What does this make it? Zombie Trumpcare 4.0? But who's counting? The Congressional Budget Office, that's who!

The CBO scored previous versions of the health care bill, but has not yet scored the one the House of Representatives voted on in May 2017.

Washington Post fact-checker Glenn Kessler discovered an interesting tidbit buried in the Congressional Budget Office analysis of the earlier House GOP Obamacare repeal bill, that isn’t that much different from this one.

The House just passed the new health care bill to replace the Affordable Care Act. It’ll now move to the Senate, but it’s already gotten a lot of opposition, and rightfully so: it’s pretty awful and the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) didn’t even score it.

Nothing has substantially changed in Trumpcare since March, except that iterations 2.0 through 3.1 (the latest scam from Rep. Fred Upton) have made it worse.
