Obama Still Hasn’t Signed Up For Obama-Care

From the Politico:

Obama to sign up for health insurance through exchange

By JENNIFER EPSTEIN | December 2, 2013

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."

Obama has been promising this for years. How long does it take to sign up? (Joke.) But what’s the problem? When has Obama not followed through on a promise?

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 an inadvertent admission from the Politico. So even the Politico believes Obama-Care is very expensive (even for millionaires like the Obamas), if it isn’t subsidized.

Anyway, it is amusing the way in which the Politico reported this news, compared to the conservative media.

From the Washington Free Beacon:

Carney: Obama Hasn’t Signed Up For Obamacare

December 2, 2013

White House Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed for reporters Monday that President Obama has yet to sign up for Obamacare, saying “I know he will and has said that he will… but I don’t have an update.” …

And from the Washington Examiner:

White House: Obama hasn’t yet signed up for Obamacare

By SUSAN CRABTREE | DECEMBER 2, 2013

President Obama has yet to make good on the administration’s promises that he would sign up for health insurance on the new government exchanges, the White House acknowledged on Monday. White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Obama has not signed up for Obamacare and that he did [sic] have a reason for the delay…

Still, is it even a good idea for Obama to sign up for Obama-Care? Won’t it compromise national security to have the Obama family’s personal information exposed to hackers?

    “Won’t it compromise national security to have the Obama family’s personal information exposed to hackers?”

    I hope there are thousands of hackers ready to ruin Obama’s life forever. I guess it really doesn’t matter though, he will screw up his finances all on his own once he is out of office. I read somewhere he had a credit score somewhere in the 600′s before becoming president and was buried in debt until his book deal. I doubt his handlers will continue to support him once he has done their bidding.
