Mick Mulvaney, the director of the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), said that he does not agree with the Congressional Budget Office (CBO)’s assessment of the American Health Care Act (AHCA), based on the CBO’s track record, during an interview on Tuesday.
MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski asked Mulvaney point-blank whether or not he agrees with the CBO report.
“I don’t believe the facts are correct,” Mulvaney said emphatically. “I’m saying that based upon a track record of the CBO being wrong before, and we believe the CBO is wrong now.”
Mulvaney went on to point out that the CBO has been wrong on multiple occasions regarding Obamacare and the impact that it would have.
“Let’s say you are on Medicaid today okay. The House bill passes tomorrow. The CBO assumes that you will go off Medicaid, okay? It’s a free program, but the CBO has assumed that as soon as the mandate is gone, that you will give up something free in exchange for nothing. That makes no sense,” Mulvaney explained to the panel.
