Chairman Darrell Issa Asks Jonathan Gruber If He Is Stupid


Citing Tom Hank’s character Forrest Gump, House Oversight Chairman Darrell Issa asked MIT’s Jonathan Gruber if he was stupid during a contentious House committee hearing on Tuesday.

“Are you stupid?” Issa asked.

“I don't think so. No,” Gruber replied.

“Does M.I.T. employ stupid people?” Issa asked.

“Not to my knowledge,” Gruber replied.

Issa was referring to earlier comments made by Rep. Elijah Cummings -- accusing Gruber of saying “some really stupid things” about the legislative process to pass Obamacare.

“As far as I can tell we are here today to beat up on Jonathan Gruber for stupid, I mean absolutely stupid comments he made over the past few years,” Cummings said, criticizing the political nature of the hearing.

“Let me be clear, I’m extremely frustrated with Dr. Gruber's statements,” Cummings added. “They were irresponsible, incredibly disrespectful, and did not reflect reality and they were, indeed, insulting.”

  1. Why lie, he was right, most American voters are stupid. He was just caught being honest. That's why the Democommies are upset, he told the truth. That's the unforgivable crime. The true crime here was fraud. The commies were fine with him until he got caught telling the truth.

    1. Correctamundo... He never called me stupid or anyone else that saw the trainwreck from te beginning. He only called Obama voters stupid...and he was indeed correct. Just another "phony scandal"...
