In this day and age when “trusted” advisers can no longer be fully trusted, Obama should have just come clean on the first day stats instead of stonewalling when pressed for the numbers.

 

Just six people successfully enrolled in health insurance plans through the new federal marketplace, HealthCare.gov, on the first day it went live, according to internal Obama administration “notes” released tonight by the House Oversight Committee.

By the end of the second day, 248 people had enrolled, the documents show.

The “war room notes,” prepared by the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, offer the first rough snapshot of how many Americans were able to enroll on Oct. 1 and 2, reflecting all the technical snafus that plagued the site.

The informal memos were turned over this week as part of a document request to the Republican-chaired House Oversight Committee, which is investigating the rocky rollout of the insurance portal. They clearly indicate recognition that “direct enrollment [was] not working” because of “high capacity” on the site, though the documents note that dozens of applications were getting created.

To date, Obama administration officials have refused to publicly provide any estimate of successful enrollments, though they have said the site received 4.7 million unique visitors on its first day and has now generated more than 700,000 applications.

Note: It seems highly unlikely that 4.7 million visitors and 700,000 applications would lead to only 6 people signing up. 700,000 apps should have led to at least roughly 7,000 apps completed. The White House should revisit the stats and downscale the numbers as a 700k – to – 6 ratio would be a colossal failure.
