WASHINGTON (CBSNewYork/AP) –The deadline to sign up for health insurance under the Affordable Care Act passed at midnight Monday night. At 11 p.m., it appeared that the Affordable Care Act would meet its target of 7 million enrollees. But earlier Monday, millions of Americans were still struggling to enroll as they worked against the clock. As CBS 2’s Dick Brennan reported, in the Bronx Monday, there was a line to sign up.
Well, first off let me say that I'm sort of happy that people were able to fight off all of the lies, misinformation and fear mongering that was and still is, being spread around by various groups, TV "news" stations and radio hosts.
The Department of Health and Human Services reported Tuesday that more than 940,000 people signed up in February, bringing the total enrollment number to 4.2 million. That's well short of the unofficial goal of signing up 7 million by the end of open enrollment on March 31.

It's only bi-partisan because it would otherwise be a head anchor around the necks of the Dems in an election year. They shoved it down our throat and should suffer the consequences for it. It, as you said, was not a bi-partisan vote to pass this abomination.
