It still takes coverage away from 15 million in the first year, 22 million over ten years. Show More Summary
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office is out with yet another report on yet another Republican proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare. And yet again, the CBO is projecting that 22 million fewer people would have health insurance as a result of the legislation. This time, the CBO looked a revised version of a bill offered […]
The Congressional Budget Office released yet another analysis of yet another Republican Obamacare repeal plan, and this time the numbers are still awful.

The Congressional Budget Office released their score of the Senate’s Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA). It does not include the Cruz amendment. There is not a whole lot of difference since the last score as there are not many large changes on the coverage side. I just want to pull out a few things. The […]
Catherine Rampell: This ridiculous Republican propaganda is exactly why we need the CBO: Tuesday I wrote about the GOP’s systematic efforts to discredit and disempower any independent voice — media, the Congressional Budget Office, the Office of Government Ethics —...
No matter what version of the Republican health-care scheme it examines, the Congressional Budget Office reiterates the conclusion of Trumpcare’s critics: These proposals are not about expanding affordable health-care insurance.

The Congressional Budget Office offered a quick analysis of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.)’s latest plan to end Obamacare Wednesday afternoon—and its conclusions are damning. McConnell’s “new” bill is essentially the same as one Republicans passed—and President Barack Obama vetoed—in 2015, just with the dates moved forward two years. But CBO doesn’t see any […]

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Congressional Budget Office said it would release on Wednesday its estimate for Senate legislation that would repeal Obamacare without a replacement healthcare plan.
The Congressional Budget Office has released its estimates on the new Obamacare repeal bill.
One of the most important reasons the effort to repeal the ACA appears to have failed is that the Congressional Budget Office — despite being supervised by a Republican — provided accurate information about the effects of AHCA and BCRA. And this in turn compelled the media to do what it do disastrously failed to […]

According to a Bloomberg report this morning, Senate Republicans are “anxiously” awaiting the Congressional Budget Office’s score of the GOP plan to repeal and replace Obamacare. Well, they should relax. For all the hand-wringing going on in Washington over the upcoming health-care vote, there is little reason to give much credence to the CBO’s expected […]
