President Obama failed to put jittery Democrats at ease Thursday with a proposal he said would allow millions of people to keep their insurance plans under the Affordable Care Act.
Democrats facing tough reelection races in 2014 praised Obama’s proposed administrative fix but said it did not go far enough.
“It’s not a magic wand that makes every other concern disappear. The website’s not working, that’s still a problem,” said a Senate Democratic aide.
Several vulnerable Democrats said they would still pursue legislation to shield people from policy cancellations despite receiving discouragement from their leadership.
