The Health and Human Services Department said 106,185 people have successfully applied for and chosen private insurance through the health care law's new marketplaces. That total is only about 20 percent of the administration's initial enrollment target for October, the first month in which consumers were able to sign up for coverage.
Officials have long acknowledged they would fall short of that target because of the problems surrounding HealthCare.gov, the problem-plagued website that handles enrollment for 36 states.
HealthCare.gov has performed even worse than expected. Fewer than 27,000 people selected a plan through the website, compared with roughly 79,000 who picked a plan through the 15 state-based insurance exchanges. Unofficial estimates leaked earlier this week suggested the federal website had done slightly better.

27,000 people could use the federal website, vs twice that number who were able to use state websites...
Ahh, yes, federalism always saves time and trouble...
The Dems used to talk about the 40 million people without healthcare.
Now they can talk about the 200 million without healthcare..............
More people bought ammo in any single day!
How many of those have made the first payment, and how many chose Medicaid?
That’s a shame.
I hope there is a way that Issa can subpoena this information because they will never get it out of Sebellius.
These f'n RATs need to speak English. Did they pay for it? Is choosing private insurance the same as putting it into a shopping basket.
On the bright side:
Enrollment is up 4,500% over day one !!!
And the low information voters will believe them when they blame it on the Republicans.
Yep, just what I was saying all along. The communist propaganda machine posing as our fair and impartial media will start a blame the Republican campaign and all the ‘tards will believe them. Matter of fact I’ll bet in a few years as we get near the POTUS election it will be non-stop. “Vote for Hillary! Stop the Republicans from messing up your health insurance!”
Even Pravda couldn’t hide this crop failure. Poor little Marxists proving how incompetent they are...again.
Pray America is waking up
