CONGRESSMAN REACT TO HEALTH BILL

Republicans in the U.S. House have released a draft of their new health care proposal. Bakersfield Congressman Kevin McCarthy says it would protect those covered by Medicaid and people with preexisting conditions. He also said not replacing Obamacare has never been an option despite calls to leave the Affordable Care Act in place. Congressman David Valadao of Hanford says he looks forward to reviewing the plan, but says it’s important that his constituents continue to be covered.
