Rep. James Lankford said Tuesday he is not excited by the news that more people enrolled in the Obamacare health exchanges because so many more have been kicked off their current insurance plans.

Mr. Lankford, Oklahoma Republican, said that the good news — that 100,000 people entered the exchanges last month — is overshadowed by the fact that five million people have been kicked off their insurance.


“So, 100,000 people signing up, when five million people lost [their insurance] is a tough figure to say that is a positive thing,” he said on “Jansing & Co” on MSNBC.
