Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D- Calif.) tweeted out a claim that one million people have applied and are eligible to get insurance through the Obamacare marketplace and 500,000 have already secured coverage.

However, the numbers released are not even close to her figures.

Health and Human Services (HHS) announced this afternoon that 106,185 people have picked a plan as of November 2. Of those, 27,000 did so through federal exchanges.
