In 2009 the CBO projected ObamaCare as being far better than it turned out to be for Americans and America.
www.weeklystandard.com...

The CBO is projecting that the ObamaCare Replacement bill(s) will be far worse than their ObamaCare projections.
www.cbo.gov...

The Congressional Budget Office must be staffed by mostly Obama Administration hires, or, simply staffed by people who, for decades, have never been held accountable for their estimates and projections. Las Vegas gives more accurate odds and projections than the Congressional Budget Office!

p.s. They are a so-called Bipartisan government agency. An embarrassment to both sides of the aisle.

Any other job where you are as wrong as these idiots.

You would be looking for a new job.

Why would anyone listen to them ?

That's because of the Republican governors that refused to participate and the GOP senators who legislated amendments that sabotaged the bill that the CBO initially reviewed.

The idiots are saying TrumpCare will remove 22 million people from ObamaCare, but there's only 20 million on ObamaCare! (Actually 2 million have quit since 1.1.2017. So...it's 18 million on ObamaCare.)

There's no such thing as Obamacare! There is only the "Affordable Care Act".

RE: www.forbes.com...

The CBO continually adjusted it's ObamaCare projections...from 2009 to 2015. It was FLAT OUT WRONG every time! They should stick to estimating the cost of a new flag pole in front of the Capital Building.

If you want to get all legalese, it's the "Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act". (PPACA)

It's just as I said. Republican states opted out and Republican law makers gutted the "risk corridor".

Most Republican states opted-out of Medicaid Expansion. Medicaid Expansion allows people who earn up to $16,500 to enroll in FREE Medicaid. TEXAS is one state that didn't expand Medicaid. In Austin, a 45 year-old who earns $12,000 can buy a $850 Deductible health plan for $8 a month. Having a private health plan is better than having Medicaid.

Senator MARCO RUBIO single-handedly terminated 1/3 of the "risk corridor" program. Essentially it was taking tax-payer money and reimbursing health insurance companies for some of the financial losses that ObamaCare nailed them with. A taxpayer bailout of insurance companies.

The House and Senate bills both reinstate these "bailouts"...under the reassuring name, "Market Stabilization Provisions".

There aren't 22 million people on ObamaCare. CBO is SCREWY!

There aren't 22 million people on ObamaCare because there is no such thing as Obamacare, there is only the Affordable Care Act, including "Patient Protection".

The Congressional Budget Office is mostly useless. Thank to the rules, they can only score what they are given and they have to score it against current conditions as if nothing the bill will do will change anything.

imagine if that had been true of Obamacare ... if nothing in the bill had changed anyone's behavior - individual or business. That's how the CBO had to score it, and they could only score what they received from its authors which was the rough framework only and did not include any of the thousands of pages of regulations that were written after passage.

We know how worthwhile the CBO score on that bill was, and I can only imagine any CBO scoring on this bill will be similarly accurate.

Okay, I'll bite. What in heck is "ObamaCare"?



In 2010, Medicare provided health insurance to 48 million Americans—40 million people age 65 and older and eight million younger people with disabilities.
en.wikipedia.org...(United_States)


73.5 Million Americans are currently enrolled in Medicaid.
www.statista.com...

Now, who's on Obamacare, and what is it?

Or maybe the CBO did not anticipate the republicans blocking funding and any and all measures to fix the bill. thinkprogress.org...

I can't believe that any citizen of the USA would ever consider a health care program set up and RUN by the FED govt...

Take off the blinders and see how successful the FEDS have run any program....

how is having an $850 deductible better than getting full coverage from the government?

Right, it's the repubs.

If the dems did not like the repubs crappy (and they were) amendments then they should not have voted for the bill.

And if memory serves me, and it does, the Dems were the only politicians stupid enough to vote for the ACA.
