(Washington, D.C) President Obama says 8 million people have signed up for the Affordable Care Act.

The number of people who have actually enrolled and paid still has not been released.

Mr. Obama said 35% of those who have signed up are under 35 years of age.

That number is one being closely watched because there needs to be more healthy than sick to make the system work.
