The Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Senate Republicans’ repeal of the Affordable Care Act would increase the number of Americans without health coverage by 22 million. That bad CBO score has Republicans jittery and makes passage less likely.
But let’s look on the bright side. In March, Republicans offered a plan that knocked 24 million Americans off their health coverage. In May, House Republicans voted for a plan that pushed only 23 million Americans into insurancelessness. Now at the end of June, Republicans have the newly uninsured down to 22 million.
Every six weeks, Republicans are finding a way to keep another million Americans insured. Keep working, Republicans! At this rate, by January 2020, you should be able to come up with a plan that breaks even with ObamaCare!
