Thousands rally for Obamacare

"For us as a family, whether we would have taking on the burden of the cost and gone into a tremendous debt, I don't know", said Portland resident Linda Bond.

"The Affordable Care Act is working", said Lt. Gov. Ralph Northam.

Tyler Murphy, the organizer of the rally, said their concerns go beyond the law.

Buffalo's VA center on Bailey Avenue served as a backdrop to symbolize how healthcare helps people, as around 100 of all different ages and backgrounds gathered to talk about some of the things they stand to lose if the ACA is repealed.

Trump said his plan for replacing most aspects of Obama's health-care law is all but finished.

Greg Larson with the Buckeye Institute says repealing the Affordable Care Act is necessary, but as Republican lawmakers have suggested, it must be replaced with something else.

"It doesn't matter if you're Christian, if you're Jewish if you're Muslim, if you're Seikh, if you're non-theist, if you're with the LGBT community, cancer doesn't discriminate", said Carson.

'There was a philosophy in some circles that if you can't pay for it, you don't get it.

While those in the health plan enrollment industry hope people will continue to keep their plans, their plans could look different next year. Supporters argue it has been nothing less than a life-saver, allowing people with pre-existing conditions to get the vital care they need and extending coverage to those who could otherwise not afford coverage. That's one change Fackler says he could see happening. Now, ahead of a Trump presidency, Warren wants to make sure these services remain in effect.

However, come next year, re-enrollment could potentially be an issue, because the federal government could no longer require everyone to have health insurance.

Since the new congress was sworn in, steps have been taken to repeal Obamacare. "We are gonna roll up our sleeves and fight with everything we got".

Trump declined to reveal the pertinent details of the new healthcare plan, but told The Post in the interview published Sunday night that drug companies will be forced to negotiate on Medicare and Medicaid prices. "But it is up to us to resist this backward march", said Zach Adamson, the vice president of the Indianapolis City-County Council.
