A growing number of Democrats are now asking the White House to extend the period to signup on Healthcare.gov
There is bipartisan agreement about one part of the spotty rollout of the government healthcare website, which Congressman Scott Rigell (R-Va.) sums up this way.
"That's been an embarrassment for the administration and really our country that we can't get this website right," Rigell says.
Ten Senate Democrats sent a letter to the president asking him to delay the signup period for the federal health exchange, but Democrats in the region say that is premature. Sen. Mark Warner (D-Va.) says the Affordable Care Act is like a house of cards, and getting people enrolled in health exchanges remains foundational.
"The structure of this has to hang together, so that if you start unraveling pieces of it you can pull on the string and it can lead to other problems," Warner says.
The White House is bracing skeptics and supporters alike for low enrollment numbers when they release data on how many people have signed up.
While Republicans are growing more skeptical of the law and the website, for now, Democrats in the region are sticking with the White House.
