MIT’s ‘Frustrated’ Jonathan Gruber On The Merits Of The Individual Mandate
Jonathan GruberThe Supreme Court has agreed to hear arguments over the constitutionality of President Obama’s national health care law. At issue is the individual mandate, which requires people to pony up for coverage or face penalties. This frustrates MIT economist Jonathan Gruber (above), who was a chief architect of both the Massachusetts and the national bills. He says the mandate is the glue that holds the whole thing together.

Guest:
  Jonathan Gruber, professor of economics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, with a focus on the areas of public finance and health economics. The Washington Post has called him, “possibly the [Democratic] party's most influential health-care expert.”
