At a Capitol Hill hearing, Kathleen Sebelius admitted today that the Obama administration is 3 million short of its Obamacare goal:

Said Congressman Joe Pitts: "The AP reported that a September 5 memo sent to you listed monthly enrollment targets for the exchanges, and this memo indicated 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?"

"Through the end of November, that is correct, sir," said Sebelius.
