When asked about losing the support of Democrats in Congress over issues consumers have been experiencing with the new law, Carney again demurred.

"Politics follows policy here," Carney said. "The president is concerned about getting implementation of the Affordable Care Act right."

Obama met with Senate Democrats up for re-election in 2014 last week and met with House Democrats on Wednesday.

A few Democratic senators have announced their support for bill that requires insurers to let people with plans in the individual market to keep their insurance as long as the carrier remains in the market.
