  • LIFE AND DEATH: Report from a demonstration against U.S. Rep. French Hill's vote to repeal Obamacare.

Demonstrators critical of the House GOP health bill paid a call on the Little Rock office of Republican U.S. Rep. French Hill today. He voted for the legislation.

Front and center in the photo is Guyanne Ransom, who told photographer Brian Chilson she has coverage thanks to the Affordable Care Act. She lost much of her lungs to cancer, she said. Medication that helps her breathe costs more than $1,500 a month. If the Affordable Care Act is repealed for people like her, she said she will die.

Building management objected to the presence of the protesters on their property. They demonstators moved to the public sidewalk along University Avenue.

Moveon.org is hitting the whole Arkansas delegation on social media.
