Following months of closed-door meetings, Senate Republicans unveiled their new health care bill on Thursday morning that, if passed into law, would replace former President Barack Obama's signature health care law -- the Affordable Care Act.
The 142-page bill is expected to curb Obamacare's expansion of Medicaid for low-income Americans.
The crowd gathered outside McConnell's office was reportedly chanting, "No cuts to Medicaid save our library," according to ABC News reporter Mariam Khan.
