'Extenders' deal could include Cadillac tax delay

The broader tax package includes non-health-related provisions, and if negotiations for that overall package succeed, the healthcare provisions are likely to be included in the final deal, lobbyists tell the publication.

Still, it's unclear whether the deal will come together at all despite Democrats' best efforts, as Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa) noted that "negotiations aren't going very well." Article
