From a report at the link below:
Tucked inside the "fiscal cliff" deal is a provision repealing the CLASS Act, a giant unfunded mandate that was part of President Obama's health care law.
The CommunityLiving Assistance Services and Supports program was a priority of the late Sen. Edward M. Kennedy (pictured), Massachusetts Democrat, and was designed to create a program for long-term care for the functionally disabled.
Obama halted the program, saying he couldn't find a way to make it cost-effective.
When Republicans tried to repeal it outright, he objected because he wanted to keep it on the books and try to amend it later rather than kill it.
Obama did an about-face this week, accepting repeal in exchange for raising taxrates on the wealthiest thereby repealing a part of ObamaCare.
