The Congressional Budget Office estimates that 22 million more people will be uninsured by the end of the next 10 years under the Senate Republican health care plan than under current law, with 15 million more uninsured persons in the next year alone. The number, which is only a slight improvement from the CBO's estimate of the health care bill passed by the House of Representatives in May, comes in the office's analysis of the Better Care Reconciliation Act, a draft of which was released last week. The act, which faces opposition from Democrats and concerns from at least five Republicans in the Senate -- enough to block its passage -- could further result in a reduction of the cumulative federal deficit by $321 billion by 2026, largely due to cuts in Medicaid spending, according to the CBO's report.

The Congressional Budget Office will release its first analysis of the Republican Senate health care bill Monday, again shining a spotlight on the nonpartisan reviewers of congressional legislation. As the House of Representatives worked its way through its version of a health care law, Democrats frequently pointed to the office's estimates -- or lack thereof, in some cases -- as rationale to vote against or delay movement on the Republicans' plans. “It is reckless for Republicans to make Congress vote on this mess of a plan before we have those answers from CBO,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., argued in early March as two House committees reviewed the bill and then voted along party lines to approve it.
