SPRINGFIELD - Thursday marked the seventh anniversary of the Affordable Care Act. In Springfield, a group gathered to speak out in favor of the current program. Logan County Democrat Rebecca Drake and four others from Logan County were in the group of about 30 in attendance. Drake was selected by her group to speak to a politician on the phone regarding the need to maintain the current program. Drake said that with the changes and cuts proposed by the Trump Administration, 24 million people would be negatively impacted. On Friday, the Trump administration withdrew the proposed bill due to insufficient support. The plan would have revised the program in three stages.
