WASHINGTON — Some political news can only be reported on Election Day.
Campaigning for reelection last year, lavishly praising his Affordable Care Act, President Obama promised us, “if you like your plan, you can keep your plan.”
That was then, now is now.
After several million people began receiving cancellation notices from their insurance companies, all of a sudden those voters realized that the president had broken his promise.
Doing penance and seeking redemption, Obama announced, moments ago, that he is canceling his own health care plan. “I just want to be like ordinary folk,” he explained to a solitary reporter.
“I'll just go bare,” the president continued. “You know, SR, I really like being bare with Michelle, and she likes being bare with me. That's how Malia and Sasha came along.”
Press Secretary Jay Carney told reporters at his daily briefing that even though the president will no longer have health care insurance, he will be fully clothed in the White House, most of the time anyway.
