OMG, No Wonder the WH and Sebelius Do Not Want to Release the Numbers … Only 6 Individuals Signed Up for Obamacare on Its First Day
Words cannot even describe the disaster that this truly is … Talk about a failure to launch.
CMS Marilyn Tavenner would not disclose any figures when Rep. Dave Camp. HHS Sec. Kathleen Sebelius also would not provide a number to the committee stating that she did not have verifiable numbers. So much for transparency. Now we know why. The House Oversight Committee release documents that showed 6, yes let me repeat that, 6 individuals signed up for Obamacare on its first day. And by the days end of Wednesday, the notes showed that there were only “248 enrollments” nationwide.
It is almost impossible to conceive that only 6 individuals enrolled. However, the White House is providing no data. They claim they do not have the numbers and are unable to track them. Please, spare me the BS. How difficult could it possibly be to get such data. Sorry, I am a healthcare data analyst consultant, it isn’t that hard. As a matter of fact I have in the past been specifically asked to provide such data as well as things that are quite more difficult to track than a simple enrollment number. One would think that they had reporting functionality within the website that cost between $400 and $600 million. Doug Ross is probably closer to the truth in saying, ” They lied to Congress to hide their catastrophic failures.” The comical part of this is that have to sign up about 7 million individuals to make this work. But it can’t be Medicaid heavy which much of the early data appears to be.
For 31 days now, the Obama administration has been telling us that Americans by the millions are visiting the new health insurance website, despite all its problems.
But no one in the administration has been willing to tell us how many policies have been purchased, and this may be the reason: CBS News has learned enrollments got off to an incredibly slow start.
Early enrollment figures are contained in notes from twice-a-day “war room” meetings convened within the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services after the website failed on Oct. 1. They were turned over in response to a document request from the House Oversight Committee.
The website launched on a Tuesday. Publicly, the government said there were 4.7 million unique visits in the first 24 hours. But at a meeting Wednesday morning, the war room notes say “six enrollments have occurred so far.”
They were with BlueCross BlueShield North Carolina and Kansas City, CareSource and Healthcare Service Corporation.
By Wednesday afternoon, enrollments were up to “approximately 100.” By the end of Wednesday, the notes reflect “248 enrollments” nationwide.

UPDATE I: In a remarkable turn of events, SNL nailed it in predicting the exact number of people who successfully enrolled in Obamacare on the first day of it’s disastrous rollout. … “Millions of Americans of Americans are visiting Healthcare.gov … Unfortunately the site was only designed to handle six users at a time”
