Washington (CNN) – The Senate’s second-ranking Democrat said President Barack Obama has put forward a sufficient measure administratively for addressing canceled health plans under Obamacare, adding that Congress didn’t have to act.

“There is no need for a legislative fix for this issue. Instead, Congress should continue to work with the administration to improve the implementation of the law and redouble our efforts highlighting and explaining what this historic law will mean for 40 million Americans without insurance,” said Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Illinois.
