WASHINGTON: President Barack Obama is planning a Rose Garden appearance Tuesday as sign-ups under his health care law surpassed 7 million.

A government official told The Associated Press that the 7 million mark had been crossed. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to discuss developments by name before Obama’s announcement.

The 7 million target was thought to be out of reach by most experts after computer glitches slowed sign-ups on deadline day Monday. A surge of consumer interest propelled sign-ups.

Obama plans to speak at 4:15 p.m.

The administration has not said how many of those who signed up closed the deal by paying their first month’s premiums.

People who started applying but were unable to finish before the deadline can have extra time.
