Earlier this year, Sen. Mark Begich (D-AK) promised “aggressive outreach” to help Alaskans enroll in ObamaCare’s health insurance exchanges.

It looks like all of Begich’s “aggressive outreach” has worked out really well, considering zero Alaskans have been able to sign up for Begich’s ObamaCare exchange.
No one from Alaska has enrolled in the new health care exchange, and a U.S. senator wants weekly updates on future enrollments. Glitches have been reported since the exchanges went live Oct. 1. Exchanges are online marketplaces where individuals can browse for insurance, to be in compliance with the federal health care law. Alaska let the federal government set up an exchange for the state. In a letter Monday to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius, U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, said no one in Alaska has been able to sign up.
Enroll Alaska chief operating officer Tyann Boling confirmed that no one has enrolled as of late last week. ‘Now things are looking a little bit better this week,’ she said. ‘It’s not for sure we’ve enrolled anybody yet, but things seems to be functioning a little bit better, but as of last week, we had not known of one person that had enrolled in the state of Alaska.’”
