U.S. Department of Health released the statistics Wednesday regarding the first month of accessibility to national insurance under the Affordable Care Act. Nationwide 106,185 Americans were able to join the program. In South Dakota the number of folks registered tallied 58. The number reflects citizens who obtained actual health insurance policies from Oct. 1 to Nov. 2.

After examining the figures, Republican South Dakota Senator John Thune released a statement in response to the rollout of Obamacare:

 

“As millions of Americans continue to lose the health care they have and like, today we learned that an embarrassingly small number of Americans have signed up for ObamaCare. In South Dakota, only 58 were able to successfully sign up—a miniscule number compared to the thousands who are losing their current care. The president and Senate Democrats need to uphold their promise that Americans can keep the care they have and like.”
