With many states in the midst of post-primary fever, and November 2 just around the corner, last spring's health care reform bill--which has yet to enter the implementation stage--is still very much on many people's lips and minds.

"It appears that Democrats are having a hard time persuading Americans that passing health care reform this spring, the Affordable Care Act (ACA), was a good thing. The stakes are high. Republican Congressional candidates are running to repeal it, and while a repeal effort will fail as long as Barack Obama is president, a Congress that requires Republican support to pass anything may be able to delay implementation of key parts of the law. The irony is that, although the law is imperfect, the case for support is very strong. "
