Obama Claims 6 Million Signed Up for Health Insurance Under ACA. Kessler of The Washington Post Says Don’t Believe It.

‘Don't believe President Barack Obama's claim that 6 million people have signed up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act, warns Glenn Kessler, author of the influential Fact Checker blog in The Washington Post.

Kessler told "The Steve Malzberg Show" on Newsmax TV that the figure is based on combining a figure of 2.1 million for people who have selected plans on state and federal exchanges, and 3.9 million for Medicaid.’

‘"[It's] somewhat similar to saying you put something in your shopping cart at Amazon and that's what they're counting, all of the things that are in the shopping cart. They don't know how many people actually pushed the button and ordered the item."‘ - WashPo's Fact Checker: Don't Believe 6M People Signed Up for Obamacare,, 01/17/2014
