This Is Where All Of California's House Republicans Stand On The GOP Healthcare Bill
Less than two days before they are scheduled to vote, a handful of California’s 14 Republican members of Congress say they are still weighing how to vote on the GOP plan to undo and replace parts of the Affordable Care Act. California’s 38 House Democrats have lined up pretty firmly against the bill, as have most of the chamber’s Democrats, so Republicans are on their own to pass the bill. House Republicans can afford to lose up to 20 members and still pass it with a simple majority. (Wire, 3/21)

'Die-In' At Issa's Office Protests Changes To Health Care
With Congress set to vote on health care this week, hundreds of protesters staged what they dubbed a ‘die-in’ Tuesday outside the Vista office of U.S. Rep Darrell Issa. The event was part protest, part street theater, with many of the 300-plus participants lying on the lawn, holding signs shaped like tombstones. Organizers put the number of attendees near 380...This week’s theme centered on the potential repeal of the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, and its possible replacement with the American Health Care Act introduced by House Republicans.
