During Ed Henry’s opening remarks at the White House Correspondents Dinner Ed Henry brought up Obamacare to cheers from members of the mainstream media in attendance. Ironically, the cheer came in the middle of Henry talking about how the White House doesn’t provide a clean place for new moms to pump breast milk even though Obamacare makes employers do so. The punch line didn’t receive such a warm response from the crowd.
It mandates that employers with more than 50 workers provided private space for mothers. There are more than 50 journalists in the White House press corp. The problem was our White House is not our employer, we are not on their payroll. At least some of us are not…
Is it any wonder that Obama can’t stand new media?
Watch to the end. For a minute I thought Obama did his signature “flip the bird while touching the face” but I think that was his pinky. I guess he’s finally figured out that the internet never forgets.
