Senator Manchin and Entire Staff Sign Up on Health Care Exchanges

42 staff members, including Manchin, enrolled today

Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) today announced that he and his entire staff have enrolled in the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchanges.

“Today, my staff and I joined the thousands of Americans who signed up for the Affordable Care Act’s health insurance exchanges. I’ve always said that this should be a transition year to give the American people a chance to shop around for the best and most affordable insurance plans for themselves and their families. We are all aware that there have been colossal failures and missteps during the implementation of this law, and there are many policies within the Affordable Care Act that must be fixed. However, there are also many good aspects to the law that offer more health services to millions of hardworking Americans. I will continue to work with my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to fix this law’s many problems while keeping its positive aspects.”
