ObamaCare Numbers Boosted by Auto-Enrollment

While the 6.4 million federal ObamaCare enrollees clocked as of last week mark a significant increase from last December, about 70 percent of those customers are re-enrolling though the federal exchange — and more than 60 percent of those 4.5 million people were auto-enrolled in plans they had purchased last year. Critics of the health care program have noted that these customers will likely experience higher-than-average rate hikes — and the Obama administration actually agrees.
