Simi Valley: A deadly decision

Demonstrators protest the recent GOP-led repeal of the Affordable Care Act in front of U.S. Rep. Steve Knight’s, R-Santa Clarita, office. Objecting to the apparent unwillingness to answer questions regarding his vote to repeal the ACA, otherwise known as Obamacare, the demonstrators hosted a “dramatic pre-enactment of Denial of Hospitalization” replete with bloody scrubs, hand-drawn tombstones and chants in front of Knight’s office on Los Angeles Avenue in Simi Valley. Knight’s district represents portions of Los Angeles and Ventura counties.
