Hate does not make America great : Hundreds of protesters rally outside ...



Protesters lined up as U.S. Vice President Mike Pence visited Kentucky on March 11 to sell the Republican healthcare bill with a vow to "repeal and replace Obamacare once and for all." Supporters and detractors of President Donald Trump were on hand with one person holding a sign saying, "Hate does not make America great." Pence visited an energy services company in Louisville to tout the plan backed by Trump to gut the Affordable Care Act, calling the Obama-era law a "nightmare."

The Republican plan, the American Health Care Act, to overhaul the U.S. healthcare system cleared its first hurdles in Congress on Thursday, but its chances for passage look uncertain with top Republicans scrambling to bring disgruntled conservatives aboard.

In the face of opposition by Democrats, healthcare providers and many conservatives, two House of Representatives committees approved the legislation that would undo much of the 2010 Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, moving it closer to a vote before the full House.
