Washington, D.C. – Congressman Donald M. Payne, Jr. (NJ-10) today released the following statement on the Affordable Care Act’s 2015 open enrollment numbers:

“About 11.4 million Americans, including 252,792 New Jerseyans, signed up for health coverage through the Affordable Care Act.

“These statistics send a clear message: New Jersey families are finding affordable, high-quality health care options under the Affordable Care Act, improving their financial security and well-being.

“The Affordable Care Act is working, plain and simple. I challenge my Republican colleagues to protect the law, not undermine it, and defend the many benefits the law provides to millions of children, seniors, and families.”
