Report: Obamacare got six enrollees on Day 1

By Jay Hart 22 minutes ago

Six.

That's how many people signed up for Obamacare on Day 1, according to CBS News, and no that's not a misprint.

The Obama administration has kept the number of enrollments close to the vest. Its touted the number of visitors to the troubled HealthCare.gov website – 4.7 million – but hasn't released the actual number of enrollments.

But according to CBS News, notes from a "war room" meeting the day after the Affordable Care Act launched on Oct. 1 say "six enrollments have occurred so far." By the end of Day 2, enrollments totaled 248 nationwide.

The White House predicted 500,000 would sign up by the end of the month, according to a memo obtained by the Associated Press, and that was considered a "modest start" for the market.

CBS notes that in order to meet the goal of seven million enrollments by March 1, the exchanges need to enroll an average of 39,000 a day.

During Wednesday's Congressional hearing, Health and Human Services head Kathleen Sebelius was asked several times for the number of enrollments. She explained that the data was unreliable and would not be available until mid-November.

"We do not have any reliable data around enrollment, which is why we haven’t given it to date," she said.

I can’t imagine that once obamacare is in full force (and I pray not), what will happen if someone has to reenroll, or change plans or whatever.
first, there’s the problem of it even working that well.
second, if you have any experience with the people who have lived off welfare for three generations, they do nothing. there’s no way they’ll make the proper changes for themselves.

Wow is all I can say. Six insane, but determined people that somehow have managed not to walk into the middle of the highway.

CBS News has documents on their website that show there was highly reliable data on a daily basis. Kathleen lied to congress. I wonder if she was under oath?

On the positive side, they can say that enrollment from day 1 to day 2 was up over 4000%

What website store does not gather reliable data about sales and the buying customer? This reliable data mime is a lie, as we all know. The numbers must be very, very bad for Zerocare! Couldn’t happen to a more deserved socialist program. GREAT ROLL OUT ZERO! FAIL!

Woo! Hoo! Six people who are now free to go “enjoy” an “MVD experience” at the local MVD office. “Shopping” for a driver’s license and another voter registration form.

The proper way to spin it is that day 2 enrollments were up over 4000% over day 1, and at that present trajectory, the entire world should be enrolled by the end of the 8th business day.

That’s $100,000,000.00 per enrollee.

Well done! You can get a job with obama if you become truly desperate. :-)

This proves one thing, we are turning this country inside out to provide healthcare to deadbeats who could care less about having health insurance. Do they want us to believe the wino and hooker on the corner are going to go to the ACA website? How about the gangs in Chicago, I’m sure they signed up the first day. Average Americans are giving up their HC security for trash. The POS did this to get reelected and get women and minorities all fired up.

Not a dang bit, as proved every dang hearing held on anything.

Of those enrollments, how many of them are poor or non-paying participants?

I've had more than six trickertreators per hour to my humble abode tonight!

And they scored copious sweets not lumps of coal like the those poor Obamascare sots.

I’m glad that my training in economics was useful—the art of using numbers to produce whatever outcome the people paying the bills want. Fortunately, I write from Canada so I can watch the train wreck with a certain amount of detachment—indeed, I expect that Obamacare may help to solve Canada’s doctor shortage.

The amount of hubris involved in the whole project is truly astounding. Because the healthcare in Canada is provincially based, the largest system (Ontario’s) serves only 13.5 million and has grown organically over the last 40 years, beginning at a population half that size—admittedly a single-payer system is easier to administer, so if Obama received the green light for what he wanted, it wouldn’t be quite as challenging, but there is no evidence that the bureaucracy is up for that challenge, which, given the sheer scale of things, would be immense.

When I first clicked on Yahoo to check my mail I saw this story listed. I was surprised. By the time I got done checking my email it was gone off the main web page.

I’m completely against the oh so compassionate government (the British with their Liverpool path and Sebelius with her “some will live and some will die” denial of a lung transplant for the little girl)getting between me and my doctor regarding my health care. What gives them the right??? I was doing fine on my own without their damn interference.

My sister is married to a Dutchman - they are quite liberal. Well guess what? She got brain cancer and her private insurance pays for Avastan - something her husband admitted Holland won’t pay for. She beat the odds of 5% survival in 16 months and now her official odds are 50% for 5 years. I haven’t brought the subject up but my guess is they haven’t admitted their liberalism is bad for your health.
