Local Students Awarded For Obamacare Enrollments Days Before Trump Lays Siege To Law
The White House awarded two local college students for their work signing up young people for the Affordable Care Act just days before House Republicans, led by President Trump, took initial steps toward gutting the healthcare law. Those students, Alexa Rivera and Vincente Lopez, visited on behalf of Bakersfield College, which, along with about 60 other colleges, took part in the White House Healthy Campus Challenge. That challenge asked campus leaders to encourage young people to sign up for health insurance, noting the high number of youths who have not yet enrolled. (Pierce, 1/23)
