Sen. Mark Udall told President Obama at the White House today that Americans may need more time to shop for health plans on glitchy websites tied to Obamacare, another sign that Democratic lawmakers are feeling the heat after the disastrous rollout of the law’s main provision.
Mr. Udall, Colorado Democrat, said he wants assurances that the federal HealthCare.gov website is secure.

He also said the federal site could learn a thing from the more successful rollout of Colorado’s state-run exchange.
“The rollout of HealthCare.gov has not been smooth — to say the least — and I shared the concerns of Coloradans directly with the president,” he said. “Consumers should have the time they need to shop for a plan and enroll after the widespread problems with the website are fixed. I urged the president again to extend the enrollment period to give consumers enough time to make an informed decision about their family’s health insurance options,” Mr. Udall said
