Affordable health care was at the center of debate on Monday night in Gaston County.
People attended a town hall meeting in Dallas organized by a local congressman who has repeatedly voted to repeal Obamacare.
Republican Rep. Patrick McHenry had a town hall meeting in Dallas on Monday night.
He took questions on a variety of issues, including the controversial Affordable Healthcare Act, which would provide healthcare to those who can't afford it across the U.S.
McHenry has voted to repeal it 40 times.
While some agreed with him on Monday night, Eyewitness News spoke with Karen Turner who is in favor of Obamacare. She said her husband has a pre-existing condition and they can't afford health insurance.
"If we had health care, my husband's condition would be treatable," said Turner.
"It's bad for the American people. It's bad for the taxpayer. It's good for those who don't want to pay their own way," said David Jackson.
McHenry’s office said Monday night that states are set to begin open enrollment for the Affordable Healthcare Act on October 1.
