Estes Park, Colo. (AP) - Colorado's members of Congress head back to Washington next week to take up a polarizing health care overhaul after meeting with constituents during the August recess.

The state's five Democrats and two Republicans have been cheered and booed in almost equal measure over the last month. Their meetings ranged from small groups to throngs of people gathered outside a grocery store.

The question is whether those meetings will shape the health debate as Congress resumes work.

It doesn't appear any of Colorado's members have changed their positions significantly, though they say the meetings were valuable to gauge public opinions on the debate.
