Rally held against repealing Affordable Care Act
Dozens rallied in Downtown Brooklyn Saturday out of concern that Congress will repeal the Affordable Care Act.
Holding tombstone signs, protesters simulated how many people could be affected if the repeal goes through and Congress approves the new American Health Care Act.
News 12 spoke with Gabriel Cohen who credits the legislation with saving his life.
"Because of the Affordable Care Act, I was finally able to get insurance and then a few months after that I found out that I had stage 3 non Hodgkin Lymphoma," Cohen says.
Many local leaders say they're committed to fighting on Capitol Hill to make sure the repeal doesn't go through.
The house is expected to vote on the bill in two weeks.
