In government shutdown, Obamacare just rolls on

This handout photo provided by the Brookings Institution, and taken on June 25, 2013, shows Health and Human Services Director of the Center for Consumer Information and Insurance Oversight Gary Cohen speaking at the Institution in Washington. A partial government shutdown next week would leave the major parts of President Barack Obama’s health care law in place and humming right along. That’s according to former Democratic and Republican budget officials, as well as the Obama administration itself. "Many of the core parts of the health care law are funded through mandatory appropriations and wouldn’t be affected," Cohen, the HHS official overseeing the health care rollout, told reporters this week.
