The Fake News media is atwitter because the CBO panned it.
From the New York Times:If under the Republican Health Plan, 14 million Americans choose not to buy ridiculously overpriced unaffordable insurance, how is that bad?— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) March 14, 2017
The House Republican plan to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act would cause 24 million people to lose health insurance within a decade, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said on Monday.Neat trick as the program covered only 9 million people.
From the Wall Street Journal:
The House Republican effort to overhaul the Affordable Care Act could hit many rural areas particularly hard, according to a new analysis, sharply increasing the cost for some residents buying their own insurance.Didn't Obamacare already do that?
Fourteen million people would become uninsured next year if the top Republican proposal to repeal and replace Obamacare is signed into law, the Congressional Budget Office estimated Monday.That's because those 14 million will drop out once Republicans drop the mandate.
And on and on it goes. Where it stops, who the hell knows?
Because the CBO and the Fake News media have no credibility.
They blew it eight years ago when they foisted Obamacare on us.
Remember you can keep your doctor? When we said that was foolish, the media called us racist.
Remember premiums will go down an average of $2,500 a year? When we said that was foolish, the media called us racist.
Remember how this would increase jobs? When we said that was foolish and full-time jobs would become part-time, the media called us racist.
So now after eight years of telling us lies and calling us racist, the Fake News media wants us to listen.
President Trump Made 3 Big Promises on Health Care. The Budget Office Just Undercut All of Them.No one who voted for Trump cares.
The people who elected Trump president already figured some people will lose health insurance -- most of them by choice. President Trump's supporters already figured the repeal would hit their areas hardest.
But they also figured something the Fake News media overlook. Health insurance is not the same as health care. Medicaid covers the truly poor. Obamacare was just more government interference in people's lives.
If Obamacare were so good, why did President Obama have to force people to take it with a mandate?
I doubt anyone in the DC media ever asked that question, because hey, they are all geniuses.
But Trump supporters figured it out.
The CBO said this will cost 24 million people their insurance? That's nice, but no one cares. It lied eight years ago about Obamacare. No sane person believes them this time.
