“Pull the plug” on the American Healthcare Act.

That was the message as health care providers, disability advocates and community activists gathered at the Resource Center for Independent Living in Utica.

They’re urging Congresswoman Claudia Tenney to oppose the ACHA.and advocate for a plan that would not hurt thousands of New Yorkers.

Donna Gillette of RCIL says one of their main concerns is the proposal to fund Medicaid through block grants.  Gillette says block grants would not keep pace with the needs of New Yorkers with disabilities.

Assemblyman Anthony Brindisi was on hand to show his support.

He says 24 million Americans would lose healthcare coverage if the plan goes through, including 2.7 million New Yorkers.

Brindisi says the repeal of Obamacare would cost New York state over $4 billion a year, including $4.1 million in Oneida County
