Is Obamacare on table for 'fiscal cliff' talks?

The Christian Science Monitor, November 26, 2012

The reality is that aspects of President Obama's health reforms likely will be discussed when negotiations over the so-called "fiscal cliff" heat up. But another reality is that Obamacare is now the law of the land, and isn't going to be repealed or changed in any major way as a result of a final fiscal deal.
