Boston Herald: Thousands rally at Faneuil Hall for Obamacare

Thousands converged on Faneuil Hall for a rally led by the state’s top Democrats vowing to stop the abolition of Obamacare.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren, leading the anti-Republican charge, boomed across the crowded cobblestones that after President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law in 2010, GOP leaders “whined” and “called names.”

“But there’s one thing they never did, and that is lift a single finger to make health care better,” Warren said, echoing a common complaint among yesterday’s speakers that Republicans haven’t produced an alternative plan.

“And now they want to repeal and run,” Warren said to cheers. “That’s right, repeal and run. I think repeal-and-run is for cowards. … If Republicans try and rip health care out of the hands of millions of Americans, we will fight them every step of the way.”
