CBO: 14 million people would lose coverage next year under GOP health care plan

CBO reportThe Congressional Budget Office’s report on the American Health Care Act estimates that 14 million people would be without health insurance in 2018 versus under the plan, while 24 million people would be uninsured in 2026 than under the current plan.

The 28-page report released Monday afternoon was bad news for Republicans who had been preemptively attacking the office in anticipation of a negative report.

The CBO was created in 1974 with the mission to be a nonpartisan analyst of proposed legislation, providing independent reports on the potential economic impact of new bills. The current CBO director is Keith Hall, who was appointed in 2015. Hall served on President George W. Bush’s Council of Economic Advisors, and saw his selection rankle some Democrats due to a 2013 op-ed in which he criticized Obamacare and proposals to raise the minimum wage. The CBO has strict rules to limit financial conflicts of interest and political activities by its employees.

Generally, a bill receives its CBO scoring before members vote, but Republicans in the House have already pushed the AHCA past some legislative hurdles before the report is available.
