      would be how many are in the medicaid gap.

      I see from following your link that 1 million Texans fell in the medicaid gap.

      Isn't the goal to get 7 million covered by March 2014? Or is it by end 2014?

      Does that goal include medicaid? If so, total Obamacare signups will be crippled by the GOP medicaid gap: they will be able to say it failed if we don't hit 7 million, and we can't hit 7 million if there's gaps in all the red states, if they add up to certain numbers.

      The number of people in the national medicaid gap would be interesting to know.

      •  I see there another million in Florida (1+ / 0-)

        near enough: 763,000.

        Did the administration say they need 7 million total including the medicaid expansion?

        That's almost 2 million guaranteed non signups right there between TX and FL.
