There's a good reason why Republicans are stepping up their fight against the Affordable Care Act. It's gaining in popularity as the website kinks get worked out.
On Sunday and Monday of this week alone, 29,000 people signed up:
About 29,000 people signed up for health insurance through the troubled HealthCare.gov website on Sunday and Monday, a number that is higher than the site's first month of operation in October, sources familiar with the numbers said on Wednesday.
In October, only about 26,000 signed up through the glitch-prone website, and intensive efforts are being conducted to work out the problems with HealthCare.gov.
While so many uninsured in Florida are being hurt because Rick Scott and the Republican controlled legislature refused to expand Medicaid, and because they've done everything they can to make access harder to come by, it's going to become harder and harder to ignore the ACA's success in other states.
The longer Republicans fight it, the worse it will get. For Republicans.
Just add lack of health care to the other reasons Rick Scott's Florida "paradise" is lagging behind the rest of the country.
