About 11.4 million expected to sign up. States that run their own exchanges are doing better at keeping their numbers up than states that are at the mercy of healthcare.gov. It looks to me like even without a functioning mandate, there's still an ability to keep the exchanges going and for companies to make money. I think we need a real mandate at some point. But glad the Trump sabotage isn't working so far.

This has an interesting graph. States that run their own exchange in most cases are outpacing last year. This is in the face of the Trumpist attacks.
