Former MIT economist Jonathan Gruber, described by many as the chief architect of Obamacare who infamously declared the law was adopted because of the “stupidity” of American voters, has been “fired for fraud.”

The Wall Street Journal reported in 2015 the discovery of 20,000 pages of emails sent by Gruber between January 2009 and March 2010 regarding his consultation for the White House and the Department of Health and Human Services.

Later, he was caught on video saying: “Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage. And basically, call it the stupidity of the American voters or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical for the thing to pass.”

He described how developers of the law deliberately called the so-called “Cadillac tax” on high-value employee plans a tax on insurance plans “rather than a tax on people, when we know it’s a tax on people who hold these insurance plans.”

The American people, Gruber said, were too “stupid to understand” that, emphasizing they were exploiting “the lack of the economic understanding of the American voter.”

Now the American Center for Law and Justice is pointing out the newest developments for Gruber in Vermont.

“As Mr. Gruber’s architectural debacle continues to collapse on the American people, you would think that an epic fail like his would make it challenging for him to attain gainful employment, yet ‘[o]fficials in Vermont had hired Gruber as an economic consultant to assess, examine and provide economic models for a now-abandoned plan to roll out a single-payer health care system across the tiny state,'” the ACLJ reported.

“For years, we’ve not only exposed his lies, but have detailed his ongoing self-dealing relationships with Obamacare and state government programs to implement it. He created the program’s problems and then has been richly rewarded for trying to ‘fix’ it.”

The report continued: “Gruber … finds himself no longer employed at his latest job ‘as a taxpayer-funded economic consultant for [Vermont’s] health care system.’ Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan – who concluded that Gruber’s conduct violated the Vermont Civil False Claims Act – ‘reached an agreement to settle the state’s potential legal claim that Gruber submitted false [personal services contract] claims to the state.'”

The report quoted the Rutland Herald newspaper:

Donovan said Gruber’s personal services contract with the state was a standard “time and materials” contract that specified Gruber would be paid only for services actually performed. The contract required Gruber to submit monthly invoices describing the work performed and the amounts billed for such work.

Donovan’s office found that Gruber submitted at least two invoices that were false with respect to the amount of work performed by a research assistant working for Gruber. The supporting documentation provided by Gruber did not reflect the actual hours worked by the research assistant, nor did the assistant keep records accurately reflecting the hours he devoted to the state project, Donovan said.

The ACLJ report, however, noted that Gruber’s problems go much deeper.

“Gruber has also written extensively on his view that the abortion of ‘marginal children’ is a ‘social good.’ In a ‘scholarly’ paper he co-authored titled, ‘Abortion Legalization and Child Living Circumstances: Who is the ‘Marginal Child?”, he concluded that ‘the legalization of abortion saved the government over $14 billion in welfare payments through 1994,’ referring to abortion of poor children as ‘positive selection.’

“That’s sick,” the ACLJ report said under the headline “Chief architect of Obama deceit and pro-abortion deception fired for fraud.”

WND reported the White House paid Gruber $400,000 to help develop and promote Obamacare.
