FILE – In this Aug. 31, 2009, file photo supporters on both sides of the health care reform issue argue in Skokie, Ill., outside a town hall meeting held by U.S. Rep. Jan Schakowsky, who represents Chicago. With a nation still split over the Affordable Care Act Schakowsky, a long-time supporter of coverage for the insured, is predicting vindication for the health overhaul legislation once people see how the program really works. “It’s harder to sell what is a pretty new idea for Americans while it is still in the abstract,” she said. “I think as people experience it, they’re going to love it, much like Medicare.” (AP Photo/ Jim Prisching, File)
