It came immediately after President Barack Obama announced that 8 million Americans had signed up for private insurance on Obamacare's exchanges, and called on Republicans to give up their quest to repeal the law.

Nope! Republicans have absolutely no intention of letting go of Obamacare, their No. 1 campaign issue in 2014. The positive new sign-up figures unveiled by the White House -- including 5 million on non-exchange private plans, 3 million on Medicaid, 3 million young adults on a parent's policy -- won't change that because the issue animates the conservative base like none other.
