The group said the only acceptable repeal and replace would be a replacement of the Affordable Care Act with a universal single payer plan. The new data marks an uptick in popularity for the law over the course of just two months.

GOP Gov. John Kasich of OH said, however, completely getting rid of the ACA is unacceptable "when you have 20 million people, or 700,000 people in my state, because where do the mentally ill go, where do the drug addicts go?"

"I'm here to support healthcare for all, it is a basic human right everyone should have", said Mozeika.

Republicans in Congress are planning to dismantle the Affordable Care Actm saying they will replace it with something else.

Obamacare subsidies are replaced with a tax credit that is based on age. Of the 33 Republican governors, 17 represent states that rejected Medicaid expansion and 16 represent states that accepted it, a near even divide.

Health insurance executives within the United States are expected to meet with Donald Trump on Monday according to a report out of Bloomberg.

These are the findings of a new Pew Research Center poll released this week showing that public support for the 2010 health care law that has provided coverage to more than 20 million Americans is at its highest level on record.

It runs below Trump's more dramatic line in the sand, and it is there ostensibly to smooth Trump's rhetoric with a dose of U.S. Despite John Kelly's comments about not using the army for deportation, Donald Trump stated otherwise.

Yvonne Dallam, a freelance contractor from Jersey City, cried as she spoke about how ACA provided her with insurance coverage during pregnancy. Americans are watching closely to see how much the Republican-controlled Congress will change the current system.

"The deeply harmful path House Republicans have laid out would spell disaster for families nationwide". To urge calm, some Republicans have already made promises that patients won't lose coverage during a transition period away from Obamacare, while Trump himself has promised "insurance for everybody".

Boehner said he warned GOP leaders about repealing Obamacare without a replacement ready because the members "will never ever agree what the bill should be".

84% of people who took part in the poll felt it was important to do so.

And while most Republicans disapprove of the law (89% to 10%), they are also divided over what to do about it - 42% favor modifications while 44% favor axing it. "But I can tell you there is a very strong consensus in the House that Obamacare is collapsing on the American people", he said, adding that deliberations on fixing health care issues are "moving very rapidly".

One attendee grew up with universal healthcare in England.
