President Obama has yet to make good on the administration's promises that he would sign up for health insurance on the new government exchanges, the White House acknowledged on Monday.It's good enough for the peons, but not the people who passed it.
White House press secretary Jay Carney said that Obama has not signed up for Obamacare and that he did have a reason for the delay...
Shortly after Obama signed the new health care law in March 2010, a White House official said the president planned to walk the walk and sign up for the insurance exchanges his law created.
“The president will participate in the exchange,” an administration official told USA Today at the time.
If he follows through with the pledge, Obama will be opting to pay for the insurance without receiving a taxpayer subsidy because the law doesn't provide the tax benefit for those with access to generous coverage through their employers.
