Jimmy Fallon, host of NBC’s “Tonight Show”, on Tuesday mocked the Obama administration’s announcement that it exceeded its goal for Obamacare sign-ups.

“The White House says it has surpassed its goal for people enrolled in Obamacare. It’s amazing what you can achieve when you make something mandatory and fine people if they don’t do it and then keep extending the deadline for months,” Fallon said on his show, as recorded by the Daily Caller. “It’s like a Cinderella story. It’s just a beautiful thing. You make everyone do it.”

Fallon then dinged President Obama on the unemployment rate.

“If you still haven’t enrolled, you might have to pay a penalty called the ‘Individual Shared Responsibility Payment,’ which is 1 percent of your salary,” he said. “Then Americans said, ‘hey, good thing I don’t have a job.'”
