Study: Trumpcare would cause 24 million to lose insurance coverage

Posted By on Mon, Mar 13, 2017 at 3:24 PM

The Congressional Budget Office report on the impact of Trumpcare, the House idea to revise Obamacare, would cause 24 million people to lose insurance coverage by 2026. (not 2016 as originally written) Some 14 million would be dropped the first year. It would save $337 billion.

Let the "fake news" claims begin.

Or, if you prefer: This is what we call freedom.

But .... wait. Paul Ryan says this report shows the bill improves access and lowers cost!
