As Commander and Chief of the military the President gets his healthcare from the military just like every other president has done. But he also signed up for insurance. President Obama enrolled in the federal health-care insurance exchanges, selecting a bronze-tiered insurance plan on the D.C. marketplace.
For weeks, Republicans have pressured Obama to sign up for coverage under his own law – even though some acknowledge that he didn’t need to.
“I’m glad he did it,” Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-Utah) said in an interview.“I’m not going to take a cheap shot at him for signing up. It really wasn’t necessary, but if he didn’t do it we would all bark at him.”
Chaffetz added:“He’s the president of the United States. His health care is a little different than the rest of us. We get that.”
You're an idiot Carol!

I'm sure that a back woods hating racist "PIG" like you isn't familiar with the expression "Planning is essential to progress". So the idiots on the right [LIKE YOU ]decided to copycat and choose Herman Cain proving once again not only your degree of stupid but just how desperate and phony the Republicans can be. He was your front runner, that is until he was outed as a liar, a misogynist, having numerous relation ships. So you see you morons on the right can't even imitate worth a sh1t, But even with all of those traits he was still far smarter than Bush. You and your party are Americas embarrassment. Hypocrisy and lies are your bread and butter.

How anyone can even believe the precise 7.1 million number without knowing if it's even true, much less how many are actually insured that weren't insured before is beyond me.
How anyone can trust this administration any further than they can throw them is beyond me.
Everything is beyond you Carol. What's beyond me is how any rational person would trust access to health care to big insurance whose only concern is profit margins.

So you would prefer that American's access to healthcare be controlled by corporate entities whose only concern is profit margins? That's totally idiotic! Healthcare should be a fundamental right for all Americans and not be controlled by back office pencil pushers who decide whether you get needed care based on their bottom line.
Single payer would also be good for businesses as they wouldn't have to worry about the expenses involved in covering their employees and could put that money into expansion or increasing salaries.

So, as a right whiner, you think it is a good thing for companies to ship jobs overseas & give corporations a tax break for doing it.

NEWS FLASH: The Palestinians are the oppressed not the oppressors. Read a history book once in a while.
It always amazes me that the same morons who get their panties in a twist when some Mexicans cross the border to pick crops or clean hotel rooms think that the Palestinians shouldn't have had issues with boatloads of Europeans coming in to take over the country where they've lived for centuries.

Nice...the democrat VP and Senate Majority Leader are racists. LOL
Sooo in a sense you are admitting that you are a racist pig only interested in finding others that you can pretend are as racist as you are so you can feel better about yourself? Is that it loser? More and more you are coming off as clown.

Kind of surprised you were the one who posted this. Do you think the Obama administration has made it easier for people like this to manipulate the system?
If not, what measures has this administration put into place to deter this kind of abuse?
No Carol, there's no evidence whatsoever that the Obama administration has made it easier to manipulate the system. There's always going to be those that cheat, that's just how things are. But the fact remains that this kind of fraud occurs in less than 1% of cases involving public assistance.

There are 33 housing programs run by four different Cabinet departments. There are 21 programs providing food or food-purchasing assistance administered by three different federal departments and one independent agency. There are eight different health care programs administered by five separate agencies in HHS. Six Cabinet departments and five independent agencies oversee 27 cash or general assistance programs. Altogether, seven different Cabinet departments and six independent agencies each administer at least one anti-poverty program.

Should it cost almost a trillion dollars a year to fight poverty?
If one includes state and local welfare spending, government at all levels will spend more than $952 billion this year to fight poverty.
This is the kind of waste some of us talk about in reducing entitlement spending.
Sure Carol, just keep pushing right wing libertarians like Michael Tanner of the Cato institute. Let's take a closer look at some of his "research";
• Right-wing media promoted a flawed study that claims it is more lucrative for low-income Americans to accept government benefits than take low-paying jobs, a notion that reveals the conservative sphere's ignorance on how anti-poverty programs work.
On August 19, 2013 the libertarian Cato Institute released a report titled "The Work Versus Welfare Trade-Off: 2013." The new study updates a much-maligned version by the same name released in 1995. Both reports claim to analyze welfare benefit levels nationwide and state-by-state and push the misleading notion that "[t]he current welfare system provides such a high level of benefits that it acts as a disincentive for work."
Breitbart.com was among the first right-wing outlets to promote the study, arguing that in New York state, a "mother of two is eligible for $38,004 in welfare benefits -- a sum more than the annual salary of a New York entry-level school teacher." The Washington Examiner joined in as well, with an uncritical review detailing the study's claims that a proverbial mother of two would be better off on government assistance than she would be working for as much as $15 per hour in some states.
On Fox News' Your World, host Neil Cavuto brought on the lead author of the study, Cato Institute senior fellow Michael Tanner, to discuss his findings in more depth. What followed was three minutes of self-promotion that forwarded the tired and debunked right-wing narrative against government assistance and the minimum wage. From Your World:
• Unfortunately, neither Cato's Tanner nor his counterparts in the right-wing media seem to have any clue how anti-poverty programs function.
The argument that government assistance and benefits are too generous and thus drive recipients out of work has been thoroughly debunked by experts, and Tanner's calculations have been the subject of scrutiny in the past. As the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities highlighted nearly two decades ago, Tanner is still basing his calculations on the assumption that recipients take full advantage of every single benefit program that is potentially available to them. From CBPP:
Cato's conclusions are striking. They also are inaccurate -- the Cato report is replete with analytic errors. For the nation in general and for California in particular, the report paints a misleading picture both of the amount of benefits most [Aid to Families with Dependent Children] families receive and of the supposed advantages from relying on welfare rather than working.

Just a heads up on Benghazi.
Michael Morrell is finally going to have to testify under oath that he either did or did not manipulate the CIA's talking points to deceive the public in order for Obama to have a better chance at winning reelection.
There are nine CIA accounts on the ground who said it was a planned and organized attack having no resemblance to a protest.
So if Morrell raises his right hand and either tells the truth or lies under oath, all heck is going to break lose.
This is not over. Despite the liberal media telling some of you it is.
It took two years to get Nixon. Why would some of you think this administration covering up a terrorist attack for political aspirations and, thus, guilty of subversion of democracy would take any less time?
It is over Carol; Morell has testified and has reaffirmed the conclusions of the Senate Select Committee's report on Benghazi. There was no cover-up. That horse is dead Carol; you can stop flogging it already.

Do you know the difference between a $400 billion Medicare Prescription Drug Modernization Act to help the elderly afford life-saving medications that was supported by both parties and a multi-trillion dollar health care law that was passed by a strictly partisan vote creating unnecessary confusion and upheaval so one president can have his "legacy"?
Medications for the elderly - passed by both parties -$400 billion.
ObamaCare - strictly Democratic vote using back room deals -$2 trillion and counting.
We won't even go into the lies and deception or if it's even going to work or not. According to Harry Reid, it's just the first step toward single-payer. They have to create enough confusion so we will surrender.
Surely, even you can see the difference.
.
Wrong again Carol! Medicare part D gave drug benefits to wealthier seniors who didn't really need it and put in place a "donut hole" that made it more difficult for middle class elderly to afford their medications. And no liar, it wasn't bipartisan; the vast majority of Republicans, 207 voted for it and the vast majority of Democrats, 195 voted against it. The difference is that once it passed and the problems with the legislation arose, Democrats worked to fix those problems unlike the Republicans who just wanted to repeal the ACA.
The Republicans weren't going to vote for anything that came out of this White House dumbass, they took a blood oath to block and obstruct anything even if it was their own damned idea in the first place.
