With several days left to go before open enrollment ends on March 31, the administration has met its target. The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office estimated that Obamacare enrollment would hit six million by the end of its enrollment period. Although the CBO initially projected a seven million enrollment figure, that number was revised down after technological issues plagued the insurance marketplaces’ websites this past fall.

Just ten days ago, the Obama administration announced that enrollments had hit five million — meaning that the pace of enrollment has significantly picked up recently, and a million Americans enrolled in less than two weeks. The White House has always anticipated a last-minute surge in enrollment, since previous efforts to enroll Americans in government-run health care programs have demonstrated that people typically wait until the last minute to sign up.

Although open enrollment technically ends in four days, there will be a few more weeks for some Americans to sign up. On Wednesday, the administration announced that the people who have experienced technological difficulties will be allowed to complete their enrollment in April.

Knowing the truth is hard business, I've tried my best to confirm that the CBO estimated the 7M enrollees by the end of March 2014 unsuccessfully; I searched for over 50 minutes with negative results however I did find this prediction:


To include this explanation from J. Carney:


Please set the record straight and post the 7M prediction by the CBO?

Great research PN, thank you. I just don't understand why politicians just leave you hanging in the wind sometimes. If that were me being asked the question I would have elaborated that view 7 million enrollees by the end of March 2014 just as the CBO estimated in May 2013. End of that debate.

now the rest of the story

This is old news! This story was written in January and the information is outdated. Obamacare is the law of the land and it's here to stay. Have a good night.

if it was as good as they want you to believe it is they wouldn't keep postponing the bad parts of it until after the elections. when the cost really kick in, then say how great it is.

I am at the point that I have conceded that the pro-obamacare advocates will continue to latch on to any semblance of a positive statistic and continue to discount the naysayers regardless of the FACTS of the situation. It seems that the 13% that actually benefit from this travesty far outweigh the burden and hardship it has placed on the other 87%. Jimmy you are right about one thing; the train will keep on rolling but I strongly suspect that the train wreck is close behind leaving the taxpayer to clean up the mess.

Ok , PN since this is the law of the land the people want to know this and I'm sure you will agree because you seek the truth too.

1. How many of the 6M enrollees previously had insurance and was forced into Obamacare?

2.How many have paid?

3.How many are the young and healthy that are needed for it to work?

4.How many were on Medicaid?

5.How many got subsidies?

These are the 5 questions that you have to answer before you can how many new people came into the system.

Thanks in Advance!
