‘Incorrect promise’: Vacationing POTUS too busy to sign up for O-care himself
Remember when Valerie Jarrett promised that President Obama would be signing up for Obamacare today? Shockah! That promise came with an important disclaimer: “To be taken with a squillion grains of salt.” You see, it was just a “symbolic” gesture:
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.
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.
Well, it’s awful hard to sign up in-person when you’re off frolicking in the Hawaiian surf. And the president certainly wouldn’t wanna cut his vacation short to demonstrate that his namesake law isn’t the colossal sham we all think it is.
What else would you expect from President Hollywood?
President Obama is just like us!
It’s hard out there for a POTUS.
We wouldn’t put it past him if he had the chance.
Always nice to see the White House standing behind its policies and leading by example.
We couldn’t’ve put it better ourselves.
