A government shutdown once touted as the “last, best chance” to fight ObamaCare is set to end with hardly any changes to the law.

Although the shutdown originated as a GOP plan to force President Obama to defund his signature legislation, Republicans came away without any substantive changes to ObamaCare.

The agreement that Senate leaders announced Wednesday includes only one ObamaCare provision, lawmakers said. It requires more rigorous income verification when people apply for new tax subsidies to help cover the cost of their premiums.
