During the initial open enrollment period, the Obama administration released monthly enrollment reports that even if they were exasperatingly incomplete and/or doctored in what data they chose to reveal gave us at least some sort of idea of what was going on with the presidents crowning legislative achievement.
Now that the Obama administration has that alleged 8 million sing-ups number to tout, however, they evidently no longer feel the need to even keep up the pretense of releasing regular reports on the laws progress.
As Politico reports (paywall):
The Obama administration has quietly decided to halt its monthly updates on Obamacare enrollment, which were a major pipeline of information about the impact of the health law heading into the 2014 campaign season. HHS issued monthly enrollment reports during the first marketplace open enrollment period in order to provide the best understanding of enrollment activities as it was taking place, an HHS spokeswoman emailed. Now that this time period has ended, we will look at future opportunities to share information about the marketplace that is reliable and accurate over time as further analysis can be done but we do not anticipate monthly reports. The agency offered no information about the timing or level of detail in any future updates.

....because the number is so big it would take too long to say?
Naw. Largely because this half-baked 1972 “socialized medicine” idea doesn’t work in 2014.
Shouldn’t the word “unexpectedly” be in that title somewhere? /sarc

Just like they quit releasing the number of soldiers that die in the middle east hell holes..
I would think by now, the media should've been able to come up with all sorts of real-life Obamacare "success" stories, with real individuals or families. Seems the bad stories still far outweigh the good.

If they aren;t releasing “good” stories, it is because there are none. Anyone who has seen their healthcare improve under ObamaCare is getting it for free, and that is a message that is a real double-edged sword for Democrats - they want to trumpet the individual success, but hide the fact that a lot of voters are paying for that “success story” (while their personal finances are in the crapper).
Only one thing left that needs to be done now.....halt Obamacare & everything that goes with it,and,as much as possible,make the people who foisted this fiasco upon us pay for the damages done .....out of their money,not ours.
Or they are just finding it more difficult to lie about it. Either way, we know exactly why they stopped.

I think they know they have a credibility problem; liberals admitted over a year ago that regular people don’t listen to Obama anymore (I didn’t think most ever did).
