More Hoosiers than expected are signing up for the Affordable Care Act. WISH-TV reports.
INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) – President Barack Obama reported on Thursday that the number of Obamacare enrollees is 8 million, a million more than the administration goal. We now know the Indiana numbers also exceeded the goal.
The state by state numbers are not yet published but they’re pretty easy to figure out, starting with the fact that the goal for Obamacare enrollees in Indiana was 100,000.
Congressman André Carson (D-7th District) says the Obama Administration would only share percentages, but those percentages show Indiana reaching 119 percent of its Obamacare goal, so that would translate to 119,000 enrollees.
The Congressman was also told that in Indianapolis, enrollees are at 121 percent of the goal.
“So I think Hoosiers understand this far more deeply than politicians give them credit for,” said Rep. Carson.
“The repeal debate is and should be over,” said President Obama on Thursday. “The Affordable Care Act is working.”
