Locked in a deepening struggle with President Barack Obama, the Republican-controlled House pushed legislation toward passage Saturday night imposing a one-year delay on parts of the nation's new health care law and repealing a tax on medical devices as the price for avoiding a partial government shutdown in a few days' time.
About half the people who now buy their own health insurance— and potentially would face higher premiums next year under President Barack Obama's health care law— would qualify for federal tax credits to offset rate shock, according to a new private study.
Democratic governors say they are nervous about getting the new federal health care law implemented but add they will be better positioned in next year's elections than many of their Republican counterparts who have resisted the far-reaching and politically polarizing measure.
