“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.”
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.
