Upton Claims Votes to Repeal Health Care Law

Rep. Fred Upton (R-MI) told Fox News that House Republicans have enough votes to repeal the health care law.

Said Upton: "As part of our pledge we said that we would bring up a vote to repeal health care early. That will happen before the president's State of the Union address. We have 242 Republicans. There will be a significant number of Democrats, I think, that will join us. You will remember when that vote passed in the House, last March; it only passed by seven votes."

Republicans don't expect the effort to get past the Senate but their strategy is to go after it provision by provision, which they think might work.
