Healthcare protesters visit Burr's office
Sen. Richard Burr is among the Republican lawmakers who've sworn to repeal
the Affordable Healthcare Act (ACA). Currently 20 million Americans pur
chase their health insurance through the ACA, usually with the help of tax sub
sidies that greatly lower their premiums. The law also ended the practice of
denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions. Republicans are expected to
start repeal efforts in January, which President-elect Donald Trump has
pledged to sign into law, with plans to replace it later. The protest was one of
many mobilized around the country by MoveOn.org.
