President Obama launched a three-week public relations blitz Tuesday to tout the benefits of his signature legislation.
"Our poor execution in the first couple months on the website clouded the fact that there are a whole bunch of people who stand to benefit," Obama said. "Now that the website's working for the vast majority of people, we need to make sure that folks refocus on what's at stake here."
But Republicans aren't buying it.
"This bill is fundamentally flawed. It's causing people to lose the doctor of their choice, causing them to lose their health plan and if that isn't enough, they're having to pay much higher prices at the same time," House Speaker John Boehner said at press conference.
So how does this fight end?

Washington (CNN) – What a difference a month makes.
A new CNN/ORC International poll indicates a dramatic turnaround in the battle for control of Congress in next year's midterm elections.
Democrats a month ago held a 50%-42% advantage among registered voters in a generic ballot, which asked respondents to choose between a Democrat or Republican in their congressional district without identifying the candidates.
That result came after congressional Republicans appeared to overplay their hand in the bitter fight over the federal government shutdown and the debt ceiling.
But the Democratic lead has disappeared. A new CNN/ORC poll indicates the GOP now holds a 49%-47% edge.
The new survey was conducted last week and released Tuesday.
The 10-point swing follows a political uproar over Obamacare, which included the botched rollout of HealthCare.gov and controversy over insurance policy cancelations due primarily to the new health law.

Senate Democrats hit the red button, the nuclear button. In one vote, they've changed an almost 40-year-old Senate rule.
By a 52-48 vote, the Senate ended the ability of minority Republicans to continue using filibusters to block some of President Barack Obama's judicial and executive nominations.
Republicans are on the warpath.
"This changes everything, this changes everything," veteran GOP Sen. John McCain of Arizona told reporters. He blamed newer Democratic senators who never served as the minority party for pushing the issue, adding: "They succeeded and they will pay a very, very heavy price for it."

Washington (CNN) – It's becoming a daily story: another national poll, another all-time low for President Barack Obama when it comes to his approval rating.
Wednesday morning it's CBS News. The President's approval rating stands at 37% in their new survey, plunging nine percentage points since last month–a new low for Obama in CBS News polling. The President's disapproval rating shot up from 49% in October to 57% now, a new high.
The President's approval rating has now reached new lows or tied his all-time lows in polls released over the past three weeks from CBS News, ABC News/Washington Post, Quinnipiac University, National Journal Heartland Monitor, and NBC News/Wall Street Journal.
A CNN Poll of Polls, compiled and released Wednesday morning, which averages the three latest non-partisan, live operator national surveys of the President's approval rating (CBS News, Gallup Daily Tracking, and ABC News/Washington Post), puts Obama's approval at 40% and his disapproval at 55%.
