Subject: Republican attacks on Obamacare blowing up in their faces.
LOL. What a Tar-Baby this is going to be.
'Trump's plan to handicap Obamacare seems to have backfired as early sign-ups set new record
• The number of ObamaCare sign-ups during the first week of enrollment has doubled since last
year, setting a new record high.
• President Donald Trump has previously made various cuts to subsidies and outreach funding and
has shortened the enrollment period in an effort to "repeal" ObamaCare on his own.
• So far, his efforts seem to have been ineffective.
Obamacare sign-ups in the first few days of the open enrollment period this year have far outpaced
those during the same period in previous years, and despite President Donald Trump's efforts to
diminish the enrollment period and slash outreach, the number of sign-ups during the period this
year has set a new record.
The number of people signing up on HealthCare.gov in the first week of enrollment is "roughly
double" what it was in previous years, a source told Politico. On November 1 alone, which was the
first day of the enrollment period, 200,000 signed up for a 2018 plan, which itself was double the
amount of first-day sign-ups last year according to The Hill.'
