Aetna CEO says Supreme Court won't drop entire health law

The health-care overhaul's future hinges on the outcome of this year's races for Congress and the White House and, beyond that, discussions over how to trim the U.S. debt and budget deficit, Mark Bertolini, head of the nation's third-biggest health insurer, said today during an investor conference.
