Kathleen Sebelius, pictured here behind bars, won’t have to go to jail if she signs up for the exchange
Rep. Billy Long (R-MO) asked Kathleen Sebelius if she, as the point person for Obamacare, would tell the American public that she would go into the exchange if it is possible for her to do so.
She said it was illegal for her to join:
There is some grand news for Kathleen! It is legal for her to join the exchanges! Someone, tell her right away so she can sign right up for the horrible healthcare she is foisting on the American public.
The healthcare.gov site says that you only need to be a citizen who lives in the country and who is not in jail to join the marketplace.
Check out the wording from healthcare.gov:
Most people will be eligible for health coverage through the Health Insurance Marketplace.
To be eligible for health coverage through the Marketplace, you:
- must live in the United States
- must be a U.S. citizen or national (or be lawfully present)
- can’t be currently incarcerated
