The non-partisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) has confirmed what we already know: The American Health Care Act (AHCA) would wreak havoc on the health care system.
The American Health Care Act would strip affordable coverage from working people, leaving millions uninsured and millions more facing drastically higher premiums and out-of-pocket costs. It would return us to a time when only the wealthy were able to afford comprehensive coverage.
The Cassidy/Collins proposal is not a true replacement for the Affordable Care Act. It would cover significantly fewer people than the ACA and gut consumer protections, allowing insurers to once again discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions and charge women higher premiums than men.
