Obamacare Signups Fall Short of Expectations

Ad Feedback

Far fewer people are signing up for Obamacare than the White House anticipated.

So far, only 365,000 people have signed up using the federal HealthCare.gov website. That leaves the numbers more than 800,000 short of the government's estimate of 1.2 million by now.

California, which is running its own program, led the nation with more than 107,000 signups.

Oregon, also running its own market, had the lowest total with just 44 people enrolled.

Florida, the leader among states with federally run markets, had nearly 18,000 signups.

The slow start indicates the government may not reach its goal of getting 7 million to sign up by the end of March.

Obamacare is also fostering serious political problems for Democrats on Capitol Hill, with many saying the president hasn't done enough to fix it.
