CBO: $600 Billion In Tax Cuts For The Rich 52 Million More Uninsured
In 10 years’ time the total uninsured population—those who would still be uninsured under Obamacare plus the ones Trumpcare forces out—would be 52 million. Remember back before the Affordable Care Act? Remember that there were 46 million uninsured people in the U.S.?Trumpcare makes it worse!
And as most analysts have concluded, the costs would be considerably higher for older Americans.
CBO: Trumpcare will result in more uninsured people than there were before Obamacare became law
Or as Paul Ryan calls it, an act of mercy.
More from Politico:
The bill is paid for with a staggering $880 billion cut to Medicaid over a decade, a figure that is likely to terrify governors who rely on the existing federal share of the program for their budgets.

The CBO numbers are what we have.
They will almost certainly not be the exact numbers that result 10 years from now.
But, what they do show is 14 million people losing health insurance in the first year of the GOP plan, maybe it would only be 12 million, maybe it will be 18 million, it will probably be a lot.
And the amount that the tax cuts will enrich the wealthy, maybe they will only net 300 billion, maybe they'll get a Trillion.
What we know is that this bill will take away health care from millions of Americans, and use the money for tax cuts for the wealthy.
I don't think it will happen, I think Trump will send this abortion back to Lyin' Ryan, and tell him to come up with the plan that costs less and covers everyone, you know, the plan he's been talking about since 2010....

Anyway, she also told the forum that the CBE is often hamstrung by having to utilize some base assumptions that often they would not use.
And in things like long range projections, the government will tell them, for example, what GDP change per year they have to input into their models.
In her opinion, their numbers for current data were good, but their projections had this weakness.

Tut Tut Tut......not so fast, Buster. Our president and his mouthpiece (Sean the Spicey One) says au contraire to the CBO. The CBO is another fake agency. They don't know what they are talking about---vicious rumors---blah blah.
"If you're looking at the CBO for accuracy, you're looking in the wrong place."
Well, another agency bites the dust. Throw out those numbers and start over until King Tut Trump is happy with the prediction.

on the bright side the god fearing citizenry can no longer blame bad emergency care on illegals crowding the ER.
