Organization for Action hosted a press conference with local organizations to speak on the impact repealing and replacing Obamacare would have on Southern Arizona.

It included leaders from Planned Parenthood, the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans, Mi Familia Vota, LUCHA, Pima Area Labor and other grassroots supporters.

It was a part of nationwide effort to speak out after the Congressional Budget Office released their analysis of the Senate health care bill.

Organizers said seniors, veterans, and kids in Arizona are the most vulnerable if Obamacare is repealed.

A spokesperson with the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans said the Senate health care bill will hurt thousands of seniors on Medicaid.
