Lawmakers on the Hill have scheduled an October 24 hearing in which Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius could be called upon to explain the rough rollout of Obamacare.
There appears to be a good reason why no one in the Obama administration will reveal the number of enrollees in ObamaCare during its first official week of operation – with two sources inside the Department of Health and Human Services saying it netted just 51,000 enrollees thus far.
