  1. Fairly nice apology, but he turns right around and dismisses it all with saying that it’s all dependent on the context.

    That’s a classic non-apology: :I’m sorry, but….”

  2. Gruber said I am a professor not a politician. After passage of ocare.
    He apologized for the ugly comments. He us embarassed for his remarks.
    He is talking fast.

  3. What a waste of time, and a transparent offer to the public that the Repubs are doing ‘something’ about the mess created by the ACA.

    So, he apologizes, or he says he was just bragging, or he says his statements were the truth, or he says everyone in the WhiteHouse and the Dem Congress knew this was all built on lies – so…then what?
    We still have this horrible law ruining millions of lives, destroying people’s jobs, restricting access to health care, and ….so….
    Memo to Repubs:
    Quit looking for scapegoats. Quit talking about the ACA.
    Start doing something, act, destroy, revise, delete, or just kill the whole thing and force MrObama to defend it.

  4. Issa asked: Are you stupid?
    Are you a stupid man?
    If people knew the whole truth, they would not have voted on it.
    People got increases in their insurance and taxes, was part of plan to provide for other people. In order for Mr. Goldman gets reduction other’s would go up. Cost shifting occured. Gruber said it fell in his model. Issis said not in real life.

    • Is that name plaque in front of him the usual thing? I mean, do they put a person’s degree on it in every case, or do they just say something like Dr. Jonathan Gruber? It seems sarcastic to point out that the person who made such stupid remarks is a Ph.D. Maybe it’s just irony. I wish we could borrow a page from Mao’s China and make him wear a dunce cap before the committee.

  5. Ms Tvenner was asked for informationon the creation, and who put it together.
    Tavenner was ask, can you ask your people for info? We issued a subpoena. She said yes.
    Mr. Turner asked Gruber Complex microsimulation modeling, that is called a tax. 3-16-11 first mislabling, tax. Won’t get tax credits, but will be tax. Gruber was asked is it your purpose to recant ocare as a tax.
    He said he was there to discuss insults.

  6. I have never seen a live hearing where someone has repeated “You can take it up with my counsel.” a hundred times. It seems clear that Mr. Gruber is afraid that he will be exposed and he doesn’t want Americans to know how much he was paid, for whom he worked, and reveal that the ACA is one big hoax perpetrated against the American people who didn’t want it in the first place. This probably goes all the way to the White House. It’s like the missing e-mails from Lois Lerner and all the other political cover-ups. They know nothing or can’t recollect, and in Mr. Gruber’s case, he’ll perpetually drag this out until hopefully it is forgotten. We are not fools, nor dumb, Mr. Gruber.

  7. Well I only listened to about 3 minutes and he is lying… said 10 million have healthcare now due to ACA. Didn’t we learn recently that a huge number of signups were for dental plans only last year?

    Any sign yet of “I’m With Stupid” t-shirts that were supposed to magically appear?

  8. Bringing this over from another thread—

    Listening to the Committee quizing Gruber on C-Span radio. Yep, he’s a weasel. “I can’t remember.” “I don’t recollect”. “I would have to ask my counsel”. Cannot give a yes or no answer. Flat responses. Slippery. Doesn’t know how much money he’s made off ObamaCare. Clearly not used to be asked specific questions by people expecting clear answers.

  9. Also, Mr. Gruber said repeatedly under oath that much of what he said on the videos was glib, etc. and that he was trying to sound smarter, more experienced than he was. He has been paid lots of money for his expertise. Can those who paid him now sue him because he misrepresented himself?

  10. I may have missed it but I would like to know, as Gruber was taped numerous times making his, “American are Stupid” comments, what group of people was Mr Gruber making these comments too. He seems quiet comfortable making this comment before these people so please would someone ask him to whom he was making these boorish comment to with so little concern?
