The White House is facing what the New York Times calls "a growing revolt" from some Democrats over the rise in health care spending.
The president made keeping costs low an important piece of his health care agenda. But the New York Times has reported many experts are skeptical the bills would even come close to meeting that goal.
The current plan, already passed by the House, carries a hefty price tag of more than a trillion dollars over the next decade.
As Sen. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., put it: "the legislation is heavy on health and light on reform."
