White House now boasts that more than 10 million Americans have signed up for Obamacare- but only after Medicaid enrollees and PRISON INMATES are added

    Hit the 7 million target earlier this week but now Medicaid expansions mean that an additional 3 million will be added
    More than a dozen states pushing to have inmates added to the list of those who can qualify for Medicaid, and therefore Obamacare, coverage
    Prisoners already have their healthcare covered while in jail by state and local taxpayer dollars
    Under the proposed plan, that cost would be split with the federal government and coverage extended until after they leave jail

Three million lower-income Americans have enrolled in the Medicaid program for the poor so far during the rollout of U.S. President Barack Obama's healthcare reform law, the administration announced on Friday.

That brings the number of people who have signed up for both public and private health coverage to 10 million since the October 1 launch of Affordable Care Act.

A percentage of those new enrollees includes prisoners in cash-strapped states that have decided to rely on Obamacare for their inmates’ health insurance needs.

At the pace we're going, the whole country and Canada will have signed up by Thanksgiving.
