Pence said President-elect Donald Trump will begin implementing policies to promote campaign promises on his first day in office, but cautioned that Obamacare's full repeal will not be immediate.

As the new Republican-controlled Congress moves forward with its goal of repealing the Affordable Care Act, the biggest question now is what will replace it.

Yet, Dr. Madara added, President Obama's signature legislative achievement "is imperfect and there are a number of issues that need to be addressed".

Donald Trump will be sworn-in as United States president on 20 January.

President Barack Obama arrived at Capitol Hill Wednesday where he'll meet with Democrats to make his push for the Affordable Care Act also known as 'Obamacare'. The poll suggests the likely "repeal and delay" agenda, in which a replacement plan is crafted months after a vote to repeal parts of the law, isn't supported by most voters.

He cautioned Republicans to not to be seen as taking responsibility for the law, which he said "will fall of its own weight - be careful!"

Or do you believe health care should be available - affordably - to all Americans?

Democrats accused the president-elect and Republicans, who control Congress, of wanting to "make America sick again, having no replacement plan, and threatening to throw the country's $3 trillion-a-year healthcare system into chaos".

Republican lawmakers have dubbed the budget resolution the Obamacare "repeal resolution" to emphasize its objective of repealing the law.

Afterwards, they stepped up their rhetorical attack on the initiative.

Have the Republicans come up with an alternative?

As has reported, Schumer and other Democrats are hammering Republicans for moving to repeal Obamacare without a replacement plan ready to go.

The initiative helped people obtain insurance by expanding eligibility to the Medicaid healthcare program for the poor. The exchanges are aimed at individuals and families who don't get coverage through their employers.

A new study by a bipartisan budget think tank says full repeal could cost the USA government as much $350 billion over the next 10 years if nothing replaces it.

On Thursday, Schumer ramped up his attacks on the Republican's plan to revoke Obamacare, calling for a congressional investigation into Trump's pick to lead the US Department of Health and Human Services.
