It’s Obamacare D-Day: The last day of open enrollment for health insurance without having to pay a penalty.
The White House came up one million short of their original goal of 7 million signups, but has still been touting the numbers as a success.
Many critics beg to differ that the numbers have much meaning, as the White House hasn’t given out many details as to exactly who these 6 million people are and how many have paid their premiums.
One Republican senator, John Barrasso of Wyoming, said that he doesn’t even believe the numbers and thinks the White House is “cooking the books.”
We want you to weigh in on today's Fireback question: Now that more than 6 million people have enrolled in Obamacare, do you consider it a success?

Those who voted "Yes"
@Crossfire @CNNPolitics To early to call, but getting one uninsured person to sign up is a success story for that person

@Crossfire No, the deadline to sign up might have ended, but COVERAGE hasn't even begun. I smell more road blocks & delays. #Crossfire
