Residents attend rally to save health care

Congressman John Delaney appears as key note speaker

Gaithersburg, Md. - More than 200 people were on hand at Gaithersburg High School Monday night to make their voices heard at a rally to save health care.

Dozens of residents got to work drawing up signs to show their displeasure with President Trump’s effort to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

Many of the rally’s participants said they were worried that a change in healthcare plans would strip coverage away from millions of Americans.

The rally’s key note speaker was Congressman John Delaney, who voiced his opinion that the President’s plans, including his newly revealed budget proposition, would actually be voted down on Capital Hill before they could be made into law.

"I think it is fiscally illiterate in many ways,” said Congressman Delaney. “It is a terrible thing for the Washington region in particular. It would have a devastating effect.”

Other speakers at the rally included Montgomery County President Roger Berliner and councilmember Craig Rice.
