NBC News, November 4, 2013

Only six people were able to enroll for health insurance through the Obamacare website on the first day, according to documents released Thursday by Republicans on the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. The documents also show that by the end of the day Oct. 2, only 248 enrollments had been completed through healthcare.gov. According to notes from a meeting on the morning of Oct. 2, there was a laundry list of "ongoing issues" with healthcare.gov, including "high capacity on the website, direct enrollment not working, VA system not connecting, Experian creating confusion with credit check information."
