On Monday, after the Healthcare.gov website was reportedly fixed and visited by nearly a million people, House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) evidently felt compelled to try and piss in President Obama's cereal somehow and elected to do so by sharing another supposed Obamacare horror story.
Via his Twitter account, Boehner posted "I couldn't believe what I was being told," said a dad who learned #ObamaCare wouldn't cover his baby."
The story of Cornelius Kelly, a Long Island resident that claims he was told that he would have to buy a separate health insurance policy for his 18-month-old baby, however, is a big fat lie.
There is a very simple reason why Kelly did not receive coverage for his 18-month-old daughter: He forgot about her. Kelly placed on his application that he had three children instead of four.
Kelly conveniently neglected to mention this when he called the New York Post to complain that his daughter was being denied coverage.
It should also be noted at this point that Kelly had previously run unsuccessfully for a Suffolk County seat as a Conservative Party member.
There was absolutely no reason Kelly's Obamacare horror story should have ever been treated as fact.
