Obamacare applicant misdials number, connects with ‘soul mate’ instead

A college student trying to enroll in Obamacare accidentally dialed the wrong phone number, instead reaching a love line where she met and fell in love with a trust fund baby related to Donald Trump.

Cornell University student Sally Tallyheiser Schmitt, 20, called America’s Hottest Talk Line by accidentally mixing up two digits. America’s Hottest Talk Line is 1-800-318-2956; the number to sign up for the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, is 1-800-318-2596. (If you don’t believe me, try it for yourself).

By simply swapping the 9 with the 5 in the last four digits, Schmitt connected with America’s Hottest Talk Line and curiously pressed 1, following a prompt to talk with interesting guys. She immediately  connected with Ronald Stump, a 24-year-old trust fund baby from upstate New York.

Stump’s family has ties to Donald Trump’s family. In the late 1960s a group of Trumps split with the rest of the family and changed their last names to Stump.

The family feud between the Stumps and the Trumps involved a decade-long disagreement on the best way to invest the family fortune, real estate or the bond market, and over what taste’s better, hard- or soft-shell tacos. The Stumps enjoyed the safety and reliability of bond investments and the delicacy of a tortilla-based Mexican meal. The Trumps lived for the high risk commercial real estate market and liked their tacos crunchy with extra hot sauce.

“Ronald swept me off my feet almost instantly; I feel like I’ve met my soul mate,” Schmitt said, noting that Stump once turned down a $1,000 dare to eat a crunchy taco. “He is just so passionate about bonds and soft-shelled tacos. Imagine his passion for more important things, like politics, religion and yours truly.”

Stump got engaged to Schmitt on Valentine’s Day. Schmitt said now that she is marrying into a wealthy family she will no longer need Obamacare.

President Barack Obama spokesman Jay Carney said the administration believes thousands of potential enrollees like Schmitt have misdialed the 800 number and spent hours flirting on the phone instead of taking care of their health insurance needs.

“Looking for love in all the wrong places can be a fun, stimulating process and the Obama administration is all for that,” Carney said. “At the same time, it’s also important for people to take care of their insurance needs. Life is about balance, people. Now pick up the phone and get signed up for Obamacare.”
