Pro-reform groups to organize against repeal vote

A number of organizations supporting healthcare reform will gather in the Capitol on Wednesday to oppose a House bill that would repeal the law.

Families USA, which is organizing the event in the Capitol Visitor Center, said it will feature groups representing individuals with health problems and disabilities, seniors, children, women, care providers, small business owners, minorities and consumers.

A spokesman for the organization said the event will focus on the popular consumer protections included in the reform law. Members of Congress are not expected to attend.
