The state of Delaware spent $4 million in federal grant money on Obamacare enrollment and has only signed up four people in the last month– effectively costing taxpayers $1 million per enrollee.

Alyssa Canobbio at Americans for Tax Reform writes:

Delaware has finally released its Obamacare enrollment number: Four.


Yes, a grand total of four state residents have fully enrolled in Obamacare. The cost to American taxpayers: $1 million per enrollee.


The state spent $4 million in federal grant money on four community organizations. Two of the community organizations have yet to have a single successful enrollment. The state blames the glitchy website and delays in background checks for the marketplace guides.

The Washington Post adds that as of Tuesday, Delaware had 31 enrollment applications and 218 accounts created for “possible enrollment.”
