• House Oversight Committee: Only 6 people signed up for Affordable Care Act on first day


    WASHINGTON, D.C. - The House Oversight Committee says only six people have signed up for Affordable Care Act on the first day.

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

    According to ABC News, 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 Oct. 1-2, reflecting all the technical glitches that site experienced.

    The memos were turned over as part of a document request to the House Oversight Committee, which is investigating the rollout of the insurance portal.

    The direct enrollment was not working due to a high capacity on the website, according to the memos.

    Obama administration officials have refused to publicly provide any estimate of successful enrollments, though they have said the site received 4.7 million unique visitors on its first day and has now generated more than 700,000 applications.

    ABC News also said the administration projected half a million successful signups by Oct. 31.

    On Thursday, Reuters reported that government officials are looking to Google and Oracle experts to help with the website glitches.
