The CBO report is out on the House passed Trumpcare bill and the news is a nightmare for Republicans, as the CBO concluded that the number of uninsured in America would jump to 51 million under The American Health Care Act by 2026.
The CBO reported, “CBO and JCT estimate that, in 2018, 14 million more people would be uninsured under H.R. 1628 than under current law. The increase in the number of uninsured people relative to the number projected under current law would reach 19 million in 2020 and 23 million in 2026. In 2026, an estimated 51 million people under age 65 would be uninsured, compared with 28 million who would lack insurance that year under current law. Under the legislation, a few million of those people would use tax credits to purchase policies that would not cover major medical risks.”
14 million Americans would lose their insurance in 2018 under Trumpcare. That number would jump to 19 million by 2020, and 23 million by 2026. Instead of moving the country towards 100% coverage, Trumpcare will increase the number people without health insurance to 51 million.
Trumpcare and the Republicans who passed it both have got to go.
