A Full Accounting

The number of enrollees into the Affordable Care Act that Obama has been crowing about may have been wildly exaggerated. How many of those who signed up were among the uninsured when the Affordable Care Act was signed into law? How many of those sign-ups were the previously medically-insured whose policies were deemed "substandard" by the administration and therefore cancelled due to Obamacare itself? How many folks were previously eligible for Medicaid but only just signed up? That seven million signees were needed and seven million one hundred thousand signed up according to Team Obama is quite the coincidence. Obamacare's popularity or the lack thereof will become manifest in the upcoming elections.
