  1. As Obama's term winds down, Dems yearn to take 'Obamacare' reforms further

    National

    WASHINGTON — More Democrats seem to be having doubts about the federal health care law, a contentious issue for most of President Barack Obama's tenure and one of the defining elements of his legacy.

    Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders waves after speaking at a July 30 rally with registered nurses and other community leaders celebrate the 50th anniversary of Medicare and Medicaid, on Capitol Hill in Washington. With the Obama administration counting down its final year, many Democrats are finding less to like about the president's health care law, unsure about its place among their party's achievements. Sanders' call for "Medicare for all" seems to have rekindled aspirations for bigger changes beyond "Obamacare." That poses a challenge for Hillary Clinton, who has argued that the health care law is working and the nation needs to build on it, not start over. [Associated Press]
