I guess he volunteered once again.
It’s not clear whether anyone besides Chad Henderson managed to actually sign up for ObamaCare. But it’s not implausible.
Entire states are reporting that no one signed up for ObamaCare and the media is obsessively covering Chad Henderson successfully signing up for ObamaCare. If Chad Henderson was one of 5 million or even 500,000 people, that wouldn’t be the case.
So we’ve got a hideously expensive, disastrous and illegal program all for the benefit of Chad Henderson. And how did Chad Henderson manage to accomplish what even MSNBC couldn’t?
Well Chad Henderson was a volunteer at Obama’s SuperPAC, OFA or Organizing for America. And that’s not surprising.
ObamaCare depends entirely on tricking twenty something males into signing up for it. If they don’t show up as sacrifices to the insurance companies, then the whole thing collapses.
It’s very likely that this bout of astroturfing was carefully planned right down to the demographics. Chad Henderson fits those demos perfectly. He’s being covered by the press, not because it picked him out of a crowd, but because there were OFA publicists working behind the scenes to feed the story to the media.
It’s doubtful that Chad Henderson had to work through a buggy website. He’s there to sell people his age on the myth that they’ll save money and get good healthcare by going through ObamaCare. Everything else was taken care of.
UPDATE: According to Dad, he didn’t even actually enroll.
Someone decided to actually live out the SNL Cold Open on ObamaCare.
Bill Henderson told me that both he and his son were interested in getting coverage, but that they had not enrolled in any plan yet, and to his knowledge, neither had his son. He also said that when they do enroll, getting the most coverage for the least money would be the goal, and that he expects that he and his son will get coverage under the same plan.
Bill told me that Chad had been looking into plans online. “He told me that there’s different plans. And we haven’t decided which plans to enroll in yet.”
