THAT is a loss of healthcare to almost 10% of Americans….
And 14 million would lose their insurance within a year….
But House bill would save $337 Billion projected out to ten years…
Oh, and healthcare insurance premiums could rise by 10 to 19% right away….
The White House called the report ‘Bogus’ …
It certainly has NOTHING to do with Donald Trump campaigning on a promise that ‘NOBODY’ would lose their Healthcare Insurance….
The House Ryan crew focused on the budget savings without answering for the millions who would NOT have health insurance that Obamacare makes available…

House Republicans’ proposal to rewrite federal health-care law would more than reverse the gains the Affordable Care Act has made in the number of Americans with health insurance, while curbing the federal deficit, according to a widely anticipated forecast by congressional analysts.
The analysis, released late Monday afternoon by the Congressional Budget Office, predicts that 24 million fewer people would have coverage a decade from now than if the Affordable Care Act remains intact, nearly doubling the share of Americans who are uninsured from 10 percent to 19 percent. The office projects the number of uninsured people would jump 14 million after the first year
But the GOP legislation, which has been speeding through House committees since it was introduced a week ago, would lower the deficit by $337 billion during that time, primarily by lessening spending on Medicaid and government aid for people buying health plans on their own.
The report predicted that premiums would be 15 percent to 20 percent higher in the first year compared with those under the Affordable Care Act but 10 percent lower on average after 2026. By and large, older Americans would pay “substantially” more and younger Americans less.
