WH: Obama and Clinton Agree on Fixing Law

President Obama agrees with Bill Clinton’s call to honor the promise made to those who have lost their insurance plans as a result of Obamacare, including by possibly changing the law, according to White House press secretary Jay Carney.

In an interview earlier Tuesday, Clinton said accommodations should be made for those whose plans have been terminated: “I personally believe, even if it means a change to the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got.”
