Seven Senate Democrats now want Obamacare’s individual mandate delayed. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin is introducing legislation to delay the mandate — which Democrats just shut the government to keep on schedule — and is now joined by six other senators who want it delayed. ABC identifies them as Sens. Jeanne Shaheen (NH), Mark Udall (CO), Tom Udall (NM), Mark Pryor (AR), Mark Begich (AK), and Kay Hagan (NC).
During the government shutdown, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) described Republicans seeking delays or to defund Obamacare as “legislative arsonists.”
