White House press secretary Jay Carney grew impatient with reporters who pestered him for the number of people enrolled for Obamacare since the website launched on Oct. 1.

"Here is another fact that I understand is not often reported — people are enrolling every day and they've been enrolling every day since Oct. 1," Carney said.

Carney insisted that it was a fact that people were getting enrolled in the health insurance exchanges, in spite of the technical difficulties with the website.

"But you won't tell us how many," ABC's Jonathan Karl responded. "It would be great to know."

"Well you know, good reporters ... across the country have been reporting on individuals who are getting and enrolling in health insurance," Carney shot back. "It's a fact."
