Interview: Obamacare Sign-Ups Top 7 Million

AM 820 News anchor Roger P. Schulman spoke to ABC News correspondent Ann Compton about the Obamacare sign-ups.

After a surge of sign-ups on the last day for open enrollment, Obamacare met the White House’s original target of 7 million people signing up, President Obama said Tuesday. To be exact, 7,041,000 people picked a plan on exchanges. Press Secretary Jay Carney made note the surge in signups included a good percentage of young adults, providing a breakdown sufficient to ensure the marketplaces will effectively function, but didn’t offer any specific figures. President Obama addressed the milestone praising the achievement of overcoming lost weeks at the start of sign-ups last fall.
