MN State Rep Wants $329,000 Refund from Jonathan Gruber for Work With 'Beyond Laughable' Error Rates

Minnesota State Representative Greg Davids is calling for embattled MIT economics professor Jonathan Gruber, the "architect" of Obamacare, to return all $329,000 he was paid by the state of Minnesota as a subcontractor on a 2011 contract to analyze the state's plan to develop its Obamacare health care exchange, MNSure.

On November 21, Davids sent a letter to Minnesota Attorney General Lori Swanson requesting her to investigate Gruber's work.

"In recent weeks," Davids wrote, "significant concerns have been raised regarding the contract between the State of Minnesota and Dr. Jonathan Gruber entered into in March 2011. In light of troubling remarks by Dr. Gruber and MNsure, I believe that a review of Dr. Gruber’s work, and payments made to him, is necessary."

On December 9, Davids sent a second letter to Swanson.

"Earlier today," Davids wrote, "in testimony before Congressional investigators, Dr. Jonathan Gruber refused to answer questions regarding compensation for his work with state-based insurance exchanges. The evasiveness displayed by Dr. Gruber reinforces my concerns expressed in the previous letter."

"I implore your office to investigate Dr. Gruber’s work and its relationship to MNsure’s fiscal troubles," Davids requested again, "and urge you to explore all possible remedies for recovering the taxpayer funds wasted on his report."

"To date," Davids told Breitbart News in an exclusive statement on Wednesday, "I have received word via phone call that the Attorney General's office was working on a response, but nothing in writing yet."

Davids blasted Gruber's projections for the state of Minnesota about enrollment for the state's health care exchange, MNSure, when it launched.

"MNsure, Dr. Gruber and Governor Dayton's Administration repeatedly guaranteed that the exchange would serve 1.3 million Minnesotans by 2016, including over 600,000 in commercial plans - a financial necessity to avoid a taxpayer bailout," Davids told Breitbart News.

"Those projections were so far off that it has proved absurd," Davids said.

"Instead of 500,000 private enrollees by the end of 2015, MNsure has repeatedly lowered Dr. Gruber's projections and now estimates that fewer than 70,000 will enroll in private plans by the end of next year," Davids added.

"The error rate for Dr. Gruber's work is beyond laughable," Davids stated.

"It is a shame," Davids continued, "that nearly $600,000 in public funds was used for projections that were inaccurate from the moment MNsure opened. The Dayton Administration has essentially used over $150 million in taxpayer money to build a broken IT system for public health programs."

Davids, who has served in the Minnesota House of Representatives since 1991, is scheduled to become Chairman of the powerful House Taxes Committee in January.

"There has been little to no transparency in Dr. Gruber's work with MNsure," Davids told Breitbart News. "Given that Dr. Gruber missed the deadline to submit his final report by four months - thereby avoiding scrutiny during the legislative process that led to MNsure's creation - it is sadly unsurprising that he may have failed to live up to other aspects of his taxpayer-funded contract," Davids concluded.

A Breitbart investigation into the state of Minnesota's 2011 contract in which Gruber was paid $329,000 as a subcontractor to develop economic projections using his proprietary Gruber Microsimulation Model has uncovered a disturbing pattern of billing practices that indicate a lack of oversight. April Todd-Malmlov, the former executive director of MNSure, the state's Obamacare health exchange, was the official responsible for that oversight.

Breitbart obtained copies of the Gruber invoices, the contract,  and the Gruber subcontract in a public records request filed with the state of Minnesota.

Though the contract, which was signed by former executive director Todd-Malmlov, clearly specifies that all Gruber's invoices should be itemized in detail, the invoices submitted by Gruber and paid by the state of Minnesota were notably lacking in itemization.

Gruber's invoices do not specifically tie to deliverables specified in the contract other than to assert vaguely that some of them were delivered. The invoices do not consistently refer to the deliverables specified in the contract, nor, with the exception of the final report, do they specify the dates the deliverables were completed, to whom they were delivered in the state of Minnesota, nor whether they were formally accepted by specific bureaucrats in the state of Minnesota.

