O-care exchange chief: Number of uninsured enrolling ‘not a data point we’re collecting’; Heads explode

Gary Cohen, the top U.S. health insurance regulator with the Center for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS), has been the man in charge of the implementation of Obamacare exchanges.

Asked about how many previously uninsured Americans have enrolled in an Obamacare plan, Cohen is quoted as responding this way:

Not collecting data on how many uninsured have signed up? Seriously?

Cue exploding heads:

President Obama has said the ACA is “working the way it should,” but how could he know that?

A new OFA graphic on Obamacare enrollment has been suggested:

Most likely the Obama administration knows the number, but it’s far too embarrassingly low to share with the people who are paying for this train wreck:

Cohen will step down at the end of the month, so perhaps the only “data points” he’s concerned about exist at a different job.
