CBO score for Senate health care bill: 22 million uninsured by 2026

Thomas Kaplan and Robert Pear, reporting for the New York Times:

The Senate bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act would increase the number of people without health insurance by 22 million by 2026, a figure that is only slightly lower than the 23 million more uninsured that the House version would create, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office said Monday.

Next year, 15 million more people would be uninsured compared with current law, the budget office said.

The legislation would decrease federal deficits by a total of $321 billion over a decade, the budget office said.

The argument from the right will be, "Hey, at least it's better than the mean old House bill!"
