Obama Pulls Plug on Part of Health Overhaul Law

The Obama administration's signature health overhaul law, under relentless assault by Republicans, has suffered its first major casualty -- a long-term care insurance plan dogged from the beginning by doubts over its financial solvency.

The program became the first casualty in the political and policy wars over the health care law. It had been expected to launch in 2013.

Proponents, including many groups that fought to pass the health care law, have vowed a vigorous effort to rescue the program, insisting that Congress gave the administration broad authority to make changes. Long-term care includes not only nursing homes, but such services as home health aides for disabled people.
