WASHINGTON (NBC News) - Capitol Hill Police were called in to break-up a protest over the Senate GOP's proposed health care bill.

The protest took place outside the office of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky.

The sit-in was organized by The Arc, which advocates for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities. The group says it brought about 60 protesters to Capitol Hill for the protest.

As Capitol Police conferred about what to do, the protesters changed "No cuts to Medicaid! Save our liberty!"

Senate Republicans introduced their health care plan Thursday. Critics immediately grew concerned because it includes deep cuts to Medicaid.

Four GOP senators came out against the bill. It can't pass if more than two vote against it.

In some cases, officers physically removed protesters from the area.

No word if anyone was arrested.
