Trump’s proposal to repeal the Affordable CARE Act has been met with mixed reactions.
Many of those who support the president’s plan say they’re concerned that it will cause more than a million people to lose their health insurance coverage, but many of those same people say they believe it will help people who otherwise may not have health insurance.
Some have even speculated that the plan is the “Trump Plan” because it is not limited to individuals or to individuals who have pre-existing conditions.
But some people are skeptical of the Trump Plan.
They say it could leave people with pre-disposed insurance and cause premiums to skyrocket.
“I think this will be the ‘Trump Plan’ as opposed to the ‘Cadillac Tax,'” said David Anderson, a policy analyst at the Center for American Progress.
“The premium increases will go way higher.
If they can raise the deductibles, then I think that could be a big incentive to keep people with preexisting conditions, even if they’re paying less for insurance.
It’s going to have a huge impact on the costs of health insurance for many people.”
The White House did not respond to a request for comment.
In a blog post on Monday, the Congressional Budget Office said the plan would increase the number of people who would have pre, pre-meditated, or pre-terminally ill insurance coverage by 13 million, or 12 million more people than would have been insured under the current law.
The CBO said the CBO estimate was based on the assumption that individuals would have to pay an average of $2,600 more per year in premiums.
The Congressional Budget Service did not provide data on the number who would not have insurance under the plan.
“The impact of the proposed repeal of the ACA is likely to be modest in absolute terms,” the CBO said.
“However, the proposed changes will increase the share of the population with pre, preexisted conditions, and their effects are likely to grow over time.
This would be especially true for low- and moderate-income individuals, since they will pay more for their insurance.”
The CBO also noted that the CBO does not estimate the economic impact of such a change.
The CBO found that the Trump plan would lead to an increase in the number or size of the uninsured population by about 2 million people.
The authors noted that many people would be eligible for Medicaid, and they also said that the GOP plan would create a huge number of uninsured people in the United States.
The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Board estimated that the Senate plan would leave about 24 million people without health insurance by 2026, according to its latest report.
On Monday, Sen. Ron Johnson, R-Wis., the Senate’s top Democrat, suggested that the Republican plan could have an economic impact that dwarfs the one he thinks it would.
Johnson, who is also the chairman of the Senate Budget Committee, told reporters that the nonpartisan CBO would estimate the impact of repealing the ACA, but added that there is a chance that it could be worse than the CBO estimated.
But Johnson acknowledged that there’s a difference between the CBO’s analysis of the effects of repealing and replacing the ACA and the Trump proposal.
While Johnson suggested that Republicans could find it easier to pass a repeal of Obamacare than the GOP proposal, Johnson said it’s possible the GOP will be able to pass it with a smaller deficit and a smaller increase in federal spending.
Asked if the CBO could be swayed by the economic effects of the GOP’s repeal, Johnson responded, “I think it would depend on how much revenue it takes to balance the budget.”
He said he believes the CBO can make an accurate assessment of the impact, but said it needs more data.
“I’m not going to be able really to make a decision until we have a number that the American people have a sense of how big that would be,” he said.
The nonpartisan CBO said that by 2027, it would estimate that there would be more than 14 million fewer Americans who had health insurance than were insured before the ACA was passed.
That number is based on an estimate that would reduce the number insured by 1.5 million people, and by 1 million more, the CBO added.