Despite these shortcomings, former executive director Todd-Malmov authorized all of Gruber's interim payments as well as his final payment.

Gruber delivered two final reports, one in 2012 and one in 2013, each about 60 pages long. Todd-Malmlov formally certified her acceptance of both these reports.

But records obtained by Breitbart News from the state of Minnesota indicate there is no auditable trail for the work product that resulted in those final reports.

In addition, Gruber's invoices do not track specifically to the deliverables identified in Exhibit B of the contract. The deliverables in that exhibit are labeled Deliverable A, Deliverable B, Deliverable C, and Deliverable D. None of Gruber's invoices refer to Deliverable A, Deliverable B, Deliverable C, or Deliverable D.

The Gruber invoice that potentially aligns with Deliverable B is cryptic at best in describing what was delivered. The Gruber invoice that potentially aligns with Deliverable C actually does not match what is specified as Deliverable C in the contract. Only the final Gruber invoice--which refers to the final report referenced in Deliverable D-- tracks with any degree of specificity to the contract.








New York to Ban Fracking; Environmentalists Cheer

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Handing environmentalists a breakthrough victory, New York plans to prohibit fracking for natural gas because of what regulators say are its unexplored health risks and dubious economic benefits.

New York, which overlies part of the gas-rich Marcellus Shale formation that has led to a drilling boom in Pennsylvania and other nearby states, has banned shale gas development since 2008, when the state began an environmental review of the drilling technique also known as hydraulic fracturing.

Wednesday's announcement, though not final, means a ban is all but etched in stone.

"Never before has a state with proven gas reserves banned fracking," said Deborah Goldberg, an attorney with Earthjustice, adding that the decision "will give courage to elected leaders throughout the country and world: Fracking is too dangerous and must not continue."

Industry and its supporters expressed outrage at the decision.

"We are very disappointed that it appears the governor is unwilling to be a leader and is going to pass the buck at the expense of New Yorkers," said Jack Gerard, president of the American Petroleum Institute.

"This technology has been used for over 65 years in the United States. It's been demonstrated repeatedly after drilling millions of wells that we're able to do it while protecting the environment and protecting the people."

Environmental Commissioner Joe Martens said Wednesday that he is recommending a ban, and Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, responded that he would defer to Martens and Acting Health Commissioner Howard Zucker on the decision.

The Department of Environmental Conservation will put out a final environmental impact statement early next year, Martens said, and after that he will issue an order prohibiting fracking.

About 30 anti-fracking activists cheered the decision at a rally outside Cuomo's New York City office, chanting "Thank you, Governor Cuomo, for saving our air!" and "New York banned fracking — and next, United States!"

Zucker and Martens on Wednesday summarized environmental and health reviews that concluded fracking carries risks that haven't been studied enough.

The drilling boom in the Marcellus Shale, which also runs under Ohio and West Virginia, was made possible by high-volume hydraulic fracturing, which releases gas from rock by injecting wells with chemically treated water at high pressure.

The technique has generated tens of billions of dollars in industry profits and landowner royalties, and has reduced energy bills and fuel imports. But it has also brought concerns and sparked protests over air and water pollution, earthquakes, property devaluation and truck traffic.

Zucker said he had identified "significant public health risks" and "red flag" health issues that require long-term studies before fracking can be called safe. He likened fracking to secondhand smoke, which wasn't fully understood as a health risk until many years of scientific study were done.

Martens noted the low price of natural gas, the high local cost of industry oversight, and the large areas that would be off limits to shale gas development because of setback requirements, water supply protections and local prohibitions. Those factors, he said, combine to make fracking less economically beneficial than anticipated.

