So, the Obama administration needs to sign up – four million? Five? Six? …LOTS – of people tomorrow if they hope to hit their original target numbers. Let me do some spoilers:
- The Obama administration is not going to hit its target numbers for federal exchange signups.
- The state exchanges are not going to hit their numbers, either. The best percentage that any state exchange has hit, to date, is less than 23%.
- Those numbers from the last link are likely to go up. They are not going to go up insanely.
- And there is no certainty about what happens next.
