Re "Sebelius pressed on health care rollout" (Page A7, Nov. 7): To achieve their goal of 7 million registered by March 2014, Obamacare needs an average of 39,000 people to sign up per day. On Day One, they had a total of 6 for the entire nation. Presently, a total of 4 have been able to register in the state of Delaware and 0 in Oregon.

Sebelius is still calling them "glitches," although finally admitting she is frustrated. The folks who took millions and were tasked to get this site up and running are actually asking for additional funds to get it fixed -- even though it never worked in the first place. This is all taxpayer dollars.

In spite of all the incompetency that has taken place thus far, my biggest fear will actually be realized when the website is fixed and people can register. That's when the real problems with this law will begin.
