Bay Area Helps Obama Win Huge Victory

The entire Bay Area Congressional delegation voted for health-care reform last night, giving President Obama a huge legislative victory. Pleasanton Democrat Jerry McNerney, who represents the only Bay Area district in which Republicans hold a majority, decided to vote for the historic reform package on Saturday, after wavering as an undecided vote for weeks. “Now is the time to deliver reform for thousands of families who face financial crisis to afford medical care and for the small business owners who are struggling to keep their doors open,” McNerney said in a statement, according to the Associated Press.
