JUST IN: Protests erupt after healthcare bill released (pictures & video)

The Senate offices on Capitol Hill are flooded with protesters Thursday, after the long awaited release of the Senate’s version of the AHCA that until this point has largely been crafted in secret.

The Senate bill calls for more gradual cuts to low income Medicaid recipients, but nominally greater cuts in the long run. Overall, the Senate’s version isn’t that different from that of the House, and thus retains all of the House bill’s unpopularity.

Protester’s reactions were captured on Twitter.
