Treasury Secretary Stonewalls When Asked How Many Have Signed Up for Obamacare
11:22 AM, Oct 6, 2013 • By DANIEL HALPER


Treasury Secretary Jack Lew refused to answer Fox host Chris Wallace's simple question this morning: How many people have signed up for Obamacare?

"I'm going to ask you one last time," said Wallace, "because, forgive me sir, you haven't answered it: do you not know how many people signed up, which would seem to indicate another major software glitch, or is it that the numbers are embarrassingly small?"

"Chris, our metric for this week was, could people get online, get the information they need to make an informed," said Lew, sidestepping the straightforward question. "They have been getting that information. We are confident that they are going to make the decision -- they have 6 months to make the decision."

Wallace tried again: "So do you not know or is that the number is --"

"Well, it's obviously not my primary area of responsibility," said the treasury secretary.
