President Barack Obama has a message for Republicans who say they'll try to repeal his health care overhaul: "Go for it."
Obama says those who try to overturn the sweeping changes will have to face voters who see immediate benefits from the law.
Speaking at the University of Iowa on Thursday, Obama cited changes including tax breaks for small businesses and a requirement that insurance companies allow young adults to stay on their parents'
insurance until age 26.
Other reforms will take up to four years to implement.
No Republicans voted for the nearly $1 trillion overhaul, and some in the GOP are vowing to repeal it.
Obama signed the bill into law on Tuesday.
His trip to Iowa is the first of many appearances where he'll try to sell the health care overhaul to the public.
