Well, another agency bites the dust. Throw out those numbers and start over until King Tut Trump is happy with the prediction.
And yet he loved some other CBO numbers that said things were better in Jan/Feb. Hmmm.

on the bright side the god fearing citizenry can no longer blame bad emergency care on illegals crowding the ER.
Serious question. Does this mean that illegals could get Obamacare?

Obamacare Has Barely Made a Dent in ER Visits

Kimberly Leonard • Feb. 18, 2016, at 6:05 p.m.
A government report published Thursday shows Obamacare is still far from achieving one of its goals.

President Barack Obama's health care reform law, the Affordable Care Act, has brought the number of people lacking health insurance to a historic low. Yet it also aimed to reduce visits to emergency departments, where the uninsured would often go to receive care but which are often strained with high volumes of patients and deliver more costly services. In giving millions more people access to health insurance coverage, the creators of Obamacare theorized that patients would seek medical help earlier with their doctors as symptoms develop, rather than rush to the emergency room during a time of crisis.

But findings from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggest that not having health care coverage isn't the only factor keeping people from defaulting to the ER for care, and that "ER use overall has not changed significantly after the first full year of ACA implementation."

The report from the CDC's National Center for Health Statistics used data from the 2013 and 2014 National Health Interview Survey to assess why and how often people went to the emergency room. Data from 2014 – the year that coverage provisions in Obamacare went into effect – showed the percentage of adults visiting the ER didn't differ much from the year before, despite the fact that 7.9 million gained coverage between the two years.

You sure it's not 1017?
If there had been as dramatic a rise in ER visits in the last 3 months it would definitely have been reported.
I win.
