"I went through two years of campaigning and I'm telling you no matter where I went, people were suffering so badly with the ravages of Obamacare," the US President added.

"As far as I am concerned your premiums are going to come down. We are going to get this pass through the Senate, I feel so confident."

"This is a great plan and I actually think it will get better and this is and make no mistake, this is a repeal and a replace of Obamacare, make no mistake about it," he said.

Following the votes, former Secretary of the State, Hillary Clinton tweeted, "A shameful failure of policy & morality by GOP today. Fight back on behalf of the millions of families that will be hurt by their actions."
