WATCH LIVE: Senate Dems hold ‘People’s Filibuster’ against ObamaCare repeal

Senate Democrats on Tuesday held a “People’s Filibuster” against the GOP’s ObamaCare repeal push, livestreaming the event on Facebook.

Democrats are stepping up their efforts to stop the GOP in the wake of Republican leadership’s announcement earlier Tuesday that the Senate will delay voting on the healthcare bill.

{mosads}Sens. Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) spoke out against the GOP bill.

Representatives from Planned Parenthood, the Center for American Progress, the American Federation of Teachers and Women’s March were among those at the rally, which began at 2 p.m. Eastern.
