BROKEN PROMISE: White House: Obama hasn’t yet signed up for Obamacare.
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.
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.
A reporter pressed Carney on whether the White House would make it an open-press event if and when Obama does enroll.
“I’ll get back to you,” Carney replied.
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.
Expiration date, hit.
