Despite unimaginable opposition to the success of Obamacare, the affordable healthcare law enrolls 1,349,562 applicants on the federal website, healthcare.gov. The one million enrolled milestone occur three days before sign up deadline for Jan.1 coverage.

Enrollment rate is on course for 5 to 7 million approved applicants registering by March 31, 2014. Widespread coverage on the healthcare exchange is inevitable. This holds true whether the 1.9 million applicants who have completed their applications, but have not chosen coverage plans, choose their plans before enrollment deadline (Dec. 23) or not.

The rate of enrollment tripled back to back in numbers since the disappointing rollout number of 106,000 at the end of October. By November 30, the number increased to 365,000 and by Dec.18, completed enrollment stood at 918,377.

"Over half a million Americans have enrolled through Healthcare.gov in the first 3 weeks of December." President Obama said at his final press conference of the year.

President Obama is now addressing income inequality and minimum wage to enhance a population instilled with affordable and quality health care access. Only mischievous and inefficient intelligence would view a healthy and wealthy populous as unAmerican, as the president's opposition declares daily.
