Not bad for a healthcare program that Donald Trump say is terrible and that they are trying to shitcan and blame on Barack Obama?
Not all of the signup’s have been counted abd the numnber COULD BEAT last years numbers under Obama….
Democrats declared victory Thursday after the Trump administration announced that nearly 9 million people signed up for health insurance through the federal ObamaCare exchanges.
Last year, 9.2 million people signed up for coverage during an open enrollment period that was twice as long.
Approximately 8.8 million people enrolled during the six-week open enrollment period in the 39 states that use the federal healthcare.govwebsite, the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) said.
In the final week alone, more than 4.1 million people enrolled, more than 1 million of whom were new customers, the agency said.
“This is a remarkable result given the administration’s efforts to sabotage enrollment by gutting outreach, creating chaos and confusion, cutting off subsidies for low-income families and shortening the enrollment period by six weeks,” Rep. Frank Pallone Jr. (N.J.), the top Democrat on the House Energy and Commerce Committee, said in a statement.
“Today’s enrollment numbers make clear that the American people want access to high quality, affordable health insurance coverage, and they want Congress and the Administration to stop playing games with our health care system,” he continued.
In a tweet, CMS administrator Seema Verma said her agency had done a great job to “make this the smoothest experience for consumers to date.”….
