Official: Obamacare on track to meet original goal


— After a surge of sign-ups on enrollment deadline day, Obamacare is now on track to hit the White House’s original target of 7 million people signing up, a senior administration official said Tuesday.

More than 4.8 million visits were made to and 2 million calls were made to the call center Monday, raising optimism that the goal would be met, the official said.

The administration is awaiting final numbers from the federal and state exchanges, the official said.
