Republican efforts to repeal the health overhaul law will be a central focus for the party when the 112th Congress convenes in January, while Democrats will fight repeal or any significant changes to the measure. Kaiser Health News recently interviewed two lawmakers Rep. Michael Burgess, R-Tex., and Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., to get their take on how the health care debate may play out in the months ahead.
