Notations On Our World (Special @POTUS Watch Edition): On Healthcare & the Budget

CBO: Obamacare repeal bill would leave 23 million more
people without health insurance

As President Trump continues his travels, the challenges in Washington continue.   The Congressional Budget has just scored the American Healthcare Act:

New From CBO

    H.R. 1628, American Health Care Act of 2017

    CBO and JCT estimate that enacting the American Health Care Act would reduce federal deficits by $119 billion over the coming decade and increase the number of people who are uninsured by 23 million in 2026 relative to current law.

    This is Congressman Mark Sanford noted his profound reservations about the Budget as reported by the Washington Post:

    A Freedom Caucus Republican says the foundation of the Trump budget is ‘a lie’
