What The CBO Says About Reconstructing Obamacare

This week, the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its score of the Republican Obamacare repeal bill, known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA). The 28-page document reports that, over a ten-year projection, AHCA will reduce federal deficits by $337 billion. It also estimates that a total of 52 million people by 2026 would be uninsured, compared to 28 million without coverage if Obamacare were still intact at that point in time.
