“The Boy Who Cried Obamacare" - Media Darling Exposed As Fraud

In what comes as a very small shock, the liberal media, who jumped at the chance to cover ANYONE who was actually able to sign up for Obamacare in order to try to put a gloss on this horrible thing, have made fools of themselves with a recent gaffe concerning one Chad Henderson. Mr. Henderson was “chosen” by the White House as a success story to share with the media – showing that hey, any ol’ American can sign up and it’s not so bad. Said the Chadster, earlier this week:

“It is such a huge honor,” Henderson, a student with a part-time job at a day care center, said of the flood of attention. “The fact that the White House shared my story and Enroll America asked me for some help is a major blessing to me.”

Hand picked by Obama himself, perhaps!

Except…it’s all made up garbage! Reason Magazine exposes this White House-sponsored fraud. Here is the basic background:

Chad’s story was tweeted out by the official Obamacare Twitter feed. It was promoted to the media by Enroll America, a health-care activist group headed by a former White House communications staffer, as a sign of Obamacare’s success. Henderson told reporters at multiple news outlets that after a three-hour wait to sign up online, he enrolled around 3 a.m. Tuesday morning in an unsubsidized private insurance plan that would cost him about $175 a month. He also said that his father enrolled in separate coverage plan that would cost about $250 a month after factoring in the subsidies for which his father qualified on his approximately $24,000 annual income.

Chad’s decision to purchase his own, separate plan might surprise some. A monthly premium of $175 would represent about 30 percent of his pre-tax take home pay—about $583 a month on the $7,000 part-time income he claimed. And he could have chosen to be covered by his father’s plan, which, under the Affordable Care Act, would have been required to cover dependents up to the age of 26. Chad said his father encouraged him to be covered under his own plan, even though the cost was higher. “He’s old school, so he wants me to take responsibility,” Chad told The Huffington Post.

That's because they can't do sh.i.t

That's because they can't do sh.i.t but steal from you, while lessoning you on how much better they know than you do.

So, fraud becomes the realm they dwell in, 24/7.

It's his "job to post political stuff" on social media?

Quote from his Facebook Page:

"Yes, I do post political stuff on here and other social media networking sites. But it's for a good reason. For one, I think it's good if people get some insight into the world they live in. Secondly, I work for and organization that pays me quarterly to posts(sic) the political stuff as 'advocacy' (so it's kind of my job)."

for his sake, i sure hope he

for his sake, i sure hope he was being sarcastic, but i would not put it past people to constantly think up manipulative ways to mislead or lie.....to trick people into falsely giving their support to give the impression that something cant be all bad, not when you have one or two folks defending it......WHAT IF.....WHAT IF.......if government "associates" DIDNT do these things, and infact, left to its own devices, NO ONE would be defending it, maybe perhaps because the thing in question shows us NOTHING to get excited about but for the negative outcome, where would a government get justification for passing something that garners NO support from the people, WHERE?

Not only that, what would that mean for a government eligibility if they are constantly not given support, oh yes, it is in a governments best interest to make people see people support the government, the honest extent of it doesnt need to be true, well, unless its in their favour, when its not, they will no doubt give the impression, throwing away the truth aswell as our trust

If they were'nt being the coniving bedfellows of MSM, this comment would likely not be needed.......so theres one way to stop getting negative feedback Mr "government", just start listening and doing as your people ASK, instead of waiting until they start demanding their "concerns" not being ignored....letting it reach this stage makes it ten times worse, as you make light of a bigger problem then the original complaint, the ultimate concern, the few dictating to the many with signs of tyranny, and a passion for violence

Without Reason Magazine, The Fraud Would Have Succeeded

How many other frauds out there have the media failed to catch and expose?

I want to see

Just how many more they can catch. Reason Mag is getting a ton of exposure over this so I hope it becomes an ongoing investigation.

Um

I went to the "compare plans" part and it took me 5 minutes. It's the actual applying for an insurance plan that people are having trouble with.

How did the first part take this kid 3 effin hours is the question?

Either way, spot on - it's pathetic!
