Obama to sign up for health insurance through exchange

President Obama will sign up for health insurance through an Affordable Care Act exchange, press secretary Jay Carney said Monday

“I don’t have an update for you on that. I know that he will and has said that he will,” Carney told reporters.

Asked when the registration will happen and whether the White House will make it open to the press, Carney responded:  "I'll get back to you."

Soon after the ACA passed, the White House had told USA Today that Obama would sign up for insurance through an exchange, and when POLITICO followed up earlier this year, a reporter was directed back to those comments.

Carney's comments Monday were the first recent confirmation of the president's plans. He has the option of choosing to work through the District of Columbia or his home state of Illinois.

As POLITICO has noted, the president's decision would be a symbolic one, since he and the first family rely on White House doctors for medical care. It would also come at a substantial out-of-pocket cost because it would not be taxpayer subsidized.

What a load of basura.
The skeptic is never for real. There he stands, cocktail in hand, left arm draped languorously on one end of the mantelpiece, telling you that he can't be sure of anything, not even of his own existence. I'll give you my secret method of demolishing universal skepticism in four words. Whisper to him: "Your fly is open." If he thinks knowledge is so all-fired impossible, why does he always look? — James Sire (from, The Universe Next Door)

Mierda might be more appropriate.  :laugh:

De acuerdo.
