Health Care Enrollment Seeing "Healthy" Boost

There is a healthy boost in the number of Americans signing up for insurance on healthcare.gov.
There is a healthy boost in the number of Americans signing up for insurance on healthcare.gov.

But the total is still well below the Obama Administration's original expectations. U.S. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified before Congress. Her department says about 260,000 Americans signed up for insurance in November. That is more than double the number in October, bringing the two-month total to nearly 365,000. It is a major improvement, but far from the original goal of 1.2 million. A new CBS/New York Times poll shows the health care law remains very unpopular, although the numbers are improving. 

"The initial launch of healthcare.gov was flawed and I believe strongly in accountability and are obligation to be good stewards of taxpayer dollars," Sebelius said.

"Millions of Americans are being harmed by this law. My constituents do not trust the administration when it comes to the Affordable Healthcare Act," Pennsylvania GOP Congressman Joe Pitts said.

Americans who want coverage on January 1st have until December 23rd to choose a health care plan from the marketplace.
