WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Some 11.4 million Americans enrolled in private health insurance through Obamacare during the open enrolment period, the White House said in a tweet on Tuesday.

"The Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, is working. It's working better than we anticipated, certainly working a lot better than many of the critics talked about early on," President Barack Obama said in a video linked to the White House tweet.

Obamacare's open enrollment period began on Nov. 15 and closed on Sunday.
