MORRIS PARK - Protesters, many of them medical students, rallied at Montefiore Medical Center's Albert Einstein Medical College in Morris Park Monday to demand affordable health care.

They condemned the promises of President Donald Trump and fellow Republicans to repeal former President Barack Obama’s signature health care law, the Affordable Care Act.

The ACA provides insurance to millions of Americans who would otherwise not be able to afford medical coverage.

Tuesday is the last day to purchase ACA health plans for this year.
