Biden: 'We May Not Get to 7 Million' by Obamacare Deadline

Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged on Wednesday that it will be hard to reach the target on the number of people signing up for health insurance by a looming March 31 deadline for Obamacare enrollment.

The Congressional Budget Office had originally forecast that 7 million people would sign up for insurance, many with help from subsidies provided under the Affordable Care Act, commonly called Obamacare.

But the program got off to a rough start in October when a website used to shop for insurance plans failed to work for almost two months. The nonpartisan CBO recently trimmed its enrollment forecast for 2014 to 6 million.

Biden, on his way to a Democratic National Committee fundraiser in Minneapolis, spoke with a small group of people in the city who are working to help others sign up for insurance, and thanked them for their work.

"We may not get to seven million, we may get to five or six, but that's a hell of a start," Biden said, according to a pool report of his meeting.

The Obama administration said last week that 3.3 million people have enrolled in private Obamacare health plans between Oct. 1 and Feb 1.

The deadline for 2014 coverage is March 31, and the administration and allied groups are pushing to convince more uninsured people in big cities to sign up.

Biden dishes on romance and talks skincare with Rachael Ray
Published: 3/27 10:15 pm

WASHINGTON (AP) — Vice President Joe Biden is dishing to talk show host Rachael Ray in a last minute push for health care sign-ups and also takes a moment to talk about his love for wife.

Biden mentioned to Ray that he proposed to his wife four times before she finally said yes. He insists it's important to keep romancing Jill Biden because he loves her more than she loves him.

He said he uses a men's version of Clinique skin cream at his wife's instruction.

The appearance is part of the White House's efforts to get young people to enroll for insurance.

The interview airs March 31 — the last day of open enrollment. Excerpts were released in advance.

She's disgusting. But really, Joe? Who cares about his skin care routine?

Or how many times he asked his wife to marry him. Or that he loves her MORE. Joe would dry hump a biker chick before he found his mind, because he lost it.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?
