Rep. McCarthy guests on “The Ralph Bailey Show” to discuss Obamacare, protests

During an appearance on the Feb. 21 episode of “The Ralph Bailey Show,” Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) said Congress is poised to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, but is waiting on the Congressional Budget Office to return a report about the financial impact on the Republican-led plan.

“We are ready to move on this once the Congressional Budget Office gives it their score,” said McCarthy, who was in Bakersfield for the annual Lincoln Dinner on Monday night, which was being held at the Double Tree Hotel.

McCarthy said Republicans have a plan ready to go but didn’t provide further details about what that plan was going to look like.

“(CBO) are taking longer than expected,” said McCarthy, who added that he and Speaker of the House Paul Ryan asked if the CBO needed additional resources to complete the work.

Before the annual Lincoln Dinner, McCarthy’s presence, along with that of Rep. Devin Nunes (R-Tulare), was expected to draw numerous protesters, and McCarthy said he was interested in constructive conversations with people rather than shouting matches, which have erupted at Congressional town hall meetings around the country.

“I’m probably one of the most accessible members in Congress,” McCarthy told host Ralph Bailey. “What they want to do is film me and they want to yell at me.”
