Transcript for White House Announces Extension to 'Keep Your Plan'
Okay, Martha, thanks very much. To Washington and that major new change to obamacare announced by the white house. If you like your plan, you can keep it for two more years and Jon Karl joins us. A big concession to the law's critics. Reporter: That's right, George. This is the latest in a series of changes and delays to that health care law. This one will allow people to keep their insurance policies for another two years even if they don't meet the minimum standards set by the health care law. These are policies that the white house has called inadequate, substandard but by extending them and allowing people to keep those policy, it prevents a situation, George, where hundreds of thousands of Americans could have received cancellation notices later this year just before the midterm election. And, Jon, as robin pointed out, the white house pushing so hard to get pore signed up for obamacare. Where does that stand? Reporter: You know, the goal they set some time ago was 7 million people to be enrolled. They're not going to meet that goal, virtually impossible but the white house is bullish and says enrollme moment has picked up and think they'll come close. They won't hit 7 million though. Thanks very much.
