Big Layoffs at Obamacare Group, Half of Staff Let Go

(Paige Winfield)  The group founded to promote Obamacare has let about half its staff go.


Over the last few years, Enroll America conducted an organized campaign to spread the word about new health coverage provided under President Obama’s healthcare law. But with year two of enrollment coming to an end, the group is shuttering 100 jobs, the group confirmed to the Washington Examiner.

Founded by Affordable Care Act advocates with close ties to the White House, Enroll America has held events around the country aimed at persuading Americans to sign up. The group wasn’t intended to operate forever, but it is scaling back sooner than some advocates had expected.
