Enrollment in Obamacare's insurance exchanges grew by 1.1 million people in January, according to the Department of Health and Human Services.

That means 3.3 million had signed up for health insurance through HealthCare.gov, the federal exchange, or state exchanges during their first four months of operation.

"We're seeing a healthy growth in enrollment," said HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius in a conference call with reporters.

A closer look at a Facebook post on a man's struggle with the Obamacare marketplace

Shortly after the the Obamacare insurance marketplace launched on Oct. 1, users of social media experienced a burst of complaints on Twitter and Facebook, ranging from technical glitches to substantive concerns.
Greg Russak's insight:

"The Facebook post tells the story of a man who says he opted out of Obamacare soon after the marketplace was launched on Oct. 1, 2013, and was informed that he owed a fine of more than $4,000.

The post includes many elements that make no sense or are flat-out wrong -- and can be easily debunked by reading the law or reliable summaries of it. We rate it Pants on Fire."
