We're Still Waiting for the President to Sign Up for ObamaCare....
At his briefing yesterday, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney repeated that President Obama is still planning to make the symbolic gesture of signing up for ObamaCare.
Critics, however, continue to highlight the fact that Mr. Obama has not done so two and a half months after the launch of his signature legislative achievement.
She faulted the White House for letting this become a story by repeatedly promising that the president was soon going to log on to Healthcare.gov and enroll.
The White House points out that the deadline to sign up is March 31 so there is no hurry for the president to do it now.
Gretchen noted that the White House is usually very concerned with "PR and imagery" and would seemingly want to show people that "this program is so great even [Obama] signed up for it."
Powers disputed whether this really matters since Obama wouldn't actually use the health plan, arguing it is more of a political issue now that the president said he would sign up.
"If you're gonna come out and say you're gonna sign up for it, then sign up for it," she said.
