Congressman Young Comments on November Obamacare Numbers
Washington, D.C. - Congressman Don Young today issued the following statement after the Department of Health and Human Services announced that 260,000 Americans have registered for Obamacare in the month of November.
“While the Administration says their second month Obamacare enrollment numbers have drastically improved, in reality they have fallen flat on their face in terms of reaching their initial two month enrollment goal of 800,000 people. The federal navigator responsible for assisting Alaskans through the enrollment process, Enroll Alaska, is also reporting less than 400 Alaskan enrollees at a time when initial estimates for the month of October were approximately 4,000 individuals.”
“These results are clear; the Administration is not equipped to run the infrastructure needed to sign up for the healthcare exchange, let alone manage the implementation of the entire law. But this is about much more than a failed website, this is about a failure to listen to the American people and the negative impacts this law with have on Alaskan businesses and families.”
