The clownshow president today will trot out some people who’ve allegedly been helped by his disastrous takeover of the American medical system. This should be the shortest press conference ever.
The Obama administration on Tuesday will launch a campaign to promote the broader benefits of the president’s signature health care law, after widespread criticism from both Republicans and Democrats over HealthCare.gov’s technical problems and insurance policy cancellations.
President Obama will pitch the Affordable Care Act at a White House event where he’ll be flanked by people who have been helped by the law, according to an administration official.
The president will also take aim at Republican-led efforts to repeal ObamaCare, arguing the GOP is trying to strip away benefits provided under the law without presenting an alternative proposal, the official said.
“Healthcare.gov met our self-imposed November 30th deadline and even as we continue to make improvements to the website, we’ll also remind the public about how the Affordable Care Act is already making a positive difference in the lives of millions of Americans today,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.
Face with an impending bloodbath at the polls next November it’s clear their strategy will be to point at Republicans and say “Hey, these meanies want to take away your healthcare.” Cynical, sure, and no doubt will work with the Kool-Aid guzzling zombies still left supporting this failed president.
We doubt there will be any questions allowed, but it would be nice if someone asked him why he hasn’t signed up for this mess.
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.
Chances are pretty strong Obama won’t trot out people who’ve been kicked off their health plans and are left uninsured.
Bob Shlora of Alpharetta, Ga., was supposed to be a belated Obamacare success story. After weeks of trying, the 61-year-old told ABC News he fully enrolled in a new health insurance plan through the federal marketplace over the weekend, and received a Humana policy ID number to prove it.
But two days later, his insurer has no record of the transaction, Shlora said, even though his account on the government website indicates that he has a plan.
“I feel like this: My application was taken … by a bureaucrat, it was put on a conveyor belt and it’s still going around, and it’s never going to leave the building,” he said. “I’ve lost hope. If it happens, great.”
Judging by Obama’s disastrous poll numbers of late, Shlora isn’t the only one who’s lost hope. Meanwhile, one of Obama’s hapless minions brushed off Obama’s non-stop lying by weakly claiming how refreshing it is that he’s apologized for his serial lying. Except he hasn’t done that.
