Democrats will be able to run on ObamaCare and win in 2014, the party chairwoman's insisted Friday.
Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Fla.) said the troubled rollout of ObamaCare's enrollment website, which has frustrated thousands trying to enter the site and bruised the administration, won't hurt Democrats in next year's midterm elections.
"Democrats will run on the Affordable Care Act and win," Wasserman Schultz said.
Speaking to reporters after an address to the DNC's Women Leadership Forum on Friday, Wasserman Schultz said the law will help the party with female voters because of the benefits women will receive under the healthcare law.
"No, on the contrary, we know that women are already benefiting significantly from the part of ObamaCare that's already been implemented," she said.
Wasserman Schultz cited the ability of women to receive free birth control and preventative care under the law as examples.
