Protesters gather outside office of Rep. McMorris Rodgers

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) -- Scores of protesters gathered outside the offices of Republican U.S. Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers to demand that the Affordable Care Act be saved.
People at Monday's protest in downtown Spokane also said they were upset by the actions of President Donald Trump.

Several union leaders spoke at the rally, to caution against repealing the health care law without a replacement.
Protesters also chanted for McMorris Rodgers, a member of House leadership, to hold a town hall meeting in the district.
McMorris Rodgers has said President Barack Obama's health care law has caused costs to rise for most Americans. But she agrees with its provisions of covering pre-existing conditions and allowing children to remain on their parents' plans.
