There were a number of moments during Tuesday’s House Oversight and Government Reform Committee hearing on the transparency failures of ObamaCare. Republican members took turns grilling Jonathan Gruber, the economist who worked with the Obama administration to craft the law, and Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administration Marilyn Tavenner.
Toward the end of the hearing, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA) got his chance to question Gruber, who has come under fire in recent weeks for calling voters “stupid” on a few different occasions. Unlike many of colleagues, Collins didn’t spend much his limited time grilling him. Instead, he spent under a minute with a short but pointed statement to Gruber.
“I, frankly, didn’t think it could get worse,” Collins told Gruber. “Congratulations, it got worse, coming in here with the attitude you had.”
“I’m done with you,” Collins told Gruber, before turning his attention to Tavenner.
Gruber has a sad.
