According to the independent Congressional Budget Office, Republican plans to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act could cause 24 million Americans to lose health insurance. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is a federal agency within the legislative branch of the government that provides budget and economic information to Congress.
The Republican legislators are rushing too quickly to make good on their promise to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Time for all to step back and re-assess what is being proposed. Although there may have been problems with the Affordable Care Act – just like there were problems with other programs such as Medicare at its inception, it would likely make more sense to fix what was wrong rather than scrap the whole program.
