Little government response to bombing a year later

FILE - This April 15, 2013 file photo shows medical workers aid injured people following an explosion at the finish line of the 2013 Boston Marathon in Boston. In the days after the Boston Marathon bombing, the nation’s political leaders pledged resources and support for a city grappling with the first terrorist attack on American soil since Sept. 11, 2001. But nearly a year after homemade bombs ripped through the marathon's finish line, there is little evidence of any lasting impact on the political world. Federal funding that helps cities prepare for terrorism may be cut. And state and federal officials have enacted virtually no policy changes in response to the attack, a dramatic departure from previous acts of terrorism that prompted a wave of government action.

Scott Applewhite, File) WASHINGTON (AP) — With enrollments higher than expected, and costs lower, some Democrats say it's time to stop hiding from the president's health care overhaul, even in this year's toughest Senate elections.
