Jack Lew dodges a simple question--as usual

Obama's treasury secretary Jack Lew is a lying, dissembling, disingenuous rat bastard.  (More on that here.  And here.)  He's good at dodging questions and flatly lying with a big smile.  In other words he's a perfect fit for this administration.

Appearing on one of the Sunday news shows, Lew was asked "How many people have signed up for Obamacare?"  He refused to give a straight answer.  The host, to his credit, recognized he was being given a bullshit response and tried again:
Chris Wallace: "Forgive me sir, you haven’t answered it.  Do you not know how many people signeod up, which would seem to indicate another major software glitch, or is it that the numbers are embarrassingly small?” 
Obama's treasury secretary: “Chris, our metric for this week was, could people get online, get the information they need to make an informed decision.  They have been getting that information. We are confident that they are going to make the decision — they have 6 months to make the decision.”
Wallace tried again: “So do you not know, or is it that the number is –”
“Well, it’s obviously not my primary area of responsibility,” said the treasury secretary.
But at this point, what difference does it make?  No one has *ever* been able to get a straight answer from any member of the Obama administration.
