Manchin: Obama has 'product problem'

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) said Thursday the Obama administration faces more problems than just the rollout of ObamaCare.

“They have more than a rollout problem; there’s a product problem. We’ve got to make sure that the products are there. The market will determine that product,” he said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.”

Manchin has been outspoken about the problems associated with the rollout. He’s repeatedly called for a delay in ObamaCare’s insurance mandate.

He and Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) have co-sponsored a bill that would allow people to keep their current health insurance plans under ObamaCare — fulfilling the promise President Obama made to the public before Congress passed the law and in the run-up to his reelection.

Millions of people have already received cancellation notices, however, from their current insurers because of the law’s new regulations.

“We’ve all said things I think we’d like to take back,” Manchin said Thursday.

Former President Clinton, along with a number of lawmakers, has been pressuring Obama to honor his promise.
