President Barack Obama on Monday told a conference call of progressive community organizers that “more than 100 million Americans” have successfully signed up for health insurance through the Affordable Care Act.
“In the first month alone, we’ve seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enrolled in the new insurance plans,” said the Commander in Chief, according to an audio recording posted by the Daily Mail. In the audio clip provided below, Obama does not correct his assertion that roughly one-third of the country enrolled in Obamacare-approved insurance plans in the month of October.
According to official government numbers released earlier this month, Obama’s estimation of his health care law’s success is wildly off the mark. According to those numbers, only 106,185 Americans enrolled in health insurance plans via healthcare.gov in the month of October.
