The Congressional Budget Office did complete its scoring of the Senate healthcare bill today and released its data this afternoon. Yes, it's as mean as the House bill.

The CBO says 22 million more would lose insurance under the GOP Senate bill (49 million uninsured by 2026) as compared to projections under the ACA now in effect (28 million uninsured by 2026).

The agency says the the 22 million increase in uninsureds is attributable to 15 million fewer who would be enrolled in Medicaid and 7 million fewer who would be privately insured.

From U. S. News and World Report, an update on where the Senate's healthcare bill stands this week:

Senators are returning to the Capitol after a weeklong July 4 recess that, if anything, saw GOP support erode for a bill fashioned by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.


The No. 2 Republican in the Senate says senators will vote next week on a new health care bill to repeal and replace key parts of so-called Obamacare.

Sen. John Cornyn of Texas tells reporters that the revised legislation will be unveiled this week.

Hopefully, we will get to see the CBO's revised fiscal note this week, too?

Personally, I'm having a hard time imagining consensus on this version, either.
