As expected the CBO report is very, very bad.

Highlights:
14 million more uninsured by 2018
21 million more uninsured by 2020
26 million more uninsured by 2026

People over 60 will see their premiums rise 20-25%

Cutting Medicaid however will save the government nearly $935 billion, and the rich will see tax cuts up to $599 billion. This means, the GOP will LOVE it.

What does CBO stand for, anyway? Completely Bad Opinions, probably.

Trump's whole "everyone must be covered" thing is feeling pretty funny right now.

He'll deny he ever said that

And his supporters will claim that "everyone" doesn't literally mean everyone.

See under Trump words no longer having specific meanings. Like facts

Their new take is that what "candidate Trump" said can't be treated the same was as what "President Trump" says.

Except microwaveable hot pocket cameras.

it's all about access, you see? access is what's important.

if people choose to be poor enough that they can't afford to buy the health insurance that they have access to just because they don't have enough money then there's really nothing we can do about that other than cut taxes on the wealthy and continue environmental deregulation so the coal mining jobs will come back and people can make more money that they will then spend on their new access to health care. that's called choice.

thank goodness i have access to buying a BMW and/or staying at the 4 Seasons. perhaps neither are financially possible, but the point is that i have access to the option of spending lots of money should i so choose and one day have it as well.

i love America.

Not that anyone had any doubt, but that's as much admission as any that Trump is unconcerned with the working and even middle classes. And undoubtedly he never gave a shit about them.

Well, the GOP wants to take the health care out of health insurance. It's disgusting. They want to eliminate the requirement that insurance cover essential health benefits. What are these essential health benefits, you ask? Nothing major...
