White House hammers CBO for health bill score

Source: The Hill

"The White House slammed the Congressional Budget Office after its analysis showed the Senate Republicans’ healthcare bill would leave 22 million more people uninsured over the next decade. 'The CBO has consistently proven it cannot accurately predict how healthcare legislation will impact insurance coverage,' the White House said in a statement on Monday evening. 'This history of inaccuracy, as demonstrated by its flawed report on coverage, premiums, and predicted deficit arising out of Obamacare, reminds us that its analysis must not be trusted blindly.' President Trump’s team is questioning the credibility of the non-partisan budget office in order to stanch the political fallout from the score. The numbers have created a hurdle for GOP leaders, who are hoping to hold a vote on the ObamaCare overhaul this week, before senators leave for July 4 recess." (06/26/17)
