Two weeks after hitting its goal of more than 7 million health care sign-ups, the Obama administration trumpeted a new Congressional Budget Office report Monday showing lower costs.

"This report demonstrates the Affordable Care Act is working," said White House spokesman Jay Carney. "It shows that marketplace health care costs have gone down because premium estimates have gone down. Additionally, the effort to constrain health care costs more broadly is showing continued momentum, as evidenced by the further deduction in projected Medicare spending."

Carney also noted that the CBO estimated that "about 5 million people will enroll in plans that meet the (health care law) standards outside the marketplace."
