Dem push for health law rooted in demographics
San Francisco Chronicle

While much of America was upset about the botched rollout of President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul, most Democrats in Congress were still willing to give the law a chance to work. Without the law, many of their constituents wouldn’t have health insurance. No new law has been more polarizing during Obama’s presidency. It passed in 2010 without a single Republican vote, and GOP lawmakers have been railing against it ever since. House Republicans have voted more than 50 times to repeal all or parts of the law. Almost all of their changes died in the Democratic-controlled Senate.
