Fox: “Congressional budget scorekeepers released their highly anticipated analysis of Republicans’ ObamaCare repeal bill late Monday, estimating millions more people would be uninsured under their legislation – though it would reduce the federal deficit. The Congressional Budget Office predicted 14 million more people would be uninsured in 2018, with that number growing to 24 million by 2026.
The projections are likely to fuel opponents who warn the measure would toss millions of voters off insurance plans. Republican supporters of the repeal plan, however, for days have downplayed the significance of the CBO findings, noting that the same office’s coverage projections for the original Affordable Care Act were off by millions.”
The America Health Care Act would reduce the budget by $337 billion in the first 10 years, this story goes on much farther before it mentions that.
More uninsured because of freedom of choice? More choices? Lower costs? The benefits go on. There is one primary win here as a result of the CBO review which was not only missed by Fox, but overlooked by everyone else.
That $337 billion budget reduction which was hidden, that’s the frontpage! The savings clears the bill to proceed in reduction repeal.
