Rep. David Valadao's constituents will rally in front of his district office today to protest the current House Republican health care bill, the American Health Care Act.
President Donald Trump was scheduled to meet with members of the conservative House Freedom Caucus in an 11th-hour effort to secute enough votes to pass the legislation to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act - a key campaign promise.
Other issues the organizations have with the Republican health care proposals include making sure that people with pre-existing conditions are not discriminated against, as well as accessibility to diagnostic testing for those with disabilities.
This new plan, although similar in some ways to the ACA, is still very different - and not in a good way.
The inspiring retelling of history glosses over much of the bitter congressional fighting, interest group accommodations and legislative compromises that were required to make the Affordable Care Act law. However, as of Thursday afternoon, both the future of the bill and the time lawmakers would formally vote on it remained unclear.

Generally Spurs do have a very good record against the Saints since they were promoted, and have only lost one game against them. Spurs have already played top-flight opposition without Kane in the team nine times in the current campaign.
People will share their stories about how the ACA has impacted them and talk about what will happen if the affordable care act is repealed.
"Medicaid and health coverage are the cornerstone of our progress, and some of us simply will not survive its loss", added Dooha. Three-in-ten of those with family incomes of $30,000 or less say they approve of the law, and about half (52%) say the government has a responsibility to ensure health care coverage.
Among local Republican representatives, Faso has promised to vote for the AHCA, while Stefanik remained noncommittal as of Wednesday.
CBO scored the bill as saving more than $300 billion over 10 years with close to a billion to be cut from Medicaid over the long haul, but likely to result in the loss of 24 million covered lives. The changes would allow states to require able-bodied Medicaid recipients without dependents to work, and expand subsidies for older people who buy coverage on the individual market.
All Democrats and three Republicans on the House Budget Committee voted against the bill. "There would be many folks that are going to have to jump through a lot of hoops to get health care".
