Jimmy Fallon Mocks Obama's Obamacare "Victory Lap"

Jimmy Fallon was at it again on the "Tonight Show" this time mocking Obama's "victory lap" speech regarding the whopping 7 plus million people who have allegedly signed up for Obamacare.  To put that into perspective, the USA has a population of between 315 and  317 million people. This is what he said:

“That’s right, the White House said that it surpassed its goal for people enrolled in ObamaCare,” Fallon said. “It’s amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory and fine people if they don’t do it. And then keep extending the deadline for months. It’s like a Cinderella story. It’s just a beautiful thing. You make everyone do it. Isn’t it great how many people do it? But if you still haven’t enrolled, you might have to pay a penalty called the individual shared responsibility payment, which is 1% of your salary. Then Americans said, ‘Man, good thing I don’t have a job.’”

However, not everyone believes the numbers are true. Some claim that of those 7 million people only 858,000 or so were uninsured, and have actually paid their premiums. Many others lost their insurance because of Obamacare and were forced to enroll, often with lesser coverage.
