It’s official, middle class warrior Barack Obama has officially joined the rest of us average Americans in joining ObamaCare. In a questionable move (considering his vast wealth he doesn’t personally redistribute), the President selected the Bronze Plan. As this statement from the White House tells us:
Over the weekend and in advance of today’s deadline, the President enrolled in a health care plan made available by the Affordable Care Act on the DC marketplace. As you all know, the President is one of the 85 percent of Americans who gets his health insurance through his employer and, like previous Presidents, is privileged to receive health care from the military.
Wait, he’s just buying this as a publicity stunt to symbolically show that he’s with the American people, because people really care when a rich guy buys something he doesn’t need and won’t use?
The act of the President signing up for insurance coverage through the DC exchange is symbolic since the President’s health care will continue to be provided by the military.
