As the political drama over health care legislation in Washington fades, the rest of the country faces a more immediate concern: Getting insurance for next year. The Republican health plan designed to replace the Obama-era health law known as the Affordable Care Act would not have taken full effect for a few years anyway — and now it's dead. "We're going to be living with Obamacare for the foreseeable future," House Speaker Paul Ryan said Friday. That means millions of Americans will have to navigate a current federal health care system that, while not "imploding" as President Donald J. Trump has said, is at least in flux.
Thousands gathered Saturday in cities and towns across the U.S. for planned events in support of President Donald Trump. Most of the events also drew smaller crowds of anti-Trump demonstrators, which resulted in some arrests and altercations. An event in Orange County in Southern California drew around 2,000 people and resulted in 6 arrests, police said, and 3 more were arrested at a rally near Donald Trump's star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In Philadelphia, police stopped marchers short of their intended destination to avoid potential clashes with anti-Trump demonstrators. Events in Boston and on the Jersey Shore also drew crowds in support of, and against, the president.
