On NBC’s Meet The Press, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price said, “If you create a system that’s accessible for everybody and you provide the financial feasibility for everybody to get coverage, then we have a great opportunity to increase coverage over where we are right now. Nobody will be worse off financially in the process that we’re going through, understanding that they’ll have choices.”
By virtually all accounts, including Speaker Of The House Paul Ryan, this is a lie. The current bill reduces subsidies, increases the cost of health care for older Americans, and will make it harder for a large group of Americans to afford health care coverage.
The CBO estimate is over the next ten years, there will be 24 Million more Americans without healthcare coverage.
