WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid admitted during a press conference Wednesday that he doesnt know how many Americans will sign up for Obamacare after the White House granted an open enrollment extension.
I dont know how many are going to sign up for Obamacare, but we think its going to be a high number, Reid said. I dont know how high it will be, but it will be high.
The Obama administration announced Tuesday that people will get extra time if they have applied for health insurance through exchanges but cant finish the process before the March 31 open enrollment deadline. Reid stated that Obamacare is not very popularamong Americans right now.
Obamacare, if you do a poll of anyone, thats dropped way down in significance, Reid said, adding that the health care exchange rollout was really bad.
The White House is scrambling to meet a goal of 6 million signed up through new online markets that offer subsidized private health insurance to people without access to coverage on the job. The HealthCare.gov website got more than 1 million visitors Monday, and the administration also wants to prevent a repeat of website problems that soured consumers last fall.
We are experiencing a surge in demand and are making sure that we will be ready to help consumers who may be in line by the deadline to complete enrollment, either online or over the phone, Health and Human Services spokesman Aaron Albright said.
Reid [aka Baghdad Bob] said the latest extension was not a hiccup or a delay.

A good day for me will be when Reid is called Minority Leader Reid.
Well Reid, I’m sure those that saw their premiums skyrocket think it is still pretty significant... If they weren’t dropped from the plans they liked all together, that is.
Reid should really not partake of his medical marijuana before answering questions.
Even better would be "Mr. Reid". Or just plain Harry.
Then repeal it, you hack.
A better day will be when Dingy Harry goes back to NV and stays there.
Or federal inmate #6886973.
or maybe inmate Reid.
They will count everyone that signed up for medicaid even though millions of them would have signed up naturally anyway. They will count those who lost their old insurance because of Obamacare, and were forced to purchase Obamacare insurance if they wanted to keep being insured. They will count everyone who signed up, even if they signed up multiple times, regardless of whether they paid their first payment or not.
In other words, nearly all the signups Obama will claim will be make believe, so they can shout success! from the rooftops.
I was gonna add “or that homeless guy” but you two have the best idea yet.
Should the Republicans organize the Senate after January 2015, I imagine the minority leader will be Chuck Schumer.
A better day would be "ex-Senator Reid"
A GOOD day would be "inmate #31705"

One of the questions that no one seems to answer is how many have paid and for what period of time.
My doctor clients have patients who paid the money to the exchange but they didn’t send it to the insurance company so they have no evidence of coverage, some who have paid but now want out and can’t get their money back and some who have ID cards but haven’t paid anything.
Just a disaster.
“The White House is scrambling to meet a goal of 6 million signed up through new online markets that offer subsidized private health insurance to people without access to coverage on the job”
7 million. The number was 7 million. Guess the goalposts moved........again.
