The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) says the Obamacare replacement bill would reduce the federal deficit by $337B over ten years. I mean sure, 28 million people will lose their health coverage. Many will die. But hey, isn’t it all about reducing the deficit?
We could reduce the deficit by $598B A YEAR by eliminating the military. Now I’m sure most Americans, especially Republicans, would say that isn’t a very good idea. But hey, if it is all about reducing the deficit regardless of the outcome, why is this any worse?
