A week in the Valley


I was back in the Valley this week, where I enjoyed having a townhall meeting with around a hundred Cigna employees who discussed ObamaCare, jobs, water, and other issues with me. Hundreds of Cigna jobs in Visalia had been jeopardized by ObamaCare regulations that put U.S. insurers at a disadvantage with foreign-based companies in issuing health plans for Americans living overseas. However, a bipartisan group of House members passed a law I co-authored to cancel those regulations, and the cancellation was enacted into law in December. You can read about the townhall meeting here and here.  
I also had some good exchanges this week with local media and radio callers, who questioned me on ISIS, Hillary Clinton’s private emails, Netanyahu’s speech to Congress, and other topics. Here are some quick links to my interviews:  
·         ABC 30

·         CBS 47

·         KMJ’s Ray Appleton

·         Powertalk’s Christopher Gabriel
·         Connect with Me’s John Malos
