Two families, two small-business owners, two views on health care law

Washington (CNN) – For an issue such as health care reform - and the potential to affect nearly American in a fundamental way - no one provision, no one medical crisis, no one family can fully represent the complexity and sweep of the Affordable Care Act.

But the polar views of small-business owners John Nicholson and Miles Fawcett provide a glimpse of the personal stakes and deep divide that will be felt across the social, political and legal tapestry. That signature law promoted by President Barack Obama is now being challenged at the Supreme Court.

Romney on health care: Then and now

(CNN) – On the two-year anniversary of the Affordable Care Act, Republican presidential candidates are turning up the heat on front-runner Mitt Romney, blasting the former Massachusetts governor for providing a "blueprint" they claim led to President Barack Obama's controversial health care reform.

Among the attacks, rivals point to an op-ed Romney wrote in 2009, in which he recommended the Bay State's health care plan as a model for the federal government.

BORGER: Do Gingrich, Santorum know how to lose?

(CNN) - So we're at a point in the campaign where health care reform is about to go on trial at the Supreme Court, unemployment remains high and gas prices are skyrocketing.

As for the GOP presidential wannabes, they're arguing over, um, an Etch A Sketch metaphor bungled by a Mitt Romney staffer. ("You can kind of shake it up and we start all over again," Romney senior adviser Eric Fehrnstrom told CNN this week.)

Republicans slam Obama on health care at two year mark

Washington (CNN) - As expected, Republicans are attacking President Barack Obama on the second anniversary of his signing of the landmark and controversial health care reform measure into law.

"Today is the two-year anniversary of ObamaCare, but President Obama is not celebrating. He would rather Americans forget about his signature 'accomplishment,' because today it is a massive, undeniable failure and a heap of broken promises," says Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus, in a statement Friday.

Obama taps Dartmouth chief to head World Bank

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - President Obama will nominate Dr. Jim Yong Kim, the president of Dartmouth College, to be the next president of the World Bank, an administration source told CNN on Friday.

Kim's background is in medicine, not economics or business as has been the case with previous World Bank presidents. He has worked with international organizations as a senior official at the World Health Organization.
