Here's part of President Obama's record on health care.
Bringing Down Costs: One of Republicans’ favorite criticisms is that the law will not lower health care costs. While total health care spending has continued to grow during Obama’s first term, 2010 was the first year that Medicare spending per beneficiary grew at a much slower rate than the norm.(AP Photo/Charles Dharapak)
Exchanges: The Health and Human Services Department is prodding states to set up their own health insurance exchanges by 2013, when the federal government has to approve them for operation in 2014. Although HHS has given out billions in start-up grants, many states have moved at a glacial pace or not at all to get these complex operations off the ground.(AP Photo/Haraz N. Ghanbari)
Insurance Regulations: HHS has been churning out regulations at record speed to overhaul how the insurance industry operates. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services is now the federal regulator-in-chief of insurance companies.(AP Photo/Carolyn Kaster, File)
