The Obama administration announced Thursday, that the enrollment for the president's health care law has grown to 7.5 million Americans, handing President Barack Obama and the Democrats bigger coverage numbers to tout in the face of election-year attacks. Sign-ups for the law stood at 7.1 million last week, but people who had started signing up when the enrollment period closed March 31, or who had trouble signing up, were given extra time to finalize their applications. Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said in testimony before the Senate Finance Committee, four hundred thousand more have now done so. Sebelius said she expects the figure to continue to grow.
