A former top aide to President Barack Obama is returning to the White House to coordinate policy aspects of the healthcare law.

Phil Schiliro was Obama's top liaison to Capitol Hill when he helped push the law through Congress in early 2010.

He left the White House about two years ago and moved to New Mexico, where he opened a business consulting nonprofit group.

In a statement provided by the White House, Schiliro says he wants to help the effort to put the law in place because it's important to Obama and because it's "worth fighting for."

The New York Times first reported on Schiliro's return.
