On June 22, 2017, NPR reported that Senate Republicans released the Better Care Reconciliation Act, their health care overhaul proposal.
The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) reported on May 24, 2017 that the AHCA would leave 23 million Americans without health insurance within ten years.
Congressmen Leonard Lance, Frank LoBiondo, Chris Smith and Rodney Frelinghuysen said they would vote no prior on the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
Obamacare lowered health costs and families could spend more money towards other necessities such as housing, childcare and transportation to and from work.
If the ACA is repealed, Booker writes, “In New Jersey, nearly 800,000 residents, including 98,000 children, would lose their health coverage.”
