An emotional moment occurred during the Jonathan Gruber hearing on Tuesday when a congresswoman opened up about her husband's death, telling Gruber to "get over your damn glibness." Rep. Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.) pointed out that the implementation of ObamaCare is having real consequences for Americans.
Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), chairman of the House Oversight Committee, then directed the first questions to Gruber. Bringing up the movie "Forrest Gump," he asked Gruber point blank whether he is stupid.
Below is the transcript of the opening statement from Jonathan Gruber to the House Oversight Committee this morning.
Jonathan Gruber is set to face a House panel this morning after the ObamaCare architect was caught on tape several times declaring the "stupidity of the American voter" when it came to understanding the law. Now, as he faces off today with Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and other Republicans in the House Oversight Committee, a Tea Party group is reportedly vowing to greet him wearing the t-shirt shown above.
