Democrats are now on a roll in their effort to get Americans to sign up for healthcare coverage through Obamacare, even though the party is still losing the popular vote in November.
The White House on Thursday announced the rollout of the health insurance exchange to more than 6 million people in 34 states.
It is also encouraging people to enroll through the state exchanges in some states.
President Barack Obama and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been urging Americans to get the healthcare coverage by Nov. 3, when they plan to unveil a bill to overhaul the nation’s healthcare system.
Republicans are not expected to support that effort.
But a new report from The Associated Press found that as of this week, Republicans were holding more than half of all the seats in the House.
The president is expected to announce his plan to reform the nation�s healthcare system during a Thursday evening address to the nation.
Democrats are pushing to get as many Americans as possible enrolled in the healthcare system by the end of the year.
That would be the first major overhaul of the healthcare law since the Affordable Care Act passed in 2010.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office says that if the ACA is implemented in full, the uninsured would drop from 23.7 million to 17.4 million by 2024.
The administration is hoping that the rollout will help people avoid waiting too long to sign-up for healthcare, which would increase costs for everyone, according to the AP report.
