Transcript for President Bill Clinton Weighs in on Obamacare
And tonight a rough new poll number for the president. For the first time a majority, 52 percent say the president is not honest and trustworthy. People felt misled about getting insurance through obama care and now president clinton is adding salt to the stumble. Reporter: Today bill clinton said what president obama's harshest critics have been saying. That he may need to the change the health care law to help the millions of people who have seen their insurance cancelled, despite his promise that would not happen. I personally believe even if it takes a change in the law, the president should honor the commitment the federal government made to those people and let them keep what they got. Reporter: The president himself apologized to those who have lost coverage but the white house has opposed efforts to change the law. Later this week the administration will finally tell us how many people have managed to enroll in new health coverage despite the problems with the website. Is there any number that would be so low that you would say alarm bells are going off, we have a problem? The only expectations I'll set is that we expect to be low. Reporter: An abc news analysis of administration documents suggests fewer than 50,00 people have been able to enroll through healthcar.Gov. Dan howard of pennsylvania got notice last month his insurance is being cancelled. After spending more than 40 hours including today trying to enroll on the website and over the phone, he is still out of luck. It's hour after hour after hour just trying to find the answer to the question, where am I going to have my insurance and what's it going to cost. Reporter: The white house said today the president's team is looking at options to those who have lost their coverage but it's unclear what they would do. In fact the president's team has not even presented options to the president yet. Thank you, jon. We want to tell you next tonight about a drama under way
