Report: White House Analysis Projects 26M Will Lose Insurance Coverage

An independent White House analysis of the American Health Care Act says the proposed overhaul will cause 26 million people to become uninsured, according to a document obtained by Politico. The White House analysis predicts even higher uninsurance rates than a report prepared by the Congressional Budget Office, which warned that 24 million Americans would become uninsured. The White House report contradicts earlier claims from Tom Price, President Donald Trump’s secretary of health and human services, who dismissed the CBO report. “We disagree strenuously with the report that was put out,” Price told reporters Monday evening after the CBO released its report. “It’s just not believable is what we would suggest.”
