Health overhaul anniversary: where do you stand?

DENVER (AP) - Colorado may be as divided as the nation on whether to celebrate or protest the second anniversary of the new health care law.

Supporters on the left including Democratic Rep. Diana DeGette of Denver are marking the occasion Friday with a forum on women's health.

A few blocks away, protesters are gathering outside the state Capitol at the same time to decry parts of the law, the signature achievement of President Barack Obama.

The president's re-election campaigners - along with progressive groups aligned with Democrats - have been heavily promoting the Affordable Care Act. Others point out that the law faces a challenge in the U.S. Supreme Court starting Monday.

Campaigning has been especially intense in Colorado, a swing state considered a must-win for both parties in November.
