Obama predicts enrollment 'close' to 7 million
President Obama predicted the administration would end up "reasonably close" to the 7 million people that the Congressional Budget Office originally projected would enroll in private insurance plans through ObamaCare during the program's first year. "We admittedly had just a terrible start because the website wasn't working, and despite losing effectively two months, we are going to be reasonably close to that original projection," the president said in an interview with CBS News taped during his visit to Rome last week. On Monday, White House press secretary Jay Carney predicted that final enrollment numbers would be "substantially larger" than the 6 million announced by the president last week.
