Budget office slams GOP plan

Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee D-Texas and the House Budget Committee works on the Republican health care bill on Capitol Hill in Washington Thursday March 16 2017

The House Budget Committee narrowly advanced the GOP health care plan Thursday morning despite "no" votes by three conservatives on the panel, underscoring Republicans' disagreements over the legislation as it moves closer to a vote on the House floor. That would let Trump pressure "Democrats in these red states to come on board, '" Ross said, referring to Republican-leaning states where Democratic senators face re-election next year. But no projection is infallible, particularly when it comes to large, complex programs. In 2018, they say 14 million more people would join the ranks of the uninsured. It depends whose ox is being gored. "And there needs to be some adjustments to relieve some of that cost shift to the states and to make sure that we don't go back to where we were before - which was we just had our emergency room filled with those who didn't have any coverage". "That's not going to happen with us".

The committee vote came four days after the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office projected the legislation would boot 24 million people from health coverage. It doesn't repeal Obamacare.

"I love the folks at the CBO, they work really hard, they do, but sometimes we ask them to do stuff they're not capable of doing, and estimating the impact of a bill of this size probably isn't the - isn't the best use of their time", Mulvaney told ABC's "This Week" program.

The CBO analysis reportedly shook members of Congress, as many were already on the fence regarding the American Health Care Act before the CBO did any sort of analysis.

All Democrats voted against the measure.

CBO estimated in 2013 that 22 million people would be purchasing insurance through the exchanges in 2016. - Comments to reporters Tuesday.

The president was so enthused about the development that he brought it up moments later in an unrelated White House meeting on veterans benefits.

John Katko, from a closely divided district in upstate NY , who cited inadequate insurance access and cost controls. Last week, Trump agreed to add fresh Medicaid curbs to appease some conservatives.

These enrollment numbers are dramatically different than the CBO's forecasted enrollment numbers in 2013.

RSC Chairman Mark Walker of North Carolina said he would still like to make the work requirements mandatory, but that the president's pledges were enough to win members over.

During the presidential campaign and as recently as January, Trump repeatedly stressed his support for universal health coverage, saying his plan to replace the Affordable Care Act would provide "insurance for everybody". It will be in a much simplified form. The number of healthy "young invincibles" who need to sign up for Obamacare insurance policies to stem the tidal wave of red ink for insurance companies has fallen again.

But costs by 2026 would remain some 20 to 25 percent higher for people age 55 to 64, CBO said. Insurance coverage expanded. By contrast, Trumpcare would repeal most tax increases and curtail subsidies.

TRUMP, at a Cabinet meeting Monday: "Obamacare, all of a sudden, the last couple of weeks, is getting a false rep that maybe it's OK".

"ObamaCare is imploding. It is a disaster and 2017 will be the worst year yet, by far!" he tweeted.
