Concerned citizens rallied in St. Cloud Wednesday, asking Republicans in Congress *not* to repeal Obamacare. Kathryn Schwartz Eckhardt says her family has good health coverage, but it took a frightening experience with her son’s chronic respiratory condition to realize others may not be so lucky. She says, “My son’s gonna be okay because I can afford to take care of him, but millions of children rely on Medicaid and other sorts of public assistance to make sure they have access to care.”
Republicans are having difficulty garnering enough votes to pass the plan in the Senate, but are asking for more cooperation from Democrats, who they say have refused to come up with their own plan to fix generally-acknowledged problems with Obamacare.
