Congressional Republicans are looking to repeal ObamaCare through budget reconciliation, a special maneuver that only requires 50 votes to pass in the Senate and prevents Democrats from filibustering. 

The Senate took its first steps Thursday toward repealing ObamaCare by passing a budget resolution that is being used as a vehicle for rolling back the law. The House will vote on the resolution Friday.

Trump said earlier this week that his administration would put forward a plan that repeal and replace the law "simultaneously."

Democrats argue that repealing the bill without a replacement will throw millions off of their health insurance and send the markets into turmoil.
