Once Again, Obama Shows His Contempt For His Fellow Americans
President Barack Obama, in response to some pointed questions directed at White House Spokes person Jay Carny finally went ahead and signed up for ObamaCare. The way he did it is an indication of how much contempt he actually has for middle class Americans he wants to force on to ObamaCare.
First of all, the president already has the best health coverage your money can buy free of charge from military physicians of the White House Medical Unit.
So this is 'symbolic'. And to add insult to injury, he signed up for ObamaCare's Bronze coverage, the cheapest available and the one with the most minimal coverage, which of course he'll never use, even after his term in office is over. And did he sign up using the ridiculous website he spent close to a billion dollars of our money on? Are you kidding?
Obama also did not enroll through the troubled Healthcare.gov or the D.C. exchange’s website. Aides signed him up in person over the weekend, due to the “complicated nature of the President’s case,” the White House aide said. Some of Obama’s personal information is not readily accessible on the government databases used by the website for identity verification.
So, our president signed up for peon level coverage he will never use, exempted his family, didn't even have to struggle with the dysfunctional website and isn't going to have his personal information subject to those 'navigators' he wants the rest of us to entrust our own personal data to who lack even a criminal background check as a prerequisite to be hired.
After all the lies, the misery and lost jobs and income this president is directly responsible for, somehow he got the notion that this 'symbolic gesture' is going to look good and make us forget about that.
