Is Obamacare Really on 'Life Support?'

Hosted by

The troubled roll-out of healthcare.gov and televised hearings on Capitol Hill have taken the wind out of Obamacare. The President's false reassurances have hardly enhanced its image. But the Affordable Care Act is a massive undertaking. In some states with their own exchanges, people who've never had health insurance are able to sign up. In other places, there's evidence of intentional sabotage. We look at the goals of health insurance reform and early successes as well as failures.
