"real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing obamacare." now that donald trump is president-elect, the repeal of "obamacare" now seems like a viable option. president obama's affordable care act has struggled to find widespread public acceptance. but as manu raju reports, getting rid of the entire law would be a challenge.

and better. and we're gonna do a real job for the public." getting rid of obamacare has been a gop rallying cry since the law was enacted more than six years ago. (donald trump, (r) president- elect/file): "real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing obamacare." but they've failed repeatedly to overcome democratic resistance over repealing the law. with trump now headed to the oval office a controlling both chambers of congress, the law appears to be on life support. (rep. paul ryan, (r) house speaker): "when donald trump said he wants a special session to repeal and replace obamacare, let me tell you something as the speaker of the house, not only yes, but heck yes. we're ready, we're willing, and we have a plan to do that too." republicans are likely to hold 52 senate seats in the new congress. because of senate rules, the gop only needs 51 votes to

doesn't take health care away or insurance away from 20 million people." but gop leaders say that voters expect them to do away with obamacare. (sen. mitch mcconnell, (r) majority leader): "let's just stipulate that every single republican thought obamacare was a mistake without exception. that's still our view, and you can expect us with a new president who has the same view to address that issue.">> any changes to obamacare are not expected to happen until spring at the earliest. republicans say it could take two additional years to replace the law with something else. in today's health news... new research shows that sugary drinks not only can increase your waistline, but can increase your risk of developing pre- diabetes which could turn into type 2 diabetes researchers at tufts university found that adults who drink sugary beverages regularly have a 46-percent higher risk of developing pre-diabetes compared to those who rarely consume them. the good news is, if prediabetes is
