DENHAM, KNIGHT, VALADAO key to TRUMPCARE passage? — BECERRA’s 100 days — NAPOLITANO grilled: “Benghazi” treatment?

With Congress on the brink of a vote to repeal Obamacare, California is pushing back on the GOP’s agenda on both health care and immigration with a proposal by health advocates to extend Medicaid benefits to undocumented young adults up to the age of 26.
The plan builds upon a California law that went into effect last year that expanded comprehensive Medi-Cal coverage to children under the age of 19 regardless of immigration status, making it the fifth state in the country to do so. With this new proposal, California could be the first state to expand coverage to young adults.
