As Twitchy reported, Obamacare poster boy Chad Henderson apparently hasn’t enrolled in a plan, despite making claims to the contrary.
Notice that in the above tweet, it clearly says that Henderson and his father purchased health insurance.
Henderson also trumpeted the news on Facebook:
Henderson knows full-well what “enrolled” means. He just doesn’t care. He’s got vacation to think about:
Will the media outlets who giddily reported Henderson’s signup success issue retractions? We’re still waiting.
WaPo’s Sarah Kliff, at least, has acknowledged that maybe Henderson wasn’t being as up-front as he could’ve been:

Welp, that’s good enough for her!
