On March 19 in Portland, Congresswoman Chellie Pingree held a Health Care Town Hall that drew hundreds of Mainers who spoke up about their fears about Trumpcare, the Republican plan to replace the Affordable Care Act and, by the Congressional Budget Office's estimate, take health care away from 24 million Americans.
