Dems Breaking Rank On ObamaCare Delay: Update 1

A previous post noted that more than a few Democrats had expressed interest in delaying the individual mandate and/or extending the open enrollment period.  Here are some more Democrats who have expressed similar sentiments since then.  A full list follows.

According to Politico, Sen. Jeane Shaheen has offered a plan to extend the open enrollment period and “Kay Hagan (N.C.) and Mary Landrieu (La.) also support that plan.” 

Shaheen, Hagan and Landrieu have signed a letter with ten other Democratic Senators asking the White for an extension of the enrollment period.  The other seven signatories are: Mark Begich (D-Alaska), Mark Pryor (D-Ark.), Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), Mark Udall (D-Colo.), Tom Udall (D-N.M.), Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) and Martin Heinrich (D-N.M.).

Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is running as a Democrat for Senate in Kentucky, has “said it makes sense to extend the March 31 enrollment deadline and postpone the $95 penalty for people who fail to meet the deadline for acquiring coverage,” according to the Courier Journal.  Additionally USA Today says that a Democrat candidate for Senate in Georgia, Michelle Nunn, has “endorsed delaying the requirement for individuals to buy insurance.”
