In its original projection, the administration said 7 million Americans would have to be signed up by the end of March for the insurance pool at the heart of the law to function properly. Biden acknowledged that “we may not get to 7 million, but if we get to 5 or 6 million that’s a hell of a start.”
“Uh-oh Joe,” tweeted Fox News anchor Martha MacCallum, who also asked an increasingly important Obamacare enrollment question.
Uh-oh Joe! Biden admits they may not make it to 7 million in ACA by 3/31,
and by the way – how many of them paid?

Just how inflated are those enrollment numbers (that still aren’t meeting projections)? The American people have had enough of this “selected a plan” balderdash and chicanery.
@marthamaccallum Excellent question… Maybe 2/3 have paid… Not enough, that's for sure….

@marthamaccallum And I think he said 5 – 6 M wouldn't be a "bad start". Previous "goalposts" set by Sebelius/Carney, etc. to the contrary.

@marthamaccallum And how many will pay for month number 2…3…

Remember the admin’s “jobs saved or created” measurement?
@marthamaccallum The big ? is how many were previously uninsured vs those had to buy bc they lost coverage.

Aweee! They will just change the name to "Bushcare" and claim that it was originally GW's idea.
