Orange County Register

It’s crunch time on health care reform and Rep. Loretta Sanchez – the Orange County delegation’s only Democrat – was reviewing the final house proposal on Thursday, making sure it saves the money she wants it to and will make a difference for people in her district. “I need to know if we can afford it,” said Sanchez, one of a group of cost-conscious Blue Dog members who have been waiting for the Congressional Budget Office to give lawmakers its estimate on what the bill will cost and what it will save. Sanchez voted yes on the House bill last year.
