CLEVELAND, Ohio --- More than 1,000 rallied at Olivet Institutional Baptist Church in Cleveland on Thursday night to show their support for expanding Medicaid in Ohio.

The assembly brought together members of religious congregations, community groups and major health care providers to demonstrate community support for expanding Medicaid.

The reason was because President Barack ''Obama's Affordable Care Act called for and funded the expansion of the Medicaid program, which provides health insurance to millions of poor Americans.
