ObamaCare signups surge in early days to set new record

A record number of people signed up for ObamaCare in the first few days of open enrollment this year compared to the same period in previous years, several sources close to the process told The Hill.

The surge in sign-ups, which was confirmed by an administration official, comes despite fears from Democrats that enrollment would fall off due to the Trump administration's cutbacks in outreach and advertising.

On the first day of enrollment alone, Nov. 1, one source close to the process told The Hill that more than 200,000 people selected a plan for 2018, compared to around 100,000 last year. More than 1 million people visited healthcare.gov that day, compared to around 750,000 last year, the source said.

It is still early in the process and it is unclear how the final sign-up numbers will come out. Sign-ups early in the enrollment season are often people renewing their coverage, not new enrollees.

2. Ironically I think the sabotage efforts are backfiring

Because a lot of true Americans saw what he was doing so Obamacare info is spreading heavily by word of mouth thanks to the resistance.

3. Most 'regular Americans' may not like it because it isn't perfect,

But are also smart enough to know 2 things:

Healthcare that someone might have to stand in line for is better than no Healthcare at all (even if it is someone else and not them and so only effects them by proxy).

Wrecking something out of sheer malice isn't quite how we like to think of ourselves, and this what trump is doing leaves very very little argumentative wiggle room...are you aligned with Being A Dick (for Being A Dick's Sake)?...or do you want the neighbors to think youre better than that?
