What's next? A Wii game to explain Obamanomics? Help Mario the plumber avoid bankruptcy by avoiding excessive regulation, onerous taxes and a giant flaming $150-a-barrels of oil!
The MIT economics whiz who crafted President Obama’s national health-care overhaul now plans to explain the complex and controversial plan to the masses — in one long comic book.
Jonathan Gruber, a nationally recognized health economist who devised the economic underpinnings of Obamacare (Gruber hates the term), said his three comic-loving kids encouraged him to use the hip format of the graphic novel — basically an expensive comic published in book form — to tell the story of the complicated plan to 300 million Americans.
Unlike most comic books, Gruber’s won’t have a superhero like Batman or Captain America or a villain like the Joker, he said. . .
