22 million more uninsured under Senate’s Obamacare replacement plan, CBO says

The Senate health plan replacing Obamacare would result in 22 million fewer insured Americans over a decade and cut the deficit by $420 billion, according to a new Congressional Budget Office projection that could hurt GOP efforts to revive their repeal effort. The new independent analysis does not include a controversial amendment from Sen. Ted Cruz allowing health insurers to offer skimpier coverage.

The report comes a day after the CBO found a separate Senate bill repealing major parts of Obamacare without an replacement would result in 32 million more uninsured Americans and cut the deficit by $473 billion.
