It's been a year since the Affordable Care Act launched in Illinois. The state says 685,000 people have taken advantage of the law --- more than expected.

Monday was the final day for most people to sign up for health insurance this year under the Affordable Care Act.  Two prominent Illinois Republicans say the state could face some big problems down the road because of the program.
