Obamacare Enrollment Doubles

Health insurance is so hot this holiday season. Some 250,000 people selected plans through state and federal online exchanges in November—twice as many than did during Healthcare.gov’s glitchy first month, according to a report released Wednesday by the Department of Health and Human Services. But the total is way below the White House's goal of 3.3 million enrollees by December 31, although administration officials insisted they could still reach their goal of seven million enrollees by March. Additionally, more than 800,000 people have realized they are eligible for Medicaid.
