One of the main architects of Obamacare has been fired after settling a fraud lawsuit with the State of Vermont.
Gruber settled charges that he billed the state for work that he never did.
The Daily Caller reported:
“Vermont’s Attorney General has settled the state’s claims of fraud against Jonathan Gruber, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor who served as a technical consultant for President Barack Obama and as one of the chief architects of Obamacare.
Under the terms of the settlement, Gruber will no longer work as a taxpayer-funded economic consultant for the state’s health care system and he won’t seek to be paid any money he might be owed, reports the Rutland Herald, a Vermont newspaper.
For its part under the agreement, the Vermont’s attorney general will not pursue legal action under the Vermont Civil False Claims Act.
Vermont Attorney General T.J. Donovan announced the settlement on Friday after state investigators wrapped up an inquiry into Gruber’s billing practices.
Officials 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.”

Gruber is the same man who said that the stupidity of the American voter is what allowed Obamacare to pass through congress.
Gruber’s issues is latest example of problems among the powerful in the Democratic Party.
Bernie Sanders and his wife Jane are under FBI investigation for fraud.
