G.O.P. Scrambles as a Crucial Voice Shuns the Latest Health Bill

WASHINGTON  With two days left before an 11-day recess and no vote scheduled, House Republican leaders worked on Tuesday to win votes one at a time for their latest bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act after an influential Republican voice on health care came out against the measure.

.

A failure to get the repeal bill to a vote this week would be the third time that Speaker Paul D. Ryan could not rally his considerable House majority around a legislative priority that Republicans have promised for seven years.

.

Republican leaders were ready to move on from health care after the embarrassing collapse of their measure in March, but President Trump pressed Mr. Ryan hard to deliver on a major campaign promise and personally pressured House members to fall into line.

.

If the effort fails, it will greatly weaken the presidents hand on Capitol Hill and cast a shadow across the rest of his legislative agenda, especially the deep tax cuts and rewrite of the tax code that he has proposed  and that are likely to be no easier to tackle than health care.

.

Representative Fred Upton of Michigan was only the latest Republican defector, but he carries more sway than most. The former chairman of one of the House committees that drafted the American Health Care Act, as the Republicans call their measure, Mr. Upton said the latest version of the health care bill torpedoes protections for people with pre-existing medical conditions.

.

Mr. Upton, who led the House Energy and Commerce Committee as the repeal movement built steam, declared on a local radio show, I cannot support this bill with this provision in it, just as Mr. Ryan was insisting that the legislation would protect the sick.

.

The loss of Mr. Upton, who has served in the House for 30 years, was a huge blow to Republicans, who had hoped to get the bill through the House by Thursday, before lawmakers go home again and face pressure from constituents. The Upton decision, which could give other Republicans cover to defect, came as party leaders faced an onslaught of advocacy groups saying the bill would harm the nations most vulnerable citizens  and as a late-night talk show host, Jimmy Kimmel, made an emotional appeal.

.

A tearful Mr. Kimmel on Monday night told the story of his infant son, Billy, who was born with heart defects and had surgery. Mr. Kimmel pleaded with Congress not to undermine the Affordable Care Acts ban on discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions.

.

States cant leave people with pre-existing conditions high and dry, Mr. MacArthur said Tuesday, defending his proposal.

.

But the MacArthur amendment has distressed some Republicans because of concerns that it would allow states to gut protections for consumers.

.

Representative Tom Rooney, Republican of Florida, said he was leaning yes on the repeal bill, but agonizing over how to explain his vote to constituents.

.

I have a lot of people who call my office on a daily basis who are extremely angry, he said. Its not just because Im a Republican, but because they are sincerely scared.
