President Obama wants you to know that he’s just like you! He signed up for health insurance, just like he’s forcing you to do. The only difference that while the little people are stuck getting error messages on the Obamacare website or getting the runaround by a navigator on the phone, Obama is on vacation while his staffers work to enroll him in a “symbolic” plan that he won’t even use.
In what an official acknowledged is a “symbolic” move since the president gets his medical care from the military, Obama selected a low-cost bronze plan through the District of Columbia exchange. He made the pick over the weekend while vacationing in Hawaii.read the rest
Obama “was pleased to participate in a plan as a show of support for these marketplaces which are providing quality, affordable health care options to more than a million people,” the official added.
But Obama did not directly sign up for insurance. Rather, his staff went in person to sign him up, an official told POLITICO.
How exactly does one sign up in person without actually being there? Apparently it’s easy to have your tax-funded minions sign you up for a “symbolic” Obamacare plan. For those us in the real word, however, Obamacare stinks as bad as ever.
