     Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey said he is optimistic about prospects for a bipartisan effort on shoring up the Affordable Care Act now that Republican repeal efforts have failed.

      The Democrat hoisted a town hall-style event in Springfield Monday night.  

    Before taking the stage at the Forest Park Middle School, Markey spoke with WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill.
