Not only Republicans but most of the people believed that President Barack Obama’s ‘Obamacare’ will sooner or later fizz out. And then there were also reasons to believe that. First, the major website fiasco; and then Obama’s assurance to the people, ‘You can keep your insurance’. And all this was definitely working very well for the Republicans who were getting good chances to target the President and his administration. But the recent status reports on the health insurance reforms changes everything. According to the report last month nearly 1.2 million people signed up for insurance through Affordable Care Act. Altogether around 3.3 million people had chosen insurance plans through state and federal exchanges by the end of January. Along with the numbers increasing the positive side of all the enrollments was that most of them were between 18 to 25 years old and the majority claims that they didn’t had insurance policies before. President Barack Obama saying that the insurance policy is especially for those people who can’t afford it but actually needs it, is finally showing positive effects. And these positive effects would be working well for the Democrats but it looks like that now the Republicans definitely would have to think of something else to target Mr. President as the Affordable Health Care has finally taken off successfully.
