WBUR: Mass. Politicians, Obamacare Supporters Rally At Faneuil Hall

Ahead of the presidential inauguration of Donald Trump, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and members of the Massachusetts congressional delegation are promising to fight both Congressional Republicans and Trump himself as they attempt to repeal the Affordable Care Act.

On Sunday, Walsh and almost the entire Massachusetts delegation participated in a rally at Faneuil Hall in support of President Obama’s signature health care law as similar rallies throughout the country.

In Boston, legislators took turns speaking to the crowd that filled Faneuil’s cobblestone plaza and had endured the bitter cold for hours.
