Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) To Speak at 2016 Congressional Briefing
Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) will address hundreds of long term and post-acute care advocates at the 2016 American Health Care Association/National Center for Assisted Living Congressional Briefing on May 24.

The Capitol Hill address from the Majority Leader will coincide with AHCA/NCAL advocates meeting with their Members of Congress on important issues affecting Medicare and Medicaid reimbursement.

McCarthy last spoke at the AHCA/NCAL Congressional Briefing in 2013 as then-Majority Whip. McCarthy has since risen in the ranks to the number-two spot among House Republicans in what is one of the quickest ascensions to the position in the modern Congress.

Surprising circumstances led McCarthy to his current role. Former Majority Leader Eric Cantor lost a primary race during the 2014 election cycle and resigned his leadership position immediately. McCarthy then filled the empty leadership position.

McCarthy, 50, was originally elected in 2006 and appointed to the role of chief deputy whip for the party after just one term. When the Republicans regained control of the House in 2011, McCarthy was elected Majority Whip after then-Whip Eric Cantor ascended to Majority Leader.

McCarthy was born and raised in Bakersfield, California, a city that remains a part of his current district. He is known for being one of the most media-savvy Members of Congress and boasts a highly active Instagram account.
