Washington, CA — While he indicated that it is not perfect, Congressman Tom McClintock spoke on the US House Floor about the benefits of approving the GOP’s healthcare plan.
McClintock was Thursday’s KVML “Newsmaker of the Day”.
We reported last week that McClintock was uncertain if he would support the Republican plan, but based on his latest comments, he is now in favor. McClintock stated, “I wish it did everything necessary to restore an optimal health insurance market. But it moves us toward that goal, and even as a stand-along measure, I am confident it will ultimately create a market in most states that will produce better services, greater choices and lower costs for the vast majority of Americans.”

Governor Jerry Brown is also in Washington, DC this week arguing that lawmakers should deny the plan. Click here to read an earlier story with the opinions of Governor Brown.
McClintock, a Republican, represents House District Four which covers the Mother Lode and much of the greater Sierra Nevada region.
The “Newsmaker of the Day” is heard every weekday morning at 6:45, 7:45 and 8:45 on AM 1450 and FM 102.7 KVML.
