Let’s Celebrate Medicaid’s Success

Jan. 3 (Bloomberg) -- So far, Obamacare’s biggest success is the one that neither Democrats nor Republicans seem to want to talk about.

As of Jan. 1, more than 2 million people had signed up for insurance through the Affordable Care Act’s insurance marketplaces -- the vast majority of them in December. That’s less than the 3.3 million the administration had projected would sign up by the new year. But those projections didn’t foresee that would be an abject disaster in its first two months of life. The surge in December enrollments doesn’t make up for Obamacare’s catastrophic launch. But it shows is, at this point, working.
