Kaine, Warner on CBO score on Senate Republican healthcare repeal

The Senate Republican healthcare bill could see 4 million people with employer-provided health insurance lose their coverage, according to a report from the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office.

In their analysis of the draft legislation, the CBO explains: "In 2018, 15 million more people would be uninsured under this legislation than under current law - primarily because the penalty for not having insurance would be eliminated".

The CBO in May estimated that the House bill would strip 23 million Americans of their health coverage over the next decade, but also would reduce the federal deficit by $119 billion over the same duration. It provides smaller subsidies for less generous health plans and higher deductibles, repeals the individual mandate that requires all Americans have health coverage or pay a fine and allows states to opt out of Obamacare marketplaces and essential health benefit requirements.

However, the Senate bill, if becoming law, would decrease federal deficits by a total of 321 billion us dollars over a decade. Hillary Clinton recently tweeted about the bill, referring to the GOP as the "death party" should they pass the Health Care bill. Susan Collins of ME, a key swing vote, said Thursday that coverage losses of the size estimated by the CBO score were not acceptable. There are 52 Republican senators, and he needs 50 "yes" votes to move the bill through the Senate.
