Obamacare was a huge payday for MIT Economics Professor Jonathan Gruber. According to The Daily Caller, Gruber earned nearly $5.9 Million dollars since 2000 as a consultant on government health care issues, including the federal Affordable Care Act of 2010. About $1.6 Million was paid to him by at least four state governments, including Massachusetts and California, and the rest from Uncle Sugar. Aside from some $392,600 paid by the Department of Health and Human Services specifically for his work on the ACA, Gruber also received money from the Department of Justice, the State Department and over $2 Million dollars from the National Institutes of Health. Meanwhile, Barack Obama and the White House are trying to distance themselves from Gruber and his speeches about how the American people were duped by Obamacare.
