Wal-Mart goes for mandatory insurance

WASHINGTON (AP) — Wal-Mart a huge company once criticized for less than generous employee benefits, has embraced President Barack Obama’s call for requiring all large employers to offer health insurance to their workers.

The move, joined by a major labor union that sometimes assails Wal-Mart, could add momentum to Obama’s push for far-reaching changes to the nation’s health care system, which Congress is weighing.

Wal-Mart, the nation’s largest private employer, announced its position in a letter to congressional and administration officials Tuesday.
