  •  That seems really optimistic... (1+ / 0-)

    Considering it was around 20k in October. Granted, it SHOULD be more this month, but enough to break 500k? I'm guessing not.

    •  I'm guessing more like 300K - 350K this month (1+ / 0-)

      ...but it should easily double to an additional 600K in December at this point.

        If the law actually hits the target in the end, or at least gets pretty close, then no one will really care any more about all this crap in the last month... Suddenly the whole "repeal Obamacare" actually becomes "Throw 7M (plus all the Medicaid signups) off of health insurance", rather than just something theoretical.

    •  The correct figure for October > 100k (1+ / 0-)

      for HealthCare.gov + state exchanges = 106,757

      (not just 20k) (Brainwrap and ACAsignups.net will confirm this.)
      (If we include Medicaid 499,018 Americans obtained ACA insurance.)

      I believe we will hit 500,000 private sign-ups by the end of November.
      Not counting any Medicaid, which is separate.
      .
