Burlington Rally Opposes Repeal of Health Care Law

The auditorium at Burlington High School overflowed with people who turned out Sunday to rally against efforts by Republicans in the U.S. Congress to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law —  actions they said would harm access to health care in the U.S. and put residents' lives at risk.

Speakers at the rally said the negative effects would include depriving millions of Americans of health care (including thousands of Vermonters), privatizing Medicaid, making cuts to Medicare and defunding Planned Parenthood. More than 1,000 people attended the event organized by Rights & Democracy Vermont, the Vermont Workers' Center, Vermont Health Care For All, Our Revolution, Black Lives Matter, and other groups.
