1. He wants to change health care, but keep at least one Obamacare provision

“I am committed to voting no,” Hultgren said, about the prospect of a health care bill being presented that would allow insurance companies to deny coverage because of pre-existing conditions. “I have been very upfront about this. ... The current system we’ve got is not working like we thought it could.”

Hultgren does not support a single-payer system and was met with boos when suggesting reform could be done through a marketplace with options. (Photo by: Sandy Bressner - sbressner@shawmedia.com)
