With Jonathan Gruber, the Obamacare architect and Democratic Party hero turned pariah testifying before Congress, conservative groups are hoping for fireworks. One activist group, Tea Party Patriots, is ready to remind everyone why he’s there.
TPP is passing out shirts with Gruber’s likeness under the words “I’m With Stupid” and each of the “I’s” is an arrow point toward the MIT professor.
Gruber rose to national prominence when multiple videos surfaced of President Barack Obama’s adviser accusing the American people of being “stupid” when it comes to health care and economic issues, including issues specific to them.
Tea Party Patriots co-founder Jenny Beth Martin told The Daily Caller, “With all that’s going on in the Capitol, we didn’t want Mr. Gruber’s curtain call to go unnoticed. We commemorated his appearance, and in the spirit of the Season, we’d like to offer the Obamacare architect a dozen. He can use them as stocking stuffers for the economically unsophisticated.”
The group is handing out 250 shirts all around Capitol Hill, mostly on the House side. One place to watch are near the Capitol South Metro stop, but anywhere people who might be attending the hearing will be walking is “fair game.”
You can see what they look like below, they’ll be handing them out starting at 8:00 a.m. and go until they’re gone.
