A new report from the Congressional Budget Office hands critics of the health reform law a great new talking point: Under a worst-case scenario, the law could lead to 20 million people losing their employer-sponsored insurance in 2019.
The agency doesn’t think that’s likely, however. The new report, released Thursday, said the agency expects 3 million to 5 million fewer people to have employer coverage each year because of the health reform law. That’s close to the agency’s original estimate, which predicted 3 million people could lose their workplace coverage.
But the new report also lays out the worst-case scenarios and the best-case scenarios, which led to the 20 million estimate. In the best-case scenario, CBO says an increase of 3 million workers with employer insurance is possible.
OBAMA: If you like your doctor or health care plan, you can keep it.
Obama is a liar!
The guy lied to us about ObamaCare from the beginning.
No, you can't keep your doctor or health care plan.
No, you can't.
