The use of the word “demand” in this context wouldn’t pass muster in any economics class not taught by a professor with a poster of Paul Krugman in his office:

The only “unprecedented demand” there is comes from the government’s side of the equation.

You have to go to the end of The Hill’s story for a detail about the “unprecedented demand”:

A higher penalty next year for lacking insurance could be playing a role in driving signups. It is increasing to $695 or 2.5 percent of income, whichever is greater.

Could be?
