Democrats To McCarthy: Repealing Obamacare Will Hurt Your District The Most
As House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy leads the charge to gut and replace the Affordable Care Act in Washington, a group of California senators held a hearing in his hometown Thursday to highlight what they said would be the horrible repercussions here. They did not invite McCarthy or critics of the health care law to speak. Members of the state Senate Committee on Health, as well as patients and speakers from the health care and nonprofit world, hammered the congressman and other Republicans for, in their words, making “repeal and replace Obamacare” their war cry while offering no specific replacement plan.

California Senator Holds Hearing In Support Of Obamacare

Ed Hernandez, D-Azusa, should congressional Republicans repeal the federal health care law, as promised, without a sufficient replacement plan. (Hart, 1/19)
