In other words, if you put the original “Mercury Seven” astronauts together with all those who supposedly were able to successfully enroll in Obamacare on the first day, there would be about 15 percent more astronauts in the room.

The website launched on a Tuesday. Publicly, the government said there were 4.7 million unique visits in the first 24 hours. But at a meeting Wednesday morning, the war room notes say “six enrollments have occurred so far.”

They were with BlueCross BlueShield North Carolina and Kansas City, CareSource and Healthcare Service Corporation.

By Wednesday afternoon, enrollments were up to “approximately 100.” By the end of Wednesday, the notes reflect “248 enrollments” nationwide.

So, 248 enrollments nationwide after the first two days.

Here’s Jay Carney on 10/3/13:

MR. CARNEY: Here is what we know. First, in the two days since the marketplaces opened, 7 million people have visited healthcare.gov, and that’s unique visitors. That is more than the number of people who visit SouthwestAirlines.com in a month — in a month. That’s a pretty popular site. So as a measure of interest, it is substantial.

Meaning that after two days there was a 0.000035 percent enrollment rate vs. Carney’s claimed number of “unique visitors”? Heads would have rolled in the private sector, but they’re more lenient and patient when somebody else’s money has been wasted.
