“A couple of years ago, I got elbowed in the lip pretty hard and needed 12 stitches, so even the President isn’t immune to injuries. But in all seriousness, nearly 2 million Americans went to the emergency room last year because of a sports-related injury, so I can’t overstate how important it is for everyone — and especially athletes — to make sure they’ve got health insurance. A recent study shows that a broken arm could cost the average person nearly $7,700 if they’re uninsured. A sprained ankle could cost you $2,290 without insurance. So, this is a big deal if you take a hard hit”, answered President Obama. ()

The White House confirmed that it was President of the United States of America, Barack Obama, who was personally answering the question from the Quora users.
