Barack Obama has signed up for Obamacare:
President Barack Obama has signed up for health insurance through an Affordable Care Act exchange, the White House said Monday. 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.
Obama gets free gold-plated personal care at an instant’s notice (he likes that plan and will keep it), but, as a PR gesture, he will throw a little money into a plan he doesn’t need. At least he’s suffering through Healthcare.gov with the common people. . .
But Obama did not directly sign up for insurance. Rather, his staff went in person to sign him up, an official told POLITICO. “Like some Americans, the complicated nature of the president’s case required an in-person sign-up,” the official said.
Figures. When the system didn’t work for him, he sent his flunkies to a back door that is not available to the common folk. So get this:
Senior adviser Valerie Jarrett told American Urban Radio Networks that the president is “leading by example” . . .
Leading by example? I don’t think that means what you think it means.
