The magical, mystical “23 million” who will “lose” health insurance.
Excerpt: Hopefully you watched Mick Mulvaney explain the magical, mystical world of budget “cuts” in the mind of Democrats in Congress. The same sort of thinking underlies the “estimate” that 23 million Americans will lose health insurance coverage under the Republican American Health Care Act (ACHA). I think it is fair to state that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is highly constrained in the math that it must employ (the CBO made the “23 million” estimate). However, no one “explained” that to the Democrats who are screaming “fowl” from the rooftops about the AHCA. Hopefully today’s missive will help you understand that the “23-million-estimate” is mystical and magical.
