Ed Henry To Carney: Will You Enroll In Obamacare? Carney: Absolutely, If I Didn't Have Insurance

ED HENRY, FOX NEWS: You're talking about enrollment. Will Jay Carney enroll in this? Will the White House enroll in Obamacare?

JAY CARNEY: Again, everybody -- you, if you have --

HENRY: Let's start with you.

CARNEY: If I, in a future life don't have employer provided --

HENRY: Great.

CARNEY: Ed -- does everybody here agree that we can ask questions and answer them, if you want -- you're not even letting me answer the question.

HENRY: Go ahead and answer it.

CARNEY: I'm not quite sure what you're

HENRY: Would you enroll?

CARNEY: Absolutely.

HENRY: It's a simply question.

CARNEY: Absolutely.

HENRY: So you are going to enroll?

CARNEY: Ed, if I did not have employer provided health insurance, like I'm sure you do, unless there's something about FOX that I don't know, then I would absolutely enroll. And it would be more affordable because of it and I think you'll see that around the country. But the whole purpose, again, the facts often either ignored or mischaracterized by critics, is that if you have insurance provided by your employer, that you like, nothing changes for you.

But if you change jobs or if you get laid off, and you then take a job, you start your own business, or take a job where you're not given insurance by your employer, you will now have, once the marketplaces are in effect, options that were never available before at affordable prices, and that's the point. And the irony of this argument that Republicans are making is that pretty soon they are going to be making an argument what they desperately want to do without an alternative is take benefits away from the American people. Benefits that help them live better lives and healthier lives.

Aren't democrats always saying how patriotic it is to pay taxes?  Well, Obamacare is a tax and employer paid insurance is a benefit so Carney is being unpatriotic. :tongue2:
Abraham Lincoln:

There is no grievance that is a fit object of redress by mob law.
--January 27, 1838 Lyceum Address

Don't interfere with anything in the Constitution. That must be maintained, for it is the only safeguard of our liberties. And not to Democrats alone do I make this appeal, but to all who love these
great and true principles.
--August 27, 1856 Speech at Kalamazoo, Michigan

Let us then turn this government back into the channel in which the framers of the Constitution originally placed it.
--July 10, 1858 Speech at Chicago
