Activists protest against the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare during a rally in Freedom Plaza in Washingt

Activists protest against the Republican plan to repeal Obamacare during a rally in Freedom Plaza in Washingt

The protest comes on the same day that the U.S. House of Representatives is expected to vote on the new health care plan, called the "American Health Care Act".

On Thursday - March 23 - we will mark seven years since President Barack Obama signed into law the Affordable Care Act, extending quality, affordable health coverage to more than 20 million previously uninsured Americans. Overall, the AHCA would create the largest benefits for the wealthiest Americans while causing millions of other Americans, especially those living on low incomes or in rural areas, to lose the health care coverage that they had gained under the ACA.

However, if the new GOP health care plan is adopted, it would be a step backwards, not a step toward improving health care in America.

The Congressional Budget Office finds that a 64-year-old making $26,000 per year would pay about $13,000 more per year for health insurance.

Republicans largely disapprove of the law across levels of educational attainment, but views of the government's role in ensuring health care coverage vary widely by education. However, the AHCA does not include the mandate to purchase health care.

Much could change, however, in the coming days and weeks as Senate Republicans take their turn debating the plan. "You know I don't think there's anyone here who thinks that the Affordable Care Act is flawless". If you're like the majority of Americans, you might be wondering how to protest the AHCA before the House votes on the bill on Thursday. The Republican bill ends the premium subsidies that countless families depend on to access affordable coverage.

Molina said his main concern with the legislation is changes to Medicaid, which would go from open-ended payments to block grants to the states in 2020.

"If this bill passes 24 million Americans will lose their health insurance".

New York's advocates for people with disabilities say proposed cuts to Medicaid would force many of them into institutional care.

After an hour and half ride on Air Force One with President Trump Monday, Comer says he believes Trump is "committed to helping people in poor districts, like my district, with high Medicaid population, get covered".
