Hоuse Schedules Afternооn Healthcare Vоte; CBO Revises Cоst

The CBO said the AHCA’s amendments — made to appease Republicans who said they wouldn’t vote for the bill in its original form — would decrease the federal deficit by $150 billion in a decade. The original bill was projected to cut the deficit by $337 billion. The CBO said the amendments would also not increase coverage, meaning there would still be 24 million fewer people with healthcare by 2026 if signed into law.
