After a year-long struggle, Barack Obama, the US president, managed to gather enough support for it in the House just earlier this week.
On Tuesday, he signed the historic $938bn health overhaul that gurantees coverage for 32 million uninsured US citizens.
While the reforms were signed into law, its amendments are still to be finalised. And now Republicans, who strongly oppose the reforms, are using technality to delay the bill.
Meanwhile, some democrats who supported the bill are having a hard time. They have been subjected to vandalism and death threats. The FBI has been called in to investigate.
Just how would Barack Obama sell the bill after he has signed it into law? And what impact, if at all, would it have on Obama's presidency as a whole and the mid-tern Congress election coming up?
