CBO: Trumpcare Leaves 23M More Uninsured in a Decade

Post by Guest on Thu May 25, 2017 7:49 am

According to a Congressional Budget Office estimate released Wednesday, the American Health Care Act would increase the projected number of people without health insurance by 14 million next year and by 23 million in 2026. Additionally, it would reduce the federal deficit by $119 billion over a decade—which is less than the $150 billion in savings projected in March for the previous iteration of the bill. “Premiums would vary significantly according to health status and the types of benefits provided, and less healthy people would face extremely high premiums,” the budget office concluded. The AHCA narrowly passed the House of Representatives earlier this month.

This is just absolutely abysmal! How can a country fuck around with people's health? This isn't fair and really is one of the things that makes me pissed off with America - it's shabby treatment of its own people.

It's almost like they don't really want people live long.

Did you see Montana Republican candidate Gianforte when faced with the CBO report? Violence. It's all they have left.
