MILWAUKEE -- Rallies were held across the country Sunday, January 15th to support the Affordable Care Act, including here in Wisconsin.

Democrats staged the rallies to resist Republican efforts to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law.

President-elect Donald Trump has vowed to overturn and replace the ACA.

Last week, Republicans in Congress began the process of repealing it, using a budget maneuver that requires a bare majority in the Senate.

"Whether it's behind closed doors or in public, my Republican colleagues are beginning to express their concerns that if they do indeed repeal it, we will see chaos," Senator Tammy Baldwin said.

The Affordable Care Act has delivered health coverage to about 20 million people.

It has also been saddled with problems, such as rapidly rising premiums and large co-payments.

    ‘See Chaos’!?!?!? The Chaos is what everyday working Americans are facing and based their vote on it. My premiums haven’t went down but my out of pocket has skyrocketed!!! What middle class family can afford no wage increase, plus $2-3K+ out of pocket each year anytime your kid gets sick!?!? The problem is what Obamacare did to the rest of the private health insurance plans!!!

    Unaffordable Healthcare!!’ $500 a month & $10000 deductible if you are a working person if you don’t work free. Get a job so I am not paying your premiums

    Just a bunch of misled and uneducated fools following the wrong people.

  • Clayton Bigsby
