“A group of about 50 protesters picketed in front of U.S. Rep. Larry Bucshon’s Terre Haute district office Thursday morning to denounce his recent introduction of legislation they say could harm drug discounts and limit safety net providers.

The protesters, many from Austin, Indiana, are part of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation, a Los Angeles-based global nonprofit provider of HIV prevention services, testing and health care for HIV patients.
