ALBANY - A rally opposing the health care overhaul was held in Albany on Thursday.
The activists say the Senate plan was put together behind closed doors, in secrecy without any input from the public or experts.
The ralliers included health care advocates, activists and elected officials.
They believe 2.7 million New Yorkers face the loss of their health care coverage if the Affordable Care Act is repealed.
The New York State Department of Health says there would be a $3.7 billion budget impact on New York State. It was also estimated that a partial repeal could cost New York over 130,000 jobs in 2019.
