FLEMINGTON — More than fifty protestors braved rain and temperatures in the low 30's to protest in front of Congressman Leonard Lance's office.

The fate of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) brought out a crowd that stood in the wind and rain on the edge of Route 31 with cars zipping by throwing water up off the asphalt and blaring horns in support.

"They want to repeal it (ACA,) and they are not replacing it with anything," said Paul Matthews of Lambertville. "Republicans use ACA too," he added.

The New Jersey Citizen Action has coordinated protests outside the offices of Republican Congressmen, Frelinghuysen, Lance, LoBiondo, MacArthur and Smith every Wednesday in February.
