A report in this afternoon’s Wall Street Journal claims that the federal HealthCare.gov website has resulted in only 40,000 to 50,000 successful enrollments nationwide as of last week — about 10 percent of projections. But White House spokesman Jay Carney told us early numbers “were always going to be low.”

Obama administration estimated that 500,000 people would enroll in Obamacare in October. Fewer than 50,000 have. http://t.co/ZvbNCrtWm0

If http://t.co/C1MXoZHkiY signed up only 50,000 people so far, that's fewer than the capacity of Yankee Stadium.

.@BarackObama spent ONE TRILLION DOLLARS so 50,000 people would sign up for his healthcare plan. And all America got was this lousy website.

50,000 enrolled ocare, that's only 90% off needed #. Talking subsidizing cancelled policies. Idiots! Only way to fix this is to repeal it.

How many millions of Americans are going to have their health insurance canceled so that 50,000 could benefit from ObamaCare?

The easy answer to that: way more than 50,000.
The Obama administration is expected to share official numbers sometime this week.
