For the past week, Pat Toomey’s been plastered all over whatever device you use to consume political bloviating, crowing about his wife’s failed attempt to obtain health insurance through Obamacare. The Daily News’s Chris Brennan debunked that canard today with a great little scoop.
Toomey’s broadcast left out one significant piece of information: Despite the initial website difficulty, the Toomeys were able to sign up for health-care insurance through an exchange.
Kris Toomey started trying to sign up on Dec. 2 and was successful on Dec. 11, three days before her husband’s radio address, according to his spokeswoman.
Oh, snap. Here’s hoping this doesn’t stay buried in the 21st paragraph of a page seven column in today’s Daily News.