Even if drilling were allowed in New York, it probably wouldn't take off any time soon because of the uncertainty around regulations and legal challenges and the huge number of promising drilling locations that remain in Pennsylvania, David Spigelmyer, president of the industry group Marcellus Shale Coalition, said last week.

The Marcellus Shale is enticing to energy companies because of its proximity to the major demand centers of New York City and New England, which is paying more for gas because of delivery constraints. But the regulatory uncertainty remains too high to commit to drilling in New York, Spigelmyer said.

In states where fracking is not yet allowed or is happening but is subject to criticism, New York's move excited some anti-drilling activists.

"The more fracking expands, the more opposition grows," said Sharon Wilson, of the group Earthworks, who has organized anti-fracking activists in Texas, California and Colorado. "Industry is its own worst enemy because they continue to deny the impacts."

Fracking supporters decried the New York move. Karen Moreau, executive director of New York's branch of the American Petroleum Institute, said the Cuomo administration is denying landowners the right to develop their mineral resources.

"The secretary of energy, the U.S. EPA administrator and President Obama recognize the benefits of fracking, and yet the Cuomo administration simply did not want to anger their activist base," Moreau said.

Dan Fitzsimmons, president of the Joint Landowners Coalition, which represents leaseholders, accused Cuomo of appeasing "environmental extremists" for political gain.

"Is our health department ignoring impacts of other energy options and suggesting that we continue with our reliance on coal and nuclear energy?" Fitzsimmons said. "Did our health department consider the health effects of poverty and unemployment?"

Cuomo said he is expecting lawsuits will be filed "every which way from Sunday."

In California, energy companies have been using a type of fracking to extract oil for many years and are pushing to expand such drilling. Environmental groups hope the New York decision will influence Gov. Jerry Brown, who has largely supported fracking. A scientific study is due to be released next month.

Californians will ask now, "If it's not safe for New Yorkers, why should we think it's safe for us?" said Charles Margulis, with the California branch of the national Center for Environmental Health, a nonprofit organization.

Goodlatte: Court's 'Unconstitutional' Executive Amnesty Opinion 'Good Sign'

The recent court opinion declaring portions of President Obama’s executive actions on immigration to be “unconstitutional” bodes well for future litigation against the president’s recent order, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte tells Breitbart News. 

Tuesday, District Court Judge Arthur Schwab ruled that aspects of Obama’s executive actions go “beyond prosecutorial discretion” to actually legislating. He made these judgments as part of an opinion dealing with a criminal case.

“President Obama’s unilateral legislative action violates the separation of powers provided for in the United States Constitution as well as the Take Care Clause, and therefore, is unconstitutional,” Schwab wrote.

In a statement to Breitbart News, Goodlatte — whose committee has jurisdiction over immigration matters — said he agreed with Schwab’s analysis and expressed optimism about future court challenges to Obama’s executive actions. 

"I agree with Judge Schwab that President Obama's unilateral rewriting of our immigration laws violates the separation of powers and the President's duty to enforce the law,” the Virginia lawmaker said. “This ruling is a good sign for the states' lawsuit challenging President Obama's unilateral, unconstitutional actions.”

Goodlatte continued, saying that when Congress returns next year it must look at all options to take on Obama’s executive actions.

“Congress will continue fighting the President's actions early next year and should consider all the tools it has at its disposal, including potential litigation. Additionally, I am hopeful that the states will be successful in their effort to stop the President's actions from being implemented.”

Goodlatte recently signed on to an amicus brief the conservative American Center for Law and Justice submitted Tuesday in support of the recent lawsuit 24 states have filed challenging Obama’s executive amnesty. 

“The President’s executive overreach on immigration must be stopped,” he stressed Tuesday in announcing his support of the brief.

Taxpayer-funded astroturf: NYC Health Dept staffers encouraged to join immigration protest during work hours

**Written by Doug Powers

When there’s a blizzard and the government says “non-essential employees” don’t have to report to work, the real world wonders why the government has “non-essential employees” in the first place. This might help explain why:

The city Health Department encouraged employees to leave work Thursday and attend a rally condemning the Supreme Court’s split decision to block President Obama’s immigration plan, The Post has learned.

