Obamacare's vaunted success story, 21-year-old Chad Henderson, who became a Democratic sensation yesterday when he became "the first person" to sign up for Obamacare, turns out to be a six-year volunteer for Obama's main propaganda arm, Organizing For America. Not a crime by any means, but if he were a young Republican who had a horror story of his Obamacare signup process (of which there are many) and that story became widespread, he would be denounced as untrustworthy and agenda-driven, at minimum.
Henderson first got famous when he wrote on Twitter, "[E]nrolled in #Obamacare just now! Looking forward to having affordable healthcare for the first time!" He addressed this tweet to three different news organizations, two of which, so far, have interviewed him. In one of those interviews, Henderson said, "I'm happy that I could help out with the cause." What cause would that be, Chad?
Well, it turns out he didn't actually enroll in Obamacare. He filled out an application and figured out how much he'd have to pay, but he didn't enroll. Now he's claiming he never said he enrolled, but The Twitter doesn't lie:

It's curious that he addressed the tweet to three media outlets. He obviously knew that the media would be all too willing to spread his lie, dedicated leftists that they are. But could he have been paid by the Obama administration to tweet that? He's been a volunteer for Obama since 2007, according to his LinkedIn page (as reported at Breitbart.com) and appears in a video on his YouTube channel in which he is sitting in the front row of an Obama rally earlier this year. It sure sounds like he has connections. If he wasn't paid to propagate his lie, the administration doesn't mind using it to propagate theirs; Health and Human Services secretary Kathleen Sebelius retweeted his concocted claim.

Obamacare is dead on arrival. Obama and his minions are falling off a cliff over this. Many who went to the site (the few who could get on) found out it wasn't "free" and very expensive for young Americans. Obamacare is the building block for socialism in America and this is precisely why Obama spent over a year on putting it together rather than turn to the job engines in our country, our small businesses, to lift them up and get the economy rolling with jobs and company growth. When Obama made that decision I knew our country was headed down a deep dark hole.
