Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted Thursday that Obamacare has fallen three million short of its enrollment target through November.
The full exchange is below:
REP. PITTS: On October the 8th, you reported that a September 5th memo sent to you listed monthly enrollment targets for the exchanges, and this memo indicates that your target enrollment number for the end of December is 3.3 million. Based on HHS’s release this morning, your department is more than 3 million off their target number. Isn’t that correct?
SEC. SEBELIUS: Through the end of November, that is correct, sir.
Rep. Pitts asks Secretary Sebelius whether the government knows how many people will be successfully enrolled in plans at the beginning of next year.