An e-mail sent to DOH workers informed them of the City Hall event hosted by Mayor de Blasio and urged that they participate.

“Staff who are able to attend are encouraged to do so,” the e-mail read. “If you cannot attend, but would like to watch the rally, it will be live-streamed.”

Hey, who doesn’t love their tax dollars being used to pay public employees to be astroturf for progressive temper tantrums?

And yet there are people who actually wonder why the Brexit struck a chord for a lot of people in the US. Go figure.

Update:

Thought experiment for the weekend: Try and imagine the level of lefty outrage if a right-leaning mayor told city employees to go to an anti-abortion protest during working hours.

The wind-up:

null

And the pitch!

An Associated Press review of the official calendar Hillary Clinton kept as secretary of state identified at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were not recorded or omitted the names of those she met. The fuller details of those meetings were included in files the State Department turned over to AP after it sued the government in federal court.

The missing entries raise new questions about how Clinton and her inner circle handled government records documenting her State Department tenure – in this case, why the official chronology of her four-year term does not closely mirror the other, more detailed records of her daily meetings.
[…]
In one key omission, Clinton’s State Department calendar dropped the identities of a dozen major Wall Street and business leaders who met with her during a private breakfast discussion at the New York Stock Exchange in September 2009, The meeting occurred minutes before Clinton appeared in public at the exchange to ring the market’s ceremonial opening bell.
[…]
Clinton’s calendar also repeatedly omitted private dinners and meetings with political donors, policy sessions with groups of corporate leaders and “drop-bys” with old Clinton campaign hands and advisers. Among those whose names were omitted from her calendar were longtime adviser Sidney Blumenthal, consultant and former Clinton White House chief of staff Thomas “Mack” McLarty, former energy lobbyist Joseph Wilson and entertainment magnate and Clinton campaign bundler Haim Saban.

That’s impossible! Secretary Clinton recorded all her permanent records on an Etch-a-Sketch for purposes of transparency and posterity.

Brexit vote open thread (Bonus: former US presidential candidate spots end of British empire); Update: David Cameron will step down

**Written by Doug Powers

The BBC has forecast that the Brexit vote is going in favor of the UK leaving the EU. In other words, Great Britain has said “screw EU.” Here’s an thread — just stay on the left side of the road, say “queue” once in a while and everything will be fine.

Howard “YEARGH!!” Dean says if the UK leaves the EU it’ll be the end of the trail for Great Britain:

null

I’ll go ahead and assume that Dean’s take will be shared by progressives almost everywhere, including the Obama White House. Seeing so many rational people unwilling to stay tied to somebody else’s sinking ship must be unsettling for lefties.

Update:

UK Prime Minister David Cameron will step down in the wake of the vote.

Trump’s New 180 On Immigration: No Mass Deportations

Trump's latest comments may make them take their red MAGA hats off.

The post Trump’s New 180 On Immigration: No Mass Deportations appeared first on RedState.

One of the big issues that attracted many to Trump’s side has suffered the same fate as pretty much every positions Trump takes.

Mass deportation has been something many Trump supporters have been looking forward to for some time, but Trump’s latest comments may make them take their red MAGA hats off.

“President Obama has mass deported vast numbers of people — the most ever, and it’s never reported. I think people are going to find that I have not only the best policies, but I will have the biggest heart of anybody,” said Trump in an interview with Bloomberg.

“We’re going to do it in a very humane fashion. Believe me. I have a bigger heart than you do. We’re going to do it in a very human fashion,” he said.

When pressed further on his mass deportation stances, he responded with “No, I would not call it mass deportations.”

Trump’s hard stance on immigration was one of his key selling points. His no nonsense talk about Mexican immigrants, prohibiting immigration from countries, and even building a “deportation force” that would rid this country of the illegal element. A promise he said he could accomplish in under two years.

