Obama Claims More Than 100 Million Americans Have Enrolled in ObamaCare

'In the first month alone, we've seen more than 100 million Americans already successfully enroll'

Obama flubs during health care conference call with community organizers, claims 'more than 100 MILLION Americans' have enrolled (The Daily Mail)

President Barack Obama told a conference-call audience of progressive volunteers on Monday evening that 'more than 100 million Americans' – in a nation of less than 314 million – have successfully signed up for health insurance via the Affordable Care Act.

And at a time when his signature legislative initiative's website has made the White House the butt of jokes, the website hosting the conference call was plagued with its own connection errors and other malfunctions.

A weary-sounding Obama made his gaffe during the call, hosted by Organizing For Action, the nonprofit successor to his campaign organization Obama For America. The group claimed 200,000 people managed to listen, aided by an RSVP process that included a fundraising solicitation.
