Obamacare still popular with 11.5 million sign-ups

Obamacare remains popular despite threats to repeal it

(CNN) – Obamacare may be on the ropes in Congress, but it remains popular with Americans.

Federal data reveals more than 11-and-a-half million people have signed up for coverage through the federal marketplace healthcare.gov and the 12 state-based exchanges as of December 24th.

That’s nearly 300,000 more than the same time a year ago.

The data comes as president-elect Donald Trump and the Republican-led Congress call on repealing Obamacare as soon as Trump takes office.

However, critics, including some republicans, say a replacement plan must be ready before anything is repealed.
