Indivisible Greene County holds "our lives on the line" rally
GREENE COUNTY, Tenn. - A rally in support of the Affordable Care Act was held today in front of the Greene County Courthouse. Indivisible Greene County hosted the "Our Lives on the Line" rally. The group hopes to raise awareness around the possible outcomes if Obamacare is repealed. They say millions of Tennesseeans could love their benefits; that's thousands in Greene County.
"The Obamacare replacement that the senate voted on this week would have taken funding away from Tenn Care and would have stripped insurance coverage from as many as 50,000 voters just here in our first congressional district," says chairman of the Greene County Democratic Party, Casey Nicholson.
This rally is a part of the "Day of Action" which also includes a national event in Washington D.C. and nearly 125 rallies across the country.
