Just before Christmas Eve President Obama enrolled on the healthcare exchange. Obama was signed up for the bronze plan. The internet buzzed from those on the left desperately seeking to prove that Obama is “one of us”. Malia, Sasha and Michelle did not sign up.
Healthcare.gov would not function for Obama either. A White House official had to travel to the D.C. office to sign him up while Obama and family were in Hawaii on vacation. Also, Obama’s private information is not available on the government database (unlike yours).
The President’s actions were nothing more than a poorly planned charade. In fact, the act proves just how wasteful Washington D.C. really is. Obama, Commander in Chief, will still have his healthcare provided by the finest military doctors in the world. Yet, he signed up for the bronze plan and your tax dollars will be paying for it. The plan costs $400 a month, or $4,800 a year.
Gracepointe Healthcare PLLC, a private healthcare group based in Nashville, Tennessee, which does not accept insurance, provides clients with unlimited doctor visits, labs and diagnostic tests, free telephone consultations, free prescription refills, and discounted house-calls for only $588/year. Adding a catastrophic healthcare insurance plan, which will cover catastrophic events, through a private company will set most people back less than $100/month. For only $1,788/year an individual could be provided far better healthcare than the bronze plan provides. Obama could have given 2.5 individuals healthcare under this structure. Instead, taxpayers will throw away $4,800/year so that Obama can play charades with the American public.
