CBO: 24 Million Fewer People Would Have Health Insurance by 2026

The hotly anticipated Congressional Budget Office report on the Republican replacement for Obamacare found it would increase the number of uninsured by 86 percent.

14 Million People Could Lose Insurance Under GOP Health Care Plan

Fourteen million people would likely lose health insurance by 2018 under the new Republican plan to replace Obamacare, according to a long-awaited Congressional Budget Office report, a dramatic increase that would shake up the American health care system.

Hah! I live in Tennessee! A state so super shitty, that the only insurance covered by Obamacare will be gone! This does not affect me at all!!!

But yeah, no kidding. This is a horrible plan. Right now the thing that should be done is improve Obamacare...like maybe put back in the stuff the Republicans took out that caused the current problems. :)

Put back in the public option that corrupt suck up Joe Lieberman bullied out. That would be a good central move anyway.

Some theorize that Trump is doing this to let Ryan hang himself essentially.

Or maybe he's making the situation so bad the US will "have" to do universal healthcare.

I think the stigma of calling it ObamaCare is what really irks Trump.

It's what has been irking many Republicans since the beginning. GOP voters actually approve of most of the individual facets. And it polls significantly higher among the same people when referred to as the ACA instead. (Dumb Faux Newsers don't even know it is the same thing.)

But heaven forbid a black man win the Presidency. Let alone actually receive credit for anything when it comes to good ole boy GOP officials and Trumpanzees.

the issue is, the only unpopular part is how you pay for it.

And dont think they could go with a tax, due to cosntutional reasons. They almost got struck down by the courts beause of it

I hope they find keeping a gay couple 1500 miles away from marrying or having rights to own a flamethrower to be worth it.

But what else can you expect from people that think Government doctrine and education should be based on stories that include seven headed dragons and talking snakes. You might as well think Godzilla movies should be the framework of government.

Huh? The individual mandate was *upheld* because it was construed as a tax.

Had it been enforceable by jail or fines, and construed solely as an exercise of Congress' power to regulate interstate commerce, Justice Roberts probably wouldn't have joined the opinion upholding it.

You know what your right. Remember it wrong because he didnt call it a tax at first.
