A "Queer Rager" dance party to protest the proposed repeal of the Affordable Care Act is planned for Wednesday night outside the Loews hotel at 12th and Market Streets, where the GOP congressional retreat is meeting Wednesday through Friday. (A similar dance party was held outside the house Vice President Pence rented in Chevy Chase, Md., the night before he was inaugurated.)
Most of the protests center around the proposed ACA repeal, a hallmark of Trump's campaign and one of the longest-held goals of Republicans in Congress. The GOP has already taken steps toward repealing the law, and one of Trump's first executive orders in office was aimed at "easing the burden" of the ACA. But exactly what might replace the act is the subject of much debate.
