Group Protests ACA Repeal at Kansas, Missouri Senate Offices in Kansas City

Dozens of Kansas City area residents paid visits today (THUR) to the local offices of the U.S. senators from Kansas and Missouri to protest the planned repeal of the Affordable Care Act.  Small groups, mobilized by the grassroots organization Indivisible KC, paid morning visits to the Senate offices of Pat Roberts and Jerry Moran of Kansas… and to those of Missouri’s Claire McCaskill and Roy Blunt.  They delivered scrapbooks with pictures and stories about KC area residents helped by the ACA.  One of the stories was about Emily Smith and her husband. The Olathe couple found themselves uninsured in 2011 after he retired from his job as a high school orchestra teacher.


Emily Smith was among 18 Indivisible KC members who showed up at the Overland Park office of Senator Pat Roberts.  She says A-C-A rules that prohibit insurance companies from denying coverage based on pre-existing conditions saved the life of her husband, who suffers from heart problems.
