Progressive leaders urged lawmakers to embrace Obamacare and expand Medicaid during an enough is enough rally at the Statehouse. A coffin was brought up to the statehouse steps representing people that will die this year because they do not have health insurance.

— "Truthful Tuesday" protesters will be back at the State House on Tuesday.

The group, inspired by the "Moral Monday" protests in North Carolina, had a rally on the first day of the 2014 legislative session that drew several hundred people to rally about health care, voting rights and education.

Tuesday, several people who say they have benefited from the federal Affordable Care Act will speak at a news conference outside of Republican Gov. Nikki Haley's office at 12:30 p.m.
