Don't look now, Republicans, but...

...the Affordable Care Act is working just fine in California:

Nearly 80,000 people have enrolled in health plans through California’s online marketplace, at a rate of several thousand a day in November — a sizable increase over a month ago, state officials said on Thursday.  

Especially encouraging, officials said, was the enrollment of young people, who are considered essential to the success of the Obama administration’s health care law. 

So, in other words, in the states that have working websites, like Connecticut and Kentucky, as well as California, the law is proceeding more or less according to plan. And, eventually, the ACA will work for the entire country, just as it has in Massachusetts for years and the rest of the developed world for decades. There's no turning back.

And Republicans will have to answer for their opposition.
