Administration says 5 million people have signed up for Obamacare

The Obama administration announced Monday that 5 million people had signed up for health plans through federal and stage exchanges, just two weeks before the deadline for consumers to obtain insurance or pay a fine.

In a blog post, Marilyn Tavenner, administrator of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services, pointed to a “weekend wave of consumers signing up for new coverage and bringing enrollment nationwide to more than 5 million."

However, the administration originally projected that 7 million people would sign up for Obamacare by the end of March, a goal that is now very much in doubt. And the administration's revised target of 6 million enrollees, adjusted in the wake of the botched rollout of healthcare.gov, is no guarantee either.
