White House press secretary Jay Carney insisted Wednesday that he would enroll in Obamacare were he not already covered by his federal health plan.
“If I did not have employer-provided health insurance ... I would absolutely enroll,” Carney said during his daily briefing with reporters Wednesday.
But as Carney conceded, he won’t enroll — at least as long as he works in the White House.
Starting Oct. 1, Americans who don’t receive health coverage through their employers can sign up for Obamacare exchanges.
