Yes, President Barack Obama plans to up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act, dubbed Obamacare.

But no, he like millions of other Americans, has not done so yet.

“I don’t have an update for you on that," White House press secretary Jay Carney said Monday at his daily briefing. "I know that he will and has said that he will."

When he was asked if the registration could be open to the press, Carney responded: "I'll get back to you."

Obama does not need to sign up for healh care, of course. As president, he relies on his own White House team of doctors for medical care.
