When Donald Trump first entered the presidential race in 2015, his slogan was, “Make America Great Again.”
By the time he announced his candidacy in February 2016, his pledge had become something else: Make America Great, Again!
Trump, the Republican Party, and the conservative movement had come together behind the idea that a government-run health care system was the best solution to America’s economic woes.
And in January, the Trump Administration announced that it was going to move forward with its effort to repeal and replace Obamacare.
It was going ahead with its plan for the entire country to get insurance for nothing.
It would make health care cheaper for everybody.
But the White House had to wait a few weeks for the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) to score the plan, and it didn’t take long for Trump to be slammed as a liar, a fraud, and a dangerous risk to American health care.
A week later, the CBO released its report.
As it turns out, the White Senate budget office didn’t score the WhiteHouse’s plan, either.
In its official score, the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Service (CPS) estimated that the Senate Republican health care plan would increase the deficit by $880 billion over 10 years, as well as have a greater impact on the federal deficit than the House GOP plan.
But when the Whitehouse was asked about the CBO’s score and what they found, it was an administration effort to hide its score from the public, a political stunt meant to save face and distract from the disastrous rollout of the Senate health care bill.
What is it about health care that has been so successful?
The answer lies in the sheer amount of money it takes to implement it.
Health care costs have gone up dramatically in the past two decades.
The average cost of a prescription drug is now $12,000 per year.
In the past 10 years alone, the average cost for a person with a pre-existing condition has grown by more than 400 percent.
And the average person in the United States now spends more than $2,500 on insurance each year.
While there are a lot of factors behind this dramatic increase in costs, the health care industry itself is largely responsible for the explosion in health care costs.
The medical device industry, which is responsible for making some of the most expensive devices in the world, has seen its share of the increase.
In 2017 alone, drugmakers made $2.2 trillion in profits, up from $2 billion in 2015.
And healthcare spending per person has increased dramatically, too.
The Congressional Budget and Management Act (CBDMA), the law that created the Joint Committee on Taxation, estimated that in 2019 alone, healthcare spending would rise by nearly $3,000 for every American.
And as more Americans were covered by private insurance, the cost of healthcare rose even faster.
What did CBO think?
The CBO was quick to point out that its report was a “draft” and that the TrumpCare bill did not include a detailed assessment of the health impacts.
But it also pointed out that “the House version of the bill would have increased the federal debt by $10 trillion over 10 months.”
And, in fact, the Senate bill does include a significant number of changes to the Affordable Care Act, the law Trump campaigned on promising to repeal.
What was the CBO doing in its analysis?
The analysis of the TrumpHouse bill used a number of different factors, including how much money the CBO expected the health insurance industry to spend.
It also looked at the costs of insurance plans to enrollees, and how much it would cost the government to subsidize those costs.
But while the CBO didn’t find that the bill did a very good job of balancing the financial impact of the cost increases, it did note that it would have had a greater effect on the deficit than most other proposals.
The CBO did not rate the House bill as a success, and its authors pointed out in their analysis that it wouldn’t have had the same impact on health care spending as some other Republicans’ health care plans.
But despite these findings, Republicans in Congress continue to push their health care proposal, which would cut Medicaid, slash Medicare, and eliminate the federal subsidy for health insurance.
How has the CBO scored TrumpCare?
The Congressional Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CFRB) used the CBO score to make their case against the House and Senate plans.
It found that the plan would have resulted in more than half of the total cost of the plan being spent on taxes and penalties, which Republicans argue is a giveaway to the insurance industry.
The analysis also found that there were other significant costs that would have been added to the bill.
The budget office did note some limitations to the analysis, but said it was still confident in its findings.
One of the main points of the analysis was that it didn`t take into account the fact that the tax breaks the CBO was looking at would have actually been repealed.
The plan also excluded the Medicaid expansion, the
