Hundreds of people rallied outside the Connecticut State Capitol on Sunday as part of protests organized by Democrats across the country to highlight opposition to the Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
U.S. Senator Chris Murphy, D-Conn., defended the Affordable Care Act in a speech on the Senate floor on Thursday. Murphy also used the speech to accuse his Republican colleagues of being in an irresponsible rush to repeal President Obama’s signature legislation.
The next U.S. Congress convenes tomorrow with Republicans in control of both the House and Senate. The repeal of the Affordable Care Act is top on their agenda, but Senator Chris Murphy, D-Conn., says the Republicans might not find that easy to do.
