'It is going to kill people:' Alabama Indivisible protests Trumpcare with 'die-in'
Passage of the American Health Care Act would be disastrous for the residents of Alabama, according to the progressive grassroots group Alabama Indivisible.
The group held a "die-in" at Railroad Park in downtown Birmingham on Saturday. While some laid in the grass with cardboard tombstones, others passed out flyers to educate passersby on the bill, and to ask them to call their representatives in Congress.
"It is going to kill people," Shea Rives of Alabama Indivisible said, of the new bill.
He said 450 Alabamians will die if they lose their healthcare as a result of Trumpcare.
