With about half the states in the nation suing to overturn the new health care law, President Barack Obama is offering to let states unhappy with his health care overhaul design their own plans.   At a meeting in Washington, the president told the nation’s governors their plans would need to be as affordable and comprehensive as the federal  law  and cover at least as many people all without increasing the deficit.

The push to cover the uninsured comes in 2014,when it is expected that many middle-class households will be able to buy subsidized
coverage through new state-based insurance markets, and low-income people would be signed up for Medicaid.
