Looks like it.

(From The Daily Caller)

Hoffer noted two invoices Gruber submitted in September and October, in which the economist claimed to have worked 100 hours at a rate of $500 per hour while his research assistants worked for 500 hours at a rate of $100 per hour.

But only one research assistant worked on the project, Hoffer reported, making it “unlikely” that Gruber’s invoice was accurate.

Pretty challenged on the math front for an MIT economist. One might even think this could be a legal issue, which it may become.

It should also be noted that the statewide “single payer” health program Gruber helped devise for the Green Mountain State imploded late last year.
