LANSING, Mich. (WSYM)-- The Michigan Faith In Action Organization of Lansing met at Trinity A.M.E Church to pray for lawmakers to come together to work on a plan that will work for everyone. 

This comes at a time when lawmakers are on summer recess,
but the group hopes with them joining a national campaign,it will set the tone for GOP to change their minds about getting rid of the Affordable Health Care Act when they're back in session.

The national campaign is called "Our Lives on the Line". The Michigan Faith In Action Organization said they hope this will be a wake up call for Michigan lawmakers to listen to the people they represent.

"They need to have debate. They need to hear their citizens and their concerns, and we're going to get to a point in the near future where all the parties, the Democrats and Republicans, come together and repair the Affordable Care Act," Reverend Gerald Cardwell said.

 

Many of the repeal bills under consideration would end medicaid expansion in Michigan, and that's the last thing they want to happen.
