Healthcare Advocates Warn About Impacts Of Obamacare Repeal

As Congress continues the process to repeal the Affordable Health Care Act, advocates are warning about the consequences.   

Local healthcare advocates are sounding the alarm about the impacts of repealing Obamacare without a backup plan.  Rebecca Wakefield with the Florida healthcare union SEIU Local 1991, says an estimated 2 million Floridians currently enrolled will be affected.  She says three congressional districts in South Florida have the highest rate of enrollees.

The union is holding a conference today at Jackson Memorial Hospital on the local impacts of the Obamacare repeal.  Wakefield says nurses, doctors patients, and consumers will join other advocates sharing personal stories and statistics on the impacts in Miami and Florida. 

Nationwide, protesters have taken to the streets in an effort to stop Congress from removing the health care law that covers up to 30 million Americans.
