    Democrats assumed earlier this year that ObamaCare would be a political advantage by Election Day. North Carolina Sen. Kay Hagan, for example, said in February she wanted to show the Affordable Care Act “is something whose time is come.” A month later Colorado Sen. Mark Udall said “we did the right thing” in passing the law and told voters he “would do it again,” a response echoed by incumbents Mark Pryor (Arkansas) and Mary Landrieu (Louisiana). It isn’t working out that way. As the election nears, ObamaCare is re-emerging as a major liability for the Democratic Senate that passed it....

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich said Sunday that he strongly supports a federal mandate requiring citizens to buy health insurance – a position that has been rejected by many Republicans, including several who likely will be running against him for the Republican presidential nomination. Appearing on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” Gingrich told host David Gregory that he continues to advocate for a plan he first called for in the early 1990s as a Congressman, which requires every uninsured citizen to purchase or acquire health insurance.

    House Republicans and Democrats alike plan to aggressively tout their positions on health-care reform over the five-week August recess, as both sides see an opportunity to shift public opinion on the issue before members return to vote on a plan in September. With the House expected to leave for recess on Friday, Democratic leaders have urged members to use town halls and other events to get away from the complicated debates on subjects such as a government-insurance option that have resounded in Washington and focus instead on simpler issues, such as telling voters that the legislation will bar insurance companies...
