People enrolled in coverage.

How do some of these stats work?

Problem's left more than 40,000 applicants just idling in a virtual waiting room.

Only 248 individuals enrolled in the first few days.

These documents were notes from a war room meeting by administration agencies.

These were from the mornings after the exchanges officially opened on october 1. the first day, only six applicants completed the process.

The number was to about 100 applicants by october 2. these documents will not be the end of rough disclosures about the process.

Darrell issa, a from california, has subpoenaed kathleen sibelius for even more documents related specifically to the technical problems with the website.

We are seeing the possibility of more damaging information in the weeks ahead.

Obviously, for the obama administration, not a ton of good news today, but at least one tidbit.

A kaiser health tracking poll shows support for the law study through october.

Something else to keep in mind.

The president can take some solace in the fact that it was a busy news month.

Only 22% of those polled said they had paid close attention to the issue.

That was behind the debt ceiling debate.

General news about the state of the economy and syria's chemical weapons.

At least something there they can try to hang their hats on.
