WASHINGTON -- Although health care reform is now the law of the land, President Barack Obama is still campaigning across the U.S. to persuade the public it's a good idea.
"This health care tax credit is pro- jobs, it's pro- business and it starts this year," Obama said.
However, as the president hits the road again Friday, polls show he has a lot of convincing to do.
According to a USA Today/Gallup poll, nearly two-thirds of Americans fear the massive legislation will increase their costs and decrease their quality of care.
In addition, 53 percent of those surveyed called the method congressional Democrats used to pass the bill "an abuse of power."
Now, just months before the mid-term elections, Republican lawmakers are promising change.
"We'll stop this sleazy Chicago-style sausage making that went on behind closed doors," Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz. said.
While the president is expected to be visible promoting health care reform through November, Democratic lawmakers who voted for the legislation are keeping a low profile over this Easter recess.
