Will President Obama Have to Pay the Tobacco Surcharge on His Health Insurance Premium?

President Obama signed up for Obamacare today.

One key question is whether he still uses tobacco and will have to pay a substantial premium surcharge of up to 50%. Byron York:
Critical that Obama really has quit smoking. If not, insurer 'can charge a tobacco surcharge of up to 50% of your total premium…'
The President said in September that he quit cigarettes six years ago. But, as of four years ago he said he still had occasional failures.

Lollers, TD - but remember, it was all symbolic (i.e., another lie). Sorta like everything else he does.

Heh. Not real, indeed, Max. He didn't sign his family up. Even symbolism only goes so far for political high flyers.
