It’s beginning to look a lot like . . . open enrollment. On December 15, the Affordable Care Act’s sign-up period will officially close for coverage that takes effect January 1.

The Biden administration has already begun crowing about how many people have signed up. In mid-November, Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra boasted that 3.4 million people had enrolled between November 1 and 19. “This may be a very good Christmas for a lot of Americans,” he said.

Days earlier, President Biden announced that enrollment was up 40% compared to last year, and that a majority of Americans could get coverage for “$10 a month or less.”
