The Wall Street Journal: House GOP sees eroding support for revised health bill

WASHINGTON — The latest Republican effort to reshape the nation’s health-care system teetered on the brink of collapse in the House, reflecting a new assertiveness by GOP centrists, a group that in recent years has rarely wielded such power.

Rep. Fred Upton (R., Mich.), an influential former committee chairman who is considering a Senate bid next year, said Tuesday he was opposed to the current version of the bill, delivering a major blow to the GOP leaders’ effort to overhaul the Affordable Care Act, commonly known as Obamacare.

GOP leaders said late Tuesday they were still sewing up support for the bill, but the ranks of Republicans opposed or undecided on the bill swelled to numbers almost large enough to derail it.
