California stands to benefit the most from the health care reform proposal winding its way through Congress. Still, some residents remain suspicious of the way legislators have gone about trying to enact reforms.
     
Hundreds of people have picketed Democratic incumbents in swing congressional districts in the Central Valley in recent days, some in an effort to block the legislation, others to pass it.

On Friday, protesters slowed traffic near the office of Democratic Rep. Jerry McNerney in Pleasanton.
     
McNerney is being targeted along with Dennis Cardoza of Atwater. McNerney announced late Saturday he was voting yes on health care.
     
Supporters of the plan say it will help California, which carries the largest public insurance program for the poor and is struggling with a growing number of uninsured.
