GOP governors walk balance beam on health law

ATLANTA (AP) - Republican governors who long opposed President Barack Obama's remake of the health insurance market are struggling to square their opposition with the new law's requirements as it starts to take effect.
   
This is particularly true among Republicans like Florida Gov. Rick Scott, who has been a leading critic of the legislation, and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, whose national aspirations are clear.
   
The risks also are acute for governors in Democratic-leaning or swing-voting states or who know their records will be parsed should they seek the presidency in 2016 or beyond.
