I've seen this story[http://ace.mu.nu/archives/345945.php] in various places (that link is AoSHQ) and I think most are missing something. Burying the lede, if you will. Everything I've seen has focused on the fecklessness of the President, or on the "purely symbolic" gesture or whatever.
I want to focus on something else here:
"WH: Pres Obama's staff signed him up in person thru DC exchange. POTUS wasn't present, but involved"
That, right there, is an admission of insurance fraud. When you purchase an insurance policy, YOU must purchase the policy. Some "staff" can't purchase it for you, any more than a secretary could sign a contract for her boss. If "Obama's staff signed him up" they had to positively identify themselves as him. They would have been challenged on this and asked, "Are you the person applying for insurance" (well, they would except for the part where they're members of the Mob Presidency).
Now, I don't know about you, but if I admitted to insurance fraud, I'd go to jail. Of course, I'd also go to jail for a host of other things SCOAMT has done- there's a reason we call it the Lawless Administration.
So when you hear people "ooh" and "aah" over the fact that King Barackenhenan I lowered himself like a serf and "signed up for ObamaCare," make sure you point out that he is guilty of a crime that would send them to jail.
By his own admission.
