Health care enrollment short of goal
Washington (AP) -- President Barack Obama said about 4 million people have signed up for health insurance through federal or state marketplaces set up under his health care law. The White House has set an unofficial goal of 7 million enrollees by the end of March.
Obama urged his most vocal supporters Tuesday to help sign up as many people as possible for the federal health care law by that deadline.
Obama said at an organizing summit for Organizing for Action that people must be assured "this will pay off for them."
The advocacy group was founded by former Obama campaign aides and supporters.
Open enrollment under the federal law ends on March 31, after which people without insurance are subject to federal tax penalties.
