CBO: Repealing Without Replacing Obamacare Would Leave 32 Million More Uninsured

CBO: Repealing Without Replacing Obamacare Would Leave 32 Million More Uninsured

After taking a hands-off approach to the healthcare debate last week and suggesting on Tuesday that he was fine with letting Obamacare fail, Trump on Wednesday demanded that senators stay in Washington through their planned August recess until they can find common ground on healthcare.

Republicans are now considering a vote next week to only repeal Obamacare, not replace it.

The benchmark plan, however, would cover fewer benefits and require consumers to pay more out of pocket because it would only cover 58% of health care services, on average, instead of the 70% under Obamacare.

"If Republicans want to criticize someone for having problems with this bill, why are they not equally critical of anyone who wouldn't stand behind full repeal?" he told Politico. The CBO previously estimated that proposed law would result in 22 million more uninsured persons and a deficit reduction of $321 billion by 2026. The latest CBO score projects that, compared with Obamacare, 17 million more Americans will be uninsured in 2018, 27 million more in 2020, and 32 million more in 2026.

"ObamaCare is dead and the Democrats are obstructionists, no ideas or votes, only obstruction", Trump wrote. This provision would throw the individual insurance market into chaos, insurers and health policy experts said. As with the previous bill version, federal Medicaid spending would decline by 26% from 2017 through 2026. Many of them might choose to retreat to safer lines of business in the uncertain "zombie" period between the passage of such a repeal bill and its ultimate enactment. That's because Republican Sen.

Senate Republicans are now considering two versions of similar legislation, one that would repeal and replace, and another that would simply repeal Obamacare with a two-year delay to give the Senate more time to agree on a replacement.

The additional revenue is available because McConnell's bill will now retain two taxes on high-income households that were included in Obamacare to help fund the coverage expansion.

Trump's tweets on healthcare were some of almost a dozen the president sent on Saturday, blasting leaks to the media as well as defending his son and new White House Communication Director Anthony Scaramucci.

If "repeal-and-replace" can't pass, McConnell said he would revive the "repeal now, replace later" strategy as a last-ditch effort. Both options seem to lack the 50 votes needed to pass the Senate.
