Obamacare on Pace to Enroll . . . 828,000 Americans.


Open enrollment in the Obamacare health-insurance exchanges ends March 31 — in about 23 weeks.

If enrollment continues at the rate of the first week, by March 31, only 828,000 will complete enrollment.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, “Over 47 million nonelderly Americans were uninsured in 2012.”

So the exchanges are on pace to get 1.7 percent of the uninsured with completed enrollment for insurance.
