A rally is planned for this Sunday to urge lawmakers not to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
The national day of action, spearheaded by Senator Bernie Sanders, includes a demonstration on the Portage Lake Lift Bridge.
Houghton County Democratic Party Co-Chair Bill Binroth says they are trying to stop what they say is an attempt by newly elected officials to destroy the current health care system.
The concern is that President-elect Donald Trump, along with newly elected Congressman Jack Bergman and others, may move to repeal Obamacare and make major changes to Medicare and Medicaid without something to replace it.
Demonstrators are planning to meet at the lower level parking lot in Houghton Sunday at 12:30pm and cross the bridge on the sidewalks at 1:00pm.
