Secretary of Health and Human Services Tom Price and Director of the Office of Budget and Management Mick Mulvaney rejected the Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) assessment of the increase in uninsured Americans under the GOP’s proposed health care law at a press conference Monday.
“They’re going to be able to buy a coverage policy that they want for themselves and for their family if they’re going to have the kind fo choices that they want,” Price said.
Price expressed the belief that more people would be insured under the American Health Care Act than under Obamacare.
Mulvaney took issue with the CBO prediction from the point of view of Medicaid expansion.
“The CBO score assumes that if you are on Medicaid today, that you choose to get off Medicaid when the mandate goes away. Does that make sense to anybody?” Mulvaney asked.
“The plan doesn’t get rid of Medicaid expansion,” Mulvaney said.
