Jonathan Gruber poses in his home in Lexington, Mass., in 2011. Newly surfaced videos have revived the push by congressional conservatives to repeal President Barack Obama’s health care law, about to begin its second year of coverage for millions of Americans. The videos show an MIT economist who was an adviser in the law’s drafting saying the stupidity of the American voter helped Democrats pass the complex legislation, among other incendiary claims. Republicans, both lawmakers and activists, quickly mobilized to seize the offhand comments, while Democrats dismissed economist Jonathan Gruber as an outsider who over-stepped in his remarks.
