Highlighting American news
Documents released by the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee revealed only six people successfully enrolled in an insurance plan during the launch of HealthCare.gov Oct. 1. The notes were taken from an Obama administration “war-room” meeting and were released by committee Chairman Rep. Darrell Issa.
Let me stress this revelation again…
Six people successfully enrolled the first day according to these documents.
While these are unofficial numbers, it’s definitely an eye-opening statistic to Americans who don’t understand why a website that costs hundreds of millions of dollars isn’t working.
Marilyn Tavenner, director of the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, told USA Today that approximately 2.8 million people accessed the healthcare website its first day. Let’s put that in perspective.
2,799,994 people were unable to enroll in a plan the first day by using the website.
99.99978571428572 percent of people attempting to enroll in insurance the first day were unsuccessful.
The situation is grim for President Barack Obama and his new website. A recent NBC poll stated the president’s approval rating has dropped to a record low. The HealthCare.gov issues are likely to blame.
