CBO report on the AHCA: 24 million will lose coverage

The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office has released their report on the GOP’s Affordable Care Act (ACA) replacement plan. The numbers released in this report are grim, and will only make it more difficult for Republicans to explain why their legislation will outperform the ACA.The bottom line is that 14 million will lose coverage under this plan in 2018, rising to 21 million in 2020 and 24 million in 2026. In the non group market, premiums will rise 15-20% in 2018 and 2019.
