Two of the candidates vying to serve in U.S. Senate want to repeal President Barack Obama's new health care law while the other two want to keep and improve the act.
Former Gov. Mike Rounds, a Republican, wants to repeal "Obamacare" and replace it with a market-based system that creates competition.
Democrat Rick Weiland says the act should be kept and improved. He wants to open Medicare to people of all ages.
Independent candidate Larry Pressler says he wants to keep the law and fix the problems. He says lawmakers should compromise on tort reform and oversight of a board tasked with containing Medicare spending.
Independent candidate Gordon Howie wants to repeal the law, saying recent troubles at the VA show why the federal government should not run health care.
