Sen. Murphy: ‘I Have Confidence that this Product Will Fly off the Shelves’

‘ I have confidence that this product will fly off the shelves once people can get into the website’

MURPHY: "I guess my confidence that in the end, while this is a disruption to a large section of the economy, my confidence that in the end, there are going to be far, far more winners than losers, is rooted in part in Connecticut's experience. We have an exchange that is up, and working, and in the first month of the exchange, we have hit 10 percent of our overall enrollment goal, even given the fact that the Massachusetts connector, which was actually run by the same guy who's running Connecticut's exchange, in the first month only saw 0.3 percent of their total enrollees sign-up. And so, I have confidence that this product will fly off the shelves once people can get into the website, because I've seen what is happening in Connecticut, and I also am optimistic that once this site is up, it is going to be up in time for the largest number of people to enroll, because as you said in response to Senator Bennet's questions, the reality is, is that the vast majority of people are going to be looking for coverage as the enrollment date draws near."
