‘GOPs New Health Care Plan Screws More People Than Gerard Butler’: Twitter Reacts to CBO Analysis of AHCA
Monday afternoon saw the CBO release their analysis of new GOP healthcare bill. Under it, a whopping 52 million Americans would be uninsured by 2026 (as opposed to 28 million should the current plan remain in place), while the national deficit would be cut by $337 billion over the course of a decade.
Given the dramatic findings by the Congressional Budget Office, many took to Twitter to express their feelings.

When the GOP spins the CBO score as great news for the deficit, know that it’s because of massive Medicaid cuts & elimination of subsidies. pic.twitter.com/hEvKREQISh

Yeah, but the CBO is fake. Instead, let us look at this crayon drawing I completed this morning. Clearly, everyone is smiling and it’s sunny

If the government can’t people in good health, it has no business spending more than this on defense. https://t.co/P96KPBuBmK

Trump in January: “Insurance for everybody!”
CBO today: 14 million will lose insurance under Trumpcare

I expected the CBO report to be bad for GOP. I was wrong. It’s worse. Far worse.

CBO: Stopping federal funding to planned parenthood would save $156 million, and lead to “several thousand” more births.

CBO has effectively killed the Trumpcare proposal and revealed, yet again, the president to be an egregious fraud all at once. https://t.co/SjE9oznLez
