- 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.

"You're going to hear about Obamacare from the Republicans for the next year, and you will hear about the government shutdown from the Democrats for the next year, and those competing messages and competing images for the Republican Party are what are going to shape people's choices in 2014," Duke University political scientist David Rohde told AFP.
