WASHINGTON (AP) -- Republicans aren't impressed with the change announced Thursday by President Barack Obama in his health care law.
For at least the next year, Obama will be giving insurance companies the option of continuing to offer policies that would otherwise be canceled.
But House Speaker John Boehner says the only solution to the problems with the health care law is to scrap it completely. He says, "It's just not fixable."
Obama Thursday noted that the first-month enrollment numbers in health care plans under his law are lagging, and he said he isn't happy about it. He said that "we fumbled the roll-out" of the program. And he vowed to build a better health care system for every American and "get it right."
