Congressional Budget Office Projects 23 Million Americans To Lose Health Insurance Under Trumpcare

The current Republican bill to repeal and replace major parts of Obamacare will lead to 23 million more Americans not having health insurance coverage by 2026 if it becomes law, the Congressional Budget Office projected Wednesday.

That is only 1 million fewer uninsured people than the 24 million people more uninsured that had been projected for an earlier version of the GOP bill. Most of the coverage losses still would occur next year, when 14 million more people would become uninsured than would otherwise be if Obamacare remained in place, CBO said in its new report. – via CNBC

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.

In other words Trump is a greater threat to american citizens than terrorism by a factor of a nearly 1,000,000.
