US healthcare reforms have reached a milestone as millions of people are now enrolled.

US President Barack Obama says 7.1 million Americans have signed up by Monday's midnight deadline for insurance plans sold on government-run exchanges.

"And despite several lost weeks because of problems with the website, 7.1 million Americans have now signed up for insurance plans through these marketplaces. 7.1 million!"

President Obama also says, in addition to the more than 7 million people on the exchanges, some 3 million young adults under the age of 26 were added to their parents' plans under the Affordable Care Act which took effect on Tuesday.

And millions more low-income people have been newly covered under the expanded Medicaid.
He denounced Republican attacks on the new system.

"The debate over repealing this law is over. The Affordable Care Act is here to stay."
