SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — People opposed to the Senate Republicans' health care plan gathered in downtown Salt Lake City to rally.

KUTV-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2w0IMqw ) about 100 people gathered Tuesday evening in opposition.

The crowd was angry at Utah Sen. Orrin Hatch and Sen. Mike Lee, both of whom voted to debate the Senate GOP proposal that would repeal the Affordable Care Act and replace it with something else.

Psarah Johnson, one of the rally's organizer, says she is one of the people born with a "debilitating, degenerative disability" that is in jeopardy of losing affordable health care.

She says she knows the Affordable Care Act has problems, but is worried for what could come next.
