Obamacare sign ups fell only slightly this year, despite Trump, GOP efforts to undermine the health law




Sign ups for Obamacare health insurance plans through the Healthcare.gov marketplace fell 4% for 2019.




While this is the second straight year that enrollment declined, the final tally is much better than earlier numbers suggested.




The drop was due to a slew of reasons ranging from the repeal of the individual mandate in the GOP tax law to Virginia's expansion of Medicaid.



Obamacare enrollment declined for the second straight year, but the number of people enrolling in health insurance plans for 2019 remained relatively resilient following a year of uncertainty fueled by President Donald Trump and Republicans in Congress.
Enrollment in Affordable Care Act health plans through the federally-managed Healthcare.gov platform totaled about 8.5 million during this year's open enrollment period, down 4% from last year, according to preliminary data released Wednesday by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services.
The figures are from 39 states. Others, such as New York and California, run their own sign-up systems and have different deadlines.
