Obama tells supporters they are doing 'God's work' -- By Meghashyam Mali, The Washington Examiner

“The work you are doing is God's work,” Obama said at the National Organizing Summit, hosted by Organizing for Action, the nonprofit group formed from the remnants of Obama's 2012 re-election campaign that has helped promote his policies and played a key role in signing up consumers for Obamacare.

The president said that young volunteers who've worked to enroll consumers in the law's new insurance exchanges have helped the administration handle the rough launch of the healthcare.gov website, and touted Obamacare's 4 million sign-ups.

“Because of you we now have 4 million Americans who have signed up for insurance through the marketplace exchanges,” he continued. “That’s on top of the 3 million young people who have been able to get coverage staying on their parents plan and the millions of Americans who are signing up to get Medicaid.”
