- Republicans stake out new attacks on 'Obamacare'
With President Barack Obama mounting a weeks-long offensive supporting the rebooted health care website, Republicans are lining up their own pre-election campaigns attacking the controversial law as disastrous for Americans. Aside from continued legal challenges to the Affordable Care Act, critics are broadening their arsenal in the battle against the three-year-old law, as they expand on the debacle of the Healthcare.gov rollout to keep the controversy alive in the minds of voters.
