CBO Report Forecasting 24 Million People To Lose Health Insurance Under GOP Healthcare Plan

quote [ The eagerly awaited CBO report forecast that 14 million more people would be uninsured in 2018 and 24 million more in 2026 if the plan being considered in the House of Representatives were adopted. Obamacare enabled about 20 million previously uninsured Americans to obtain medical insurance. ]

So, 24 million overall, and and probably more after 2026. I have to say this is even more grim than my negative, cynical ass, thought it would be.
