Republicans reinforce mission to destroy healthcare reform

While the bipartisan deal last week ended the government shutdown and left healthcare reform unharmed, Republicans intend to capitalize on health exchange glitches for the 2014 congressional elections, the Associated Press reported.

The GOP hopes problems with Affordable Care Act implementation will hurt four Democratic senators who face re-election in GOP-leaning states for the first time since they voted for the healthcare reform law in 2009, and their defeat is critical to giving the GOP a chance at a Senate majority.
