Wasserman Schultz: Obama Should Absolutely Be Open To Extending Enrollment Period

CHUCK TODD, MSNBC: I want to go back to the first question I asked, you didn't answer specifically on what Jeanne Shaheen is calling for. That if these glitches aren't fixed in a timely manner, and everybody I've talked to in the administration says a 'timely manner' is getting this website up -- truly up and running by Dec. 1. Should there be an openness to extending the open enrollment? Should there be an openness to delaying the penalty in some form?

REP. DEBBIE WASSERMAN-SCHULTZ, DNC CHAIR: There should absolutely be an openness to extending the open enrollment period, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.

TODD: But not the penalty?

DWS: Giving people as much opportunity to get coverage, and if we we can extend the open enrollment period, to make sure that we can continue to move forward with implementation, thats the goal. The goal is to give people the time they need to shop around, to make the comparisons, to get covered, and to make sure that when it comes to their health, they can focus on staying well.
