BREAKING: CBO Has Scored The Latest Healthcare Bill

The Congressional Budget Office has scored the latest Senate healthcare bill, and their predictions are out. The CBO is predicting that by 2026, 22 million fewer people will be insured if the bill were to pass.

Jim Acosta had more:

Earlier in the day, the White House's Twitter account tweeted that the CBO had been wrong in their predictions in the past, in what seemed like a sub-tweet at the office.                                                  

Further, the CBO is predicting that the new bill will lower the deficit and cut Medicaid by 26 percent. Premiums would be lower by about 30 percent under the proposed bill.
