The RNC reported:
Yesterday, Vice President Joe Biden Acknowledged That The Administration Was Unlikely To Hit Its 7 Million ObamaCare Enrollment Target. “Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged on Wednesday that it will be hard to reach the target on the number of people signing up for health insurance by a looming March 31 deadline for ObamaCare enrollment.” (“Biden: ‘We May Not Get To 7 Million,’ By ObamaCare Deadline,” Reuters, 2/19/14)

  • Vice President Joe Biden: “We May Not Get To Seven Million, We May Get To Five Or Six, But That’s A Hell Of A Start.” “‘We may not get to seven million, we may get to five or six, but that’s a hell of a start,’ Biden said, according to a pool report of his meeting.” (“Biden: ‘We May Not Get To 7 Million,’ By ObamaCare Deadline,” Reuters, 2/19/14)

After Defining A Successful ObamaCare Enrollment Season As 7 Million Enrollees, The Obama Administration Distanced Itself From Their Own Goal

In June 2013, Health And Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius Said The 7 Million Goal Would Be What “Success Looks Like.” “In June, Sebelius described 7 million consumers in the first year as a ‘realistic target.’ One day before HealthCare.gov launched Oct. 1, NBC News asked Sebelius: ‘What does success look like?’ ‘Well, I think success looks like at least 7 million people having signed up by the end of March 2014’ she responded.” (Carrie Budoff Brown and Jason Millman, “7 Million ObamaCare Customers,” Politico, 12/11/13)

  • In September, HHS Drafted A Memo Listing The Administration’s Enrollment Goals From The Beginning To The End Of The ObamaCare Enrollment Period. “The Sept. 5 memo, for Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, lists monthly enrollment targets for each state and Washington, D.C., through March 31, the last day of the initial open enrollment period under President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.” (Ricardo Alonso-Zaldivar, “Obama Health Target: 500,000 Signups By Oct. 31,” The Associated Press, 10/16/13)

After The Rollout Debacle, The Obama Administration Called The Goal To Enroll 7 Million People Before The March 31 Deadline “Meaningless.” “Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius once described 7 million new ObamaCare customers in the first year as what ‘success looks like.’ The White House is now trying to affix another label to the estimate: meaningless.” (Carrie Budoff Brown and Jason Millman, “7 Million ObamaCare Customers,” Politico, 12/11/13)

  • “For Months, The Obama Administration Embraced The Projection  …  And Its’s A Steep Climb To Register 7 Million People By The March Deadline.”  “It might be too late. For months, the Obama administration embraced the projection by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office as a way to explain enrollment goals, boosting their political significance. But the broken HealthCare.gov website caused the program to lag far behind on signing up customers, and it’s a steep climb to register 7 million people by the March deadline.” (Carrie Budoff Brown and Jason Millman, “7 Million ObamaCare Customers,” Politico, 12/11/13)
