Obamacare moves forward, As government shuts down – Visit HEALTHCARE.GOV

As most of Washington comes to a halt, President Obama is betting that Tuesday will be remembered in history for what he believes cannot be stopped.

“The Affordable Care Act is moving forward. That funding is already in place. You can’t shut it down,” Obama warned Republicans as the final hours before the shutdown deadline ticked away.

The day has arrived when millions of uninsured Americans have their first chance to sign up for what the administration says will be high-quality, affordable health coverage. That achievement is something presidents of both parties sought unsuccessfully for more than 60 years.

The coming months and years will show whether the new health-care law, commonly known as Obama­care, lives up to its aspirations. Those who sign up now, for instance, will not begin to receive benefits until January.
