WASHINGTON - Frustrations about health care spilled over into the halls of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday, as Pennsylvania U.S. Sen. Pat Toomey was targeted by protesters.
Some of those protesters were arrested, chanting, "Kill the bill, don't kill me. Where is Toomey?" on their way out.
The protest came after Republican leaders decided to delay a vote on their proposed health care changes until after the Independence Day recess.
Toomey on Tuesday called the bill a "positive step" toward repairing damage caused by Obamacare and toward making Medicaid more sustainable. He also said there would be changes to the proposal based on feedback from lawmakers and the public.
