Affordable Care Act Numbers

More Americans have signed up for insurance on Healthcare.gov, but the total is still well below the Obama administration's original expectations.

Today, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius is testifying before Congress.

Her department says about 260,000 Americans signed up for insurance last month.

That's more than double the amount in October.

It brings the 2-month total to nearly 365,000.

The original goal was 1.2 million.

Although more people are signing up on healthcare.gov, a new CBS News New York Times poll shows the law is still unpopular.
"Millions of Americans are being harmed by this law. My constituents do not trust the administration when it comes to the affordable healthcare act," said Rep. Joe Pitts.

Sebelius says the website is also functioning better than when it launched.

She's also calling for an investigation into what went wrong.
