    CBO New Score Is Out From Trumpcare

    And it's just as bad as the first one.

    The Republican bill to repeal Obamacare would result in 23 million fewer people having health insurance by the year 2026, according to a long-awaited and nonpartisan forecast, a result that would send shockwaves through the healthcare system.

    According to the forecast released Wednesday by the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, 14 million fewer people would have health insurance next year under the Republican bill, increasing to a total of 19 million in 2020.
    By 2026, a total of 51 million people would be uninsured, roughly 28 million more than under Obamacare. That is roughly equivalent to the loss in coverage under the first version of the bill, which failed to pass the House of Representatives.

    Much of the loss in coverage would be due to the Republican plan to shrink the eligibility for Medicaid; for many others, healthcare on the open marketplace would become unaffordable. Some of the loss would be among those who choose not to get coverage.

    Yeah well it would be nice if we had a money tree but we don't.

    Figure out a way to pay for it, which Obamacare didn't, and we will cover everyone.

    I know - seriously that's really what this stupid bill is all about - make it easier to pass tax reform to the benefit of the top 5%.

    Good thing is that is DOA. But some people won't forgot how Trump tried to screw them over with health care and the budget.

    I heard some guy on tv say that many of those people who would lose health insurance don't want it any way, they're just force to buy it now because Obama made them.

    Actually it is going belly up.

    It's why providers are running from it. Remember the CBO had to revise their estimates 6 times and each one got worse.

    Obamacare has no funding which is why Obama kept pushing the bad parts back.

    It's going broke.

    If this bill doesn't pass most people will be tossed off of it, that's a simple fact.
