Bakersfield Congressman and House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy is speaking out on President Obama's revised plan to leave U.S. troops in Afghanistan.

Rep. McCarthy (R-Bakersfield) made a statement on Twitter that while he's pleased with the President's decision, he notes that "now is not the time to talk about troop reductions or to continue to tie the hands of our military personnel."
