CLEVELAND URBAN NEWS.COM, YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio-Republican President Donald Trump will speak at a rally in Youngstown, Ohio in Mahoning County on Tuesday, July 25, 2017 just three days after Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a state dinner held Saturday in Columbus by the Republican Party, and activists and Democratic leaders plan to picket the Youngstown event.

 

Organizers say they expect more than 20,000 people who have sought tickets to hear the president speak, his second visit to the swing state of Ohio since becoming president.

 

The senate is expected to vote Tuesday on a GOP heathcare package to appeal and replace Obamacare with confusion over whether the Trumpcare bill is or is not a wholesale repeal.

 

The vote is actually a procedural vote for Republican congressional leaders in the senate to seek to move the bill forward.

 

Billed as the 'Rally in the Valley' the president is slated to speak at 7 pm at the Covelli Centre with doors opening at 4 pm, organizers said.

 

Activists and Democratic leaders will host an anti-Trump demonstration in the city's Central Square some six blocks from where the president will speak.

 

The Mahoning County Democratic Party is led by chairman David Betras.

 

Though U.S senate seats can go either way, the county leans Democratic in presidential elections and the last time voters there voted for a Republican president was in 1972 when Richard Nixon won the White House.

 

Youngstown is located on the Mahoning river and is 60 miles southeast of Cleveland. It has a population of some 64,000 people and is 45 percent Black.

 

A third of Youngstown residents have Obamacare insurance under the Affordable Care Act, former president Barack Obama's signature universal heath care initiative that Trump and GOP senate leaders, namely Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, among others, want repealed and replaced with the GOP version dubbed the American Health Care Act of 2017.

 

A Washington Post poll released last Sunday says Americans prefer Obamacare by a 2-1 margin and as support of the legislation increases Trump's approval rating is decreasing, having dropped from 42 percent in April to 36 percent as he approaches the six months mark since he took office in January.

 

McConnell has said that repealing and not replacing Obamacare is also acceptable to him, a stance taken in recent weeks as the bill remains mired in controversy.

 

To date Republicans lack the votes to either repeal or replace Obamacare.

 

With Democrats in opposition, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi of California, and Reps Fudge, a Warrensville Heights Democrat  and one of two Blacks in congress from Ohio, and Marcy Kaptur, a Toledo Democrat, the House of Representatives passed the American Health Care Act in May but it has stalled in the senate even with a revision.

 

Democrats and some eight to 10 GOP senators, including Rand Paul of Kentucky, Mike Lee of Utah and Jerry Moran of Kansas, would not endorse the bill.

 

Notably, the bill, among a host of mandates, requires an overhaul of medicaid funding and is opposed by Ohio Gov John Kasich, a 2016 unsuccessful candidate for the Republican nomination for president.

 

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer of New York says the GOP heathcare bill, which political pundits say is headed for failure,  will "result in higher costs, less care, and millions of Americans will lose their heath care."

 

Republican leaders say the GOP bill is the best substitute to what they say are the ills of Obamacare. including the annual tax penalty against Americans who are not insured.
