The Obamacare Obama gets
The Washington Post ^ | December 30, 2013 | Marc A. Thiessen

Who says government health care doesn’t work? There is a government health plan that is available to a small number of individuals. The risk pool consists of a few dozen people, all of whom work in one building in downtown Washington. If they need a check-up, the doctor comes up to their office for a house call. If they need a prescription, the medicine is delivered to their desks. If they need to see a specialist, they are taken by government transport to one of the best hospitals in the world. If they need surgery, a special suite is available.

And it is all free of charge.

This is not Obamacare. But it is the care President Obama gets. Obama, his family and members of the White House senior staff are all taken care of by the doctors of the White House Medical Unit. It’s the best health plan in the world. I know. For a brief time, I was on it.

The president should have this kind of health care. And to the extent that he depends on having his top aides healthy and available to him, they should, too.

But with this kind of health coverage, why on earth did the president make such a show of “signing up” for Obamacare? He admittedly has no intention of using it. The White House says he signed up as a “symbolic” show of solidarity, so he could lead by example. Really? That would be like Obama signing up his kids to attend D.C. public schools as a sign of solidarity with the poor kids trapped in failing schools — but then saying it was just “symbolic” and sending his kids to their tony private school instead.....

Because Obastard voters are dumber than rocks? Just a guess.

Didn't I read that he made a show of signing up and couldn't get through because his SSN wasn't verifiable or the site was down? Then, some flunkie aide did it for him instead. Pretty much EVERYTHING the Big 0 does is for show.

I don’t understand why the office is still considered precious and/or irreplaceable when the job qualifications have degenerated to “no experience required” along with forged or inaccessible credentials.

Did Obama sign up or did President Jarrett order the sign up for him?

Odumbo signed up? I didn’t think he could read or write.
Wonders never cease.

Really, you surprise me with a statement like that. Haven't you read any if his Harvard Review articles?

Oh, wait... I don't think we get that opportunity!

****

Obama was a “minority student” He was chosen by fellow students through a “special writing competition”.

No “special writing competition” by the “minority student” obama has been published or released by Harvard that would explain or justify how obama was chosen by fellow students for his “writing skills”.

This is how obama was chosen to be the president and editor in chief of the Harvard law review. Though writing skills competition. Yet obama DID NOT PUBLISH ANYTHING OF HIS OWN!

Let me review. Obama has NO RECORD of ANY WRITING SKILLS or PUBLISHED ANY WORK of HIS OWN WHLE AT HARVARD!

OBAMA HAS PUBLISHED NOTHING AT HARVARD YET HE WAS THE PRESIDENT OF THE HARVARD LAW REVIEW AND WORKED AS AN “EDITOR IN CHIEF” 50 HOURS A WEEK?

Obama was chosen because of affirmative action and because he was a “minority student”. Obama was not chosen because of any published writing skill. No published work equals ZERO proof obama is a “skilled writer”. There is no EVIDENCE obama ever did ANYTHING to qualify for the position of president of the Harvard Law Review except though AFFIRMATIVE ACTION for his minority.

Obama seems to have had affirmative action help but there is NO evidence he EVER QUALIFIED for any help through his WRITING SKILLS! Obama ONLY qualifed because he was a MINORITY!

This is why there is no record of any published works from obama while he was the “president” of the Harvard law review. - http://theobamahustle.wordpress.com/tag/harvard-law-review/

DOG AND PONY SHOW---OBAMA's AIDE ENROLLED OBAMA AND NOT THE OBAMA FAMILY B/C TAXPAYERS ARE PAYING BIG BUCKS FOR THEIR INSURANCE.

Obama himself did not sign up for healthcare---his staff went to the D.C. exchange in person to sign up Obama...but it was just for show. He already has insurance---that we pay for.*

AND GET THIS Seems Obama's personal information is not readily available in the variety of government databases HealthCare.gov uses to verify identities.........

(NOTE---enrolling Obama w/ fraudulent documents, using several identities, stolen SS nos, and falsifying govt documents is a felony--should be investigated ASAP).

======================================================

THE OHAHAS LIVE LIKE BILLIONAIRES ON OUR DIME---NRO tallied what taxpayers are paying for the Ohaha's to live large on the taxpayers' dime: $1.4 billion per year (that we know of):

Air Force One ($181,757 per hour), executive chef ($100,000 per year), three full-time White House calligraphers ($277,050 per year for the trio), chief of staff to the president’s dog ($102,000 per year), Ohaha's royal motorcade ($2.2 million). $100 million alone for the African apology tour.

==========================================

$1.4 BILLION is the current annual cost of the White House — just in household expenses, not including US policy operations for which the WH exists-- administered by some 900 parasites--- policy staff recruited by Ohaha.

There's the $100 million trip to Africa not including the foreign aid billions he handed out to these oil-rich satraps. Serial Ohaha vacations cost taxpayers millions---- (the low estimate for Ohaha's last Hawaii vacay was $4 million, but the true cost is probably five times that); Mrs o spent $3900 PER NIGHT in the Grace Kelly suite in Ireland PLUS 30 more rooms for her entourage.

=======================================

*TAXPAYERS SUFFERED CANCELLATIONS--BUT ARE PAYING $7 MILLION FOR THE OBAMA FAMILY'S HEALTHCARE---NRO found the first family’s yearly health-care costs Americans $7 million; the reason why Boobamba himself was enrolled --and not his family.

===========================================================

More than $6 million is spent on the White House grounds each year. Transportation costs were a staggering $346 million last year. Mrs O has 24 staff members doing her bidding.....to get her ready to make an appearance.

=============================================

Mrs O wore her pricey diamond bangles (bought on a govt salary?) at a Texas DNC fund-raiser, attended by "tolerant and compassionate" Dems....raised big bucks to keep Mr O in office so he could work for "the poor." Her diamond Gothic cuff priced at $15,350 set with 2.17 carats in diamonds and the Quatrefoil bracelet at $11,800 set with 1.73 carats in diamonds. (Excerpt) Read more at houston.culturemap.com.

Mrs O wowed all the "tolerant and compassionate" Dems who hate the rich and support endless tax-paid programs "for the poor."
