance and deceptions surrounding the passage and implementation of Obamacare."
Incoming House Oversight and Reform Chairman Jason Chaffetz was asked about Jonathan Gruber being called to testify last night on Fox News Greta
"You can't have somebody that outrageous making those types of statements and expect congress to just ignore it"
