President Obama marked this as the biggest signup day ever for Obamacare.

“Yesterday was the biggest day ever for Healthcare.gov. More than 670,000 people signed up to get covered, and more are signing up by the day,” Obama said Friday during his introductory remarks at his year-end press conference.

The Department of Health and Human Services had announced Thursday evening that the open enrollment deadline for Jan. 1 coverage had been extended two business days, citing “extraordinary” demand.

The enrollment boost comes as Republicans are working on their plan to repeal the Affordable Care Act in the new Congress next year, with GOP leaders signaling it will be their top priority January.

    I guess no one believes that the GOP are capable of destroying the ACA…It just amazes me that these people just don’t get it…I really don’t get it…I see the interviews, I hear these Trumpers, and I still cannot believe what I am seeing and hearing from the people…I have grandkids, of whom I want them to be able to live out their lives, happily, and without fear…Trump squashes all that for now…I don’t see it any other way…DESPAIR…REPENT…HOPELESSNESS…whew…glad that is out of my system…now…Fuckabunchoftrumpers…and onward… https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8af1dc74cc56a399c0364df0115d2bba4e937a41253eea243cbd0eafbc356035.jpg

    It drives me crazy when the media run surveys about Obamacare. They poll people who don’t know what it is! They only know the conservative lies about it.

    People who actually have Obamacare overwhelmingly like it.

  • I got covered again by the ACA!
    Why? Because the ACA was written for the no-subsidy self-employed (consultants). I’ll be grandfathered into something with other 20 M to 30 M covered by ObamaCares.

    And ‘the ACA reduces federal deficits by $1.5 T+’-CBO plus $1.1 T+ in Medicare savings! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/a70b3291560cf9c3cd21dbca66ca8cb79296f82e2ada833802891663f71dd093.jpg

        The same ignorant fools who hate “Obamacare” just love the “Affordable Care Act” as they themselves have attested.

        • whatthe46

          and even voted for tRump at the risk of hoping it remains, and are now crying about it.

    That many more people to blame Republicans when Republicans cut their healthcare. Not sure how Republicans are going to blame it on Obama, Hillary and Black Lives Matter, but you know they are gonna try…
