Congressional Budget Office: “Skinny Repeal” Would Result in 16 Million Losing Health Insurance

Earlier this evening, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) issued a revised estimate of the impact of a “skinny repeal” of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), concluding that, by 2026 (in ten years),  16 million would lose their health insurance. The analysis is primarily based on the repeal of the individual mandate, which the CBO had previously estimated to result in 15 million Americans losing their health insurance.

It is still unclear what other provisions might be included in the “skinny repeal” bill, which will likely be voted on this Friday after the 20 hours of general debate ends.
