No Republicans voted to pass Obamacare, and all Republicans in the House and Senate favor delaying (or defunding) Obamacare. Now 10 Democrats have joined the Republicans on the question of delaying Obamacare, according to lefty blog TPM.
Ten Senate Democrats have signed a letter urging the Obama administration to extend Obamacare’s open enrollment period beyond March 31.
The letter, which follows a similar letter that Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-NH) sent Tuesday to President Obama, doesn’t say how long the extension should be. It is addressed to Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius.
The signatories are: Shaheen, Mark Begich (D-AK), Mark Pryor (D-AR), Mary Landrieu (D-LA), Kay Hagan (D-NC), Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), Mark Udall (D-CO), Tom Udall (D-NM), Michael Bennet (D-CO), and Martin Heinrich (D-NM).
Feinstein? Her seat is as safe as any Senate seat can possibly be. Her signature indicates that many more Democrats may break ranks but haven’t officially decided to yet.
