Yesterday, House Speaker John Boehner went online and signed up for Obamacare. (Yes, really.)
Maybe it was a publicity stunt that backfired -- all we know is John Boehner is now another Affordable Care Act success story. (According to this report, he's probably getting a pretty good deal.)
This is one to share far and wide -- let folks know how Obamacare is working, even for one of its biggest opponents:
-- USA Today: Under Obamacare, the growth in health care costs is at a three-year low.
-- Cape Gazette: A Rehoboth man successfully signed up for health insurance, and he's going to save $10,000 a year.
-- Los Angeles Times, on all the myths about Obamacare: "Don't buy the hype. The numbers tell an entirely different story."
So, the next time someone tells you that Obamacare isn't working, send them one of those stories, or just tell them to go ask Speaker Boehner.
Hope you have a great weekend,
