Today, December 23, is the final "deadline" for signing up for coverage under Obamacare. Guess who's just now finally getting around to signing up? Why, President Obama, of course!
According to White House correspondent April Ryan, President Obama plans on enrolling in a plan on the Obamacare Marketplace before the end of the day. This, according to Ryan, is "leading by example."
Just off phone w/Valerie Jarrett @vj44 POTUS will sign up for for Health Insurance on the Market place by the end of today 2 lead by example— AprilDRyan (@AprilDRyan) December 23, 2013
"Leading by example," the last time I checked, does not mean waiting until literally the eleventh hour to do something. That action is better described by the term "procrastination." This is not President Obama leading by example. This is President Obama attempting to pull a fast one on the American people. If the president were truly trying to "lead by example," he would have been signing up at his computer at 12:01 a.m. on the day the exchanges opened.
This is the president's signature piece of legislation. He needs to own it.
