Heinrich & Udall Want to Delay Obamacare Enrollment Deadline

U.S. Sens. Martin Heinrich and Tom Udall have signed on to a letter from several Democratic senators asking President Obama to extend open enrollment for individuals trying to sign on for health insurance as mandated by the Affordable Care Act.

This, of course, is due to the well-documented problems with the federal website

In a statement, Heinrich said he joined the effort led by New Hampshire Sen. Jeanne Shaheen:

"These technical glitches delay thousands of New Mexicans from enrolling in affordable health care coverage, which is unacceptable. An extension would give families time to properly evaluate plans and select a choice that is right for them. The Affordable Care Act has already yielded numerous benefits, and I'll continue working with my colleagues to ensure every family in New Mexico has access to quality and affordable health care."
