Now, with a Republican president on his way to the white house, the fate of Obamacare is up in the air. Like many Republicnas, Roy believes the GOP will get 100% of the blame if the the ACA replacement fails to fix our current problems or leaves people with out care.
Media captionWhat do Americans think of Obamacare today? "It is the exact opposite of the change Republicans promised, and I can not support it, even as a placeholder".
The House is expected to vote on the budget Friday.
The resolution instructs committees of the House and Senate to draft repeal legislation by a target date of January 27.
Hours before the televised event, Republicans took a major step at dismantling Obamacare.
It will not be an easy job to remove Obamacare, however, as some portions of the law which got rid of pre-existing conditions and allowed children to remain covered by their parents' insurance until age 26, are still very popular among Americans. Supporters of the law are planning rallies in more than 40 cities.
Republicans said the Senate vote is the first nail in the coffin for a hated law they have vowed to help Trump unravel. It passed the Senate on December 24, 2009, and the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act was signed into law on March 23, 2010.
It has banned insurers from refusing coverage to people who are already ill, and curbed medical charges to the sick and elderly. Republicans pledged to scrap large parts of the law, however, citing rising health insurance premiums among other things.
But House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi has vowed to fight.
The move follows the Senate, which voted after a marathon overnight session Wednesday-Thursday to approve a budget blueprint to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act.
While their actions this week did not amount to an actual repeal of the ACA - yet - Republicans stand poised to quickly demolish President Obama's landmark legislative achievement as one of their first items of business.
And the law provides for coverage of many routine check-ups.
However, experts say these mandates are needed to keep the insurance marketplace solvent.
Mr Trump's choice for health and human services secretary, Tom Price, will play a key role in shaping the planned overhaul. If Republicans are unable to put in place a substitute, millions of Americans who receive healthcare under Obamacare may be at risk of losing coverage.
Repealing the Affordable Care Act will leave 30 million people without health care coverage, and will cost USA taxpayers $353 billion over the next ten years.
