It has been reported that the first day the federal Obamacare exchange was open for business, six people managed to enroll.
The Obama administration, which still refuses to release actual enrollment numbers, is quiet.
Even @HealthCareTara, the White House’s senior Obamacare spinmeister, hasn’t yet been able to muster an excuse.
It is a matter of political debate whether or not six is a large number in a country of 310 million people.

Jay Carney will no doubt refer reporters to the HHS, which will then refer reporters to a non-answer.

The Obama administration claimed they had no idea how many people had managed to enroll in an Obamacare plan.

But they knew then and they know now.
The administration knows how many are enrolled right now. They're not telling us because it's an embarrassingly low number.

The White House claimed not to know, but somehow Saturday Night Live got it right.
