Medicare chief steps down, ran healthcare rollout
from The Associated Press via ABC News
Medicare's top administrator unexpectedly resigned, becoming the latest casualty in the turmoil over the president's healthcare law, which is still struggling for acceptance even as millions benefit from expanded coverage. Marilyn Tavenner's departure underscores the uncertainty overshadowing President Barack Obama's healthcare law nearly five years after its party-line passage by a then-Democratic-led Congress. The Supreme Court will hear a challenge to the legality of the law's financial subsidies this spring, and a new Republican Congress is preparing more repeal votes.
