Only 6 people signed up for Obamacare on the first day


ABC News

Just six people successfully enrolled in health insurance plans through the new federal marketplace,, on the first day it went live, according to internal Obama administration “notes” released tonight by the House Oversight Committee.

By the end of the second day, 248 people had enrolled, the documents show.

The “war room notes,” prepared by the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight, offer the first rough snapshot of how many Americans were able to enroll on Oct. 1 and 2, reflecting all the technical snafus that plagued the site.

You read that correctly. The national site only had 6 enrollments the first day.
