The GOP hopes problems with Affordable Care Act implementation will hurt four Democratic senators who face re-election in GOP-leaning states for the first time since they voted for the healthcare reform law in 2009, and their defeat is critical to giving the GOP a chance at a Senate majority.

"The bottom line is these candidates will have to answer for why they voted for this bill," Rob Engstrom, senior vice president and national political director for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, told the AP.
