President Barack Obama encouraged Americans to sign up for Obamacare health insurance plans Friday despite Republicans' stated intentions to repeal, or at least improve, the law during Donald Trump's administration.

According to The Hill, Obama spoke on a Facebook Live video and urged people to sign up by Dec. 15, which would guarantee them coverage starting Jan. 1.

"Don't let Republicans in Congress take us back to the days when you could be denied insurance for having a pre-existing condition," Obama said.

He added that the Affordable Care Act is still federal law despite some politicians' arguments that "might make it sound like your insurance is somehow at risk."

Republican lawmakers are vowing to make changes to the law, if not get rid of it altogether, now that the GOP controls the White House and both chambers of Congress.

And, according to a report this week, they are working with insurance companies to make the transition between the existing law and the one that may replace it smooth at the consumer level.

Republican leaders admitted that replacing the law could take years because of its complexity.
