On Friday, Rep. Diane Black (R-TN) pointed out that data regarding the American Healthcare Act (AHCA) cited by House Democrats was produced by the Center for American Progress (CAP), and was inaccurate for a multitude of reasons.
After several House Democrats had cited this questionable reporting on the impact that AHCA would have on their congressional district, Rep. Black took to the podium.
“I want to recognize that our members on the other side of the aisle are sharing some data on the coverage per congressional district based on a study that was conducted by the Center for American Progress, which is a left-leaning organization,” Black stated.
Black goes on to point out inaccuracies in the report, “the Center for American Progress employs a flawed methodology for estimating this coverage. In fact, their foundational numbers are actually based on the CBO’s coverage estimates, estimates that the CBO itself established are not infallible.”
“These coverage numbers only take into account plans that they consider comprehensive, major medical policies. This is a term that is used in the very law that we are trying to dismantle today. These coverage estimates do not account for things that we have in our bill, such as HSA plans that allow purchase with tax credits, or many medical plans,” Black concludes about the report.
