LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – A group gathered outside Central Baptist Hospital in Lexington Friday to protest the U.S. House Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare.
The group says it fears the repeal would cost millions of people their health insurance. They also pointed out to ABC 36 News, that they are not “regular” protesters.
“Most of us have never done anything like this before, but we feel that this particular political atmosphere that we’re in demands that we step up and do something about it,” said protester, Jane Eller.
The protest was organized by ‘Indivisible Bluegrass,’ which is a political action group working to fight divisiveness, unfairness and corruption in government.
