Obama, White House Boosting Health Law at 6 months

FALLS CHURCH, Va. (AP) -- Polling shows the law remains unpopular with much of the public and that many people don't know what's in it. With crucial midterm elections six weeks away, the White House is undertaking an effort to tell people what's in the law that will help them.

Obama held a health care discussion Tuesday with about 20 people gathered in the sunny backyard of home in suburban Falls Church, Va. He said he sought the new law because rising health care costs were "bankrupting families, companies and our government."
