Americans are divided over repealing Obamacare

However, Trump has said a replacement plan must be in place in advance of people losing their Obamacare coverage.

There has still been no confirmation from either lawmakers or from the transition team as to whether or not the nomination of Price means that his proposed legislation to repeal Obamacare will be the basis of the effort or whether Trump will come up with a different one and ignore Price's all together.

The announcements prompted both optimism and wariness in the health care arena. In 31 states, about nine million Americans received insurance through Medicaid expansion, the magazine said.

Rep. Tom Price's health proposals "would not just undo the last five or 10 years of progress under the Affordable Care Act, but the last 50 years under Medicaid and Medicare, " said Anthony Wright, executive director of Health Access California. Price is an orthopedic surgeon and a staunch critic of the Affordable Care Act in Congress. Verma is known for recently helping expand Medicaid in IN under a federal waiver that allowed the state to require Medicaid patients to pay a monthly premium or be locked out of coverage for several months.

During the presidential campaign, President-elect Donald Trump said he would work to repeal and replace Obamacare during his first days in office. "We'll see if Trump care measures up", Mr Earnest said. Trump's selection of Price all but ensures that Americans will find out. "It's important to point out that Dr. Price and Ms. Verma will really be our point people who will be leading the charge on this front", Miller said.

Providing financial help to low- and moderate-income Americans who don't get insurance through their jobs to help them purchase coverage (80 percent of the public, including 67 percent of Republicans).

The poll also notes that health care played a limited role in voters' 2016 election decisions, with 8 percent of voters saying health care was the biggest factor in their vote. These are government-run health plans for people with existing medical conditions who can't get affordable health insurance on the private market. He also has worked to try to increase protection of his fellow physicians from malpractice lawsuits.

As for Verma, she redesigned Medicaid in IN, the home state of Vice President-elect Mike Pence, exercising the flexibility the ACA provides states.

The Indiana program requires beneficiaries to make monthly contributions to health savings accounts. His positions against the healthcare program and Planned Parenthood have made him a controversial choice. On Tuesday, he is expected to meet with U.S. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee and later have dinner with Mitt Romney.

But some analysts fear the revenue loss from Trump's tax plan would balloon the deficit, even using "dynamic scoring" by which GOP sponsors can claim that economic growth will offset most of it. His reply was quick."It's going to take a different president".
