CBO report on GOP health(don't)care plan
Continuing from the last post, the report is out. Now we know why the GOP tried to defame it. It will kick 24 million off insurance by 2024, 14 million by next year, and increase premiums 15-20%. It will also reduce the federal deficit by $377 billion from '17 to '26, largely due to the drastic cuts in services and 24 million fewer insureds. Many of those losing coverage will be due to State reductions in Medicaid, so it disproportionately affects the poor. Yep, this should make America Hate Again.
