WH on Number of Enrollees in Obamacare: We 'Don't Have that Data'
2:10 PM, Oct 3, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER
White House spokesman Jay Carney, an "essential" federal employee, can tell you how many people have visited the Obamacare website ("7 million") but he can't tell you how many people have enrolled in Obamacare:
Carney says that 7 million "unique" visitors is more than the number of visitors Southwest Airlines gets in a month to their website.
"But we don't have -- 48 hours, no -- we don't have that data," he said. "And we're not -- we're focused on improving the consumer experience, making sure that the American people have the information they need through healthcare.gov and through the toll-free number to begin to make assessments about what kind of insurance they'd like."
