US Capitol Police removed about two dozen protesters from the US Senate hearing on the Graham-Cassidy healthcare bill on Monday, September 25. Dozens more stood outside the meeting room, filling the office building hallway.
Social media video showed people being arrested by police, but it’s unclear how many people were arrested.
Monday’s Senate Finance Committee hearing on the bill, which would repeal large portions of Obamacare, was the only one scheduled. Three Republicans have already said they would vote against the bill.
