CBO Reports That over 30 Million Will Lose Coverage Under Healthcare Bill
Donald Trump can't stand losing. He ordered GOP senators to stay in Washington until they pass a bill. This happened after he had given up on the bill and asked senators to simply repeal ACA. Trump's shift, which included threats to senators who opposed the bill, happened before the CBO report. That should bury the bill. Curiously, Trump promised his supporters a great healthcare plan that would be far superior to the ACA. The items that he cited in this appeal have almost nothing to do with a superior healthcare plan. For example, cutting taxes in the healthcare bill does nothing for those who use the plan.
