Mich Lawmaker: Go After Health Care Piece By Piece

A top House Republican says GOP lawmakers will go after President Barack Obama’s health care law piece by piece to see if they can make it crumble.
  
That effort, says Rep. Fred Upton of Michigan, will follow a vote to repeal the health care law outright. Such a vote could come early in the new year after the GOP takes control of the House.
  
Upton is the incoming chairman of the House Energy and Commerce Committee, and he says that repealing the health care law is his top priority. He’s hoping for a vote before Obama’s State of the Union address.
  
Repeal will be difficult because of the president’s veto power. But Upton says he thinks Republicans can garner enough Democratic support to override a veto.
  
Upton appeared on “Fox News Sunday.”
