I logged onto ObamaCare’s website and opened an account!
It was pretty easy. Imagine my shock.
Once in and claiming to be a Floridian where I do have a mail drop, I thought I would see what my socialist medicine premium might be, but I got distracted by “chat.”
With amazingly little wait, I had an online “chat” with an ObamaCare
commissar representative. I had never been able to pin down with certainty if I will be forced to enroll in the ObamaCare nonsense.
I file annual 1040s from my Mexican mountaintop. Plus, I’m still a U.S. citizen. And, of course, ObamaCare is basically a tax, a redistributive one. Take from the successful and give to the unsuccessful and dysfunctional.
Happily, I was told that, due to living permanently in Mexico, I am home-free and not required to buy into this socialized medicine that I would never use. Only folks who live in the United States are on the hook.
In a related matter, recent news stories reveal that the ObamaCare website contract was given to a company connected to an old chum of Michelle’s from university days on a no-bid basis. Smells like Chicago, doesn’t it?

(Note: Half an hour later, I tried to log into my ObamaCare account again. “The system is down at the moment. Try again later,” I was told. Two hours later, the same response. Clearly, I entered the first time at a rare moment of opportunity.)
