BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Idaho’s Republican U.S. Rep. Mike Simpson faced roughly 100 protesters while speaking at a health care conference in Boise.

Demonstrators held signs and chanted “This is what Democracy looks like” Monday outside while Simpson spoke to health care officials, insurance providers and educators inside during the Idaho Health Care Summit.

Simpson voted in favor of the recent House bill that seeks to repeal and replace Democratic former President Barack Obama’s health care law. In a statement explaining his vote, Simpson said the bill is a good first step to replacing the Affordable Care Act, while also acknowledging the bill in its current form is not perfect and expects it to be amended in the Senate.
