President Barack Obama has been emboldened by the Supreme Court's decision to uphold the health law, and he's now embracing it while campaigning, just as Republican rival Mitt Romney steps back from it.

Obama sees a second chance to sell voters on the issue despite deep skepticism about it from many people. Romney is avoiding answering hard questions about how he'd tackle healthcare, and thus missing the chance to energize voters who oppose the law.

The primary focus of Obama's speeches remains the economy. But the court's favorable ruling appears to have freed Obama to speak about the law more passionately and emphatically than before.

In a tight race, Romney is hampered by his support for a healthcare measure similar to Obama's while he was Massachusetts governor.
