Hundreds rally in LA to protest GOP plan to scrap Obamacare

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Hundreds marched through downtown Los Angeles protesting President Donald Trump's plan to dismantle his predecessor's signature health care law.

The demonstration Thursday came as congressional leaders postponed a vote on the American Health Care Act, which the White House hopes will replace Obamacare.

Protesters cheered loudly when the postponement was announced.

Marchers hoisting signs reading "save our health care" said people have come to rely on coverage provided by the President Barack Obama's plan. They said they fear millions of Americans would be left without health coverage.

The rally coincided with similar events across the state and nation.

GOP leaders hope to reschedule a vote Friday.
