MSNBC Reports: Republican ObamaCare Replacement Will Reduce Deficits

On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) released its estimate on the impact of the House GOP’s Obamacare replacement. The CBO report finds that the American Health Care Act (AHCA) would reduce the deficit by $337 billion over the next ten years.

“First of all, the estimate from the Congressional Budget Office, again the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office, they estimate that by enacting this legislation, this Republican health care replacement legislation, they say it would reduce federal deficits by $337 billion over the next ten years,” MSNBC’s Steve Kornacki reported.

Kornacki went on to say that the CBO estimates that, in 2018, 14 million fewer people would have insurance under the Republican plan. Kornacki did note that this decrease in people insured would be because people, without the individual mandate, would opt out of having insurance.
