THIS MAN WAS ON THE TAKE:
This week it was revealed
that Jonathan Gruber of MIT had a $400,000 contract with HHS to model the administration's health care plan's costs and effects. In the meantime, he's been a supporter of the legislation, specifically the Senate version
with its tax on (some) health care plans that are provided to employees. All last year he never disclosed that he was getting money from the feds. Ezra Klein has cited him favorably. So has Paul Krugman. And the White House.
This blog wrote up a skeptical post
that reviewed Gruber's Op-Ed in the Washington Post when it came out. Now it's clear why it raised suspicions.