Trump never came up with a plan on how he would accomplish this, but experts did work some numbers and find out that it would cost us $400 billion, along with a $1 trillion reduction in U.S. GDP.

However, as Trump has stated before, all of his promises are merely suggestions. Everything he promises can, and likely will be changed at some point during his campaign. That doesn’t speak well for his restrictions on immigration from “terrorist countries,” which he stands by…for now.

“I want terrorists out. I want people that have bad thoughts out,” said Trump. I would limit specific terrorist countries and we know who those terrorist countries are.”

It should be remembered that Trump at one point flip-flopped on his promise to ban all Muslims not long ago. So there’s no telling where his immigration plan actually stands.

TOLD YOU SO (Continued): Trump’s ‘Total and Complete’ Reversal on Muslim Ban

Sorry, Trump fans. That's the truth.

The post TOLD YOU SO (Continued): Trump’s ‘Total and Complete’ Reversal on Muslim Ban appeared first on RedState.

Trump-Train-Small

The fact that people are surprised when Trump backtracks, softens, changes, or outright contradicts a previous position is itself surprising. Of course he does. It’s practically all he does. He’s already done it on many of his core issues, sometimes jumping back and forth on the same issue like he has with regard to the Second Amendment. And now he’s done the same on his proposed “Muslim Ban”.

From CNN:

From the Washington Post:

Donald Trump has revised his proposed ban on foreign Muslims, with spokeswoman Hope Hicks saying Saturday that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee only wants to ban Muslims from countries with heavy terrorism.

Hicks said in an email that her boss took this new position — which is a dramatic scaling back of the position he first took in early December — during a policy speech nearly two weeks ago. In that speech, Trump did not mention Muslims and called for a temporary ban on “certain people coming from certain horrible — where you have tremendous terrorism in the world, you know what those places are.” At the time, it appeared that Trump was expanding his ban to include more people, not limiting its scope.

The issue came up Saturday as Trump gave reporters a tour of his golf course on Scotland’s eastern coast. During one of four stops along the 18-hole course, a reporter asked Trump if he would be okay with a Muslim from Scotland coming into the United States and he said it “wouldn’t bother me.”

So if you’re from Scotland you’re totally fine. Yes, that answer matters, even from a golf course. Your words matter. Sorry.

As with many of the other issues that Trump uses to fire up a … very special part of his base, his position on banning Muslim immigration has been deliberately vague. But before you let him off the hook because his spokesperson cites a speech from a couple of weeks ago, recall the way Trump put it in his speech back in December:

“… a total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States until our country’s representatives can figure out what is going on.”

“Total and complete shutdown.” He is 100% a walking that back. Either it is a “total and complete” ban, or it is not. It is not. He said that it was. That’s a reversal. This is not rocket science. Sorry.

Recall also that he referred specifically to the United Kingdom when he said London Mayor Sadiq Khan would be an “exception” to the rule. Which means it was a rule for the U.K. That’s just what it means. Sorry.

And do we even need to bring up the fact that, in his claims that Brexit is a validation of his politics that it is implicit that the United Kingdom has already allowed unfettered or dangerous levels of Muslim immigration from nations deeply involved in terrorism? We don’t need to. It’s obvious. Sorry.

There is no question what Trump was advocating and using to fire up his base. There is likewise no question that this is yet another reversal on his part. Not a “softening” as CNN puts it. A “total and complete” reversal.

Sorry, not sorry.

Dems Use Planned Parenthood To Hold Zika Funding Hostage

The Zika virus has caused panic in Latin American countries. Widespread concerns are affecting an already troubled Summer Olympics before they’ve begun, and turned athletes, spectators, and media personalities away from the games in Rio.

However, that’s far from the real tragedy.

