Minnesota senator Al Franken, a Democrat, opens the door to a delay of the Obamacare individual mandate in an interview with Minnesota Public Radio.
The Washington Post reports:
Sen. Al Franken (D-Minn.) says he would be open to a brief delay in the individual mandate if the problems with HealthCare.gov aren’t fixed by the end of the month, according to Minnesota Public Radio. “I think then we have to consider extending the deadline for the mandate, but let’s hope that doesn’t happen,” Franken told MPR. Franken has so far been relatively quiet about potential changes to the health-care law, but he now joins a growing group of Senate Democrats in seats that could be targeted by the GOP in 2014 who are speaking up on the issue.
When producer Lorne Michaels at Saturday Night Live came to him in 2007, and said “Al, I have an idea. You should run for the senate in some place like Minnesota,” Al said, “That’s not funny, Lorne.” And Lorne said, “Your point is?”
But Lorne was wrong.
After 30 laughless years in comedy and another five stumblebumming around the senate, who knew Al could be this funny?
