The Bakersfield Californian:
Covered California Bus Tour Coming Through Bakersfield Saturday
Vowing to “set the record straight” amid mixed messages from Washington about the future of the Affordable Care Act, healthcare leaders from Covered California, the state’s insurance marketplace, are stopping Saturday in Bakersfield as part of a statewide tour encouraging people sign up as enrollment season begins. The ACA, commonly referred to as Obamacare, has been under threat this year from President Donald J. Trump, who has vowed to “repeal and replace” the act. Republican leaders have failed to make good on that campaign promise thus far, but the Trump administration has slashed funding to advertise enrollment periods, which began Wednesday and end Jan. 31.