The scariest thing about Zika is what it can do to a woman and her pregnancy. The virus, which is spread by mosquitoes or through sexual transmission, can cause an unborn child to develop microcephaly – a neurological condition that causes abnormal brain development, a smaller head, and a lifetime of health and physical problems. It is a devastating diagnosis to receive.

Because of this threat, abortions have drastically increased in some Latin American countries, even those which outlaw the life-ending procedure. BBC reports:

Fears over the Zika virus have contributed to a “huge” increase in the number of women in Latin America wanting abortions, researchers say.

Estimates suggest there has been at least a doubling in requests in Brazil and an increase of a third in other countries.

Many governments have advised women not to get pregnant due to the risk of babies being born with tiny brains.

Sixty countries and territories have reported cases of Zika being spread by mosquitoes. More than 1,500 babies have been diagnosed with microcephaly caused by the virus.

One woman from Peru told Women on Web: “I’m very concerned, I’m two months pregnant and in my country Zika has been detected.

“I love children, but I don’t believe it is a wise decision to keep a baby who will suffer. I need an abortion. I don’t know who to turn to. Please help me ASAP.

In the U.S. there have been 820 confirmed Zika cases. So far, each transpired because the infected individual traveled outside of the United States. Though travel-related cases are increasing, with New York and Florida topping that list, there have been no local or mainland incidents reported.

Meanwhile, in Congress, efforts to fund measures to fight Zika have stalled and won’t resume until after the Independence Day recess. Democrats and Republicans are fighting over financing, and disagreement over the role of Planned Parenthood funds. This so-called women’s “health organization” is part of the delay. The Hill reports:

Democrats say one of their biggest concerns about the bill — and one that would be expected to prompt a White House veto — is that Republicans are targeting women’s health groups.

“Preventing funding from going to Planned Parenthood? That’s a poison pill,” Sen. Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) told reporters Thursday.

Though Democrats claim the Republican version of the Zika funding bill seeks to harm women by steering it clear of Planned Parenthood, the opposite is true. Accountability is a must when discussing health-related funding. Planned Parenthood is outnumbered 20 to 1 by comprehensive women’s healthcare clinics, so the Leftist claim is nothing but a fog of fear. As the New York Times reports:

“Unlike the administration’s request that allowed overly broad authority for federal agencies to use Zika dollars with little accountability, this legislation places tight controls and oversight on spending to ensure that every dollar is being used appropriately,” the statement from the House Appropriations Committee.

Sadly, many unborn lives will be lost abroad as a result of Zika, and things could potentially worsen stateside. Not every infected person is a female of childbearing age, and of the infected individuals who are pregnant, a small number will receive a microcephaly diagnosis. While this may not be comforting to those facing the struggle of a disabled child, abortion is still not the answer.

Democrats in Congress refuse to acknowledge that the majority of women’s healthcare in this country is not related to Planned Parenthood. The best healthcare for women, whether Zika-related or not, remains with clinics providing non-abortive education, prescriptions, and services.

Donald Trump by now has made many policy speeches blasting the choices of Barack Obama and his administration. Of course, the slogan of “Make America Great Again” implies America isn’t great with Obama in the White House.

But does America agree with him?

So far, the polling says to me that Americans would rather side with Obama than Trump, if Trump is going to make racist comments. Trump took his first polling lead just before he made his infamous “Mexican judge” remarks, and then defended those remarks. Since then, it’s been all Hillary Clinton:

Screen Shot 2016-06-25 at 1.00.24 PM

Meanwhile, as Trump has caused Americans to distance themselves from him, they’re rallying around the President, sending him to 50+ polling he hasn’t seen in years:

Screen Shot 2016-06-25 at 1.01.50 PM

We’d already noted when Obama crossed over 50 for the first time since early in his second term. But now he rattled off three straight polls at 50, sending him to a solid +5 in favorability. Contrast that with Trump’s -22 in the latest CNN poll. -22 suggests Americans just don’t like him. No wonder he went to Scotland to invest overseas!
