Sen. Claire McCaskill Thursday compared the Obamacare website to a store that's open, but the door is locked, barring people from entering to shop for health insurance options.

"It's really important that people get in the store, because if they don't get in the store, the prices continue to go up for everyone who's going to shop later," the Missouri Democrat said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."

To clear up all the "misinformation" about Obamacare, McCaskill said she was confident the problems with the website launch and with people losing their current insurance coverage would be resolved.

"I think we can get it fixed. But, I do think we are going have to take some kind of reparative action to reassure people that we are trying to get it fixed," she said.

McCaskill said it was important to encourage people to participate in Obamacare to create "enough of a pool that it brings down the cost for everyone." She indicated she wasn't sure what bill among several being discussed, the Senate would end up voting on to correct some of the healthcare law's problems.

"There's something we need to vote on, that would allow some kind of help to this situation. It may be the [Louisiana Sen. Mary] Landrieu bill, and, it may be something else," McCaskill said. "If we delay encouraging people to get in the pool, it has consequences for average Americans."
