Only six people sign up for ObamaCare


JUST six people signed up for the much-maligned ObamaCare during its problem-plagued first day of operation.

A shock report from CBS News shows virtually no takers signed up on the federal health insurance website.

Although the Obama administration said there were 4.7 million unique visitors to the website on October 1 and October 2, Health and Human Services Department documents obtained by CBS said only “six enrollments have occurred so far” on the first day.

On the second day, Oct. 2, enrollments were up to “approximately 100” by the afternoon and a total of 248 by the end of the day, CBS reported Thursday.

The ObamaCare program needs to have tens of thousands of people to sign up each day to meet its goal.

The low-enrollment revelation came a day after after HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was grilled on Capitol Hill — where she claimed there was no “reliable data” on the number of signups.

The site has been plagued by outages since its launch, but a team of engineers have pledged to help repair the glitches that have prevented people from enrolling in the federal health-insurance exchange.

“I know it’s a very political topic,” Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said Thursday. “[But] as an information-technology company, we are doing everything we can to help.”
