The Congressional Budget Office released its assessment of the latest version of the Republican health care bill. According to the report, around 23 million people would lose their insurance coverage by 2026. House Speaker Paul Ryan says his plan will cut premiums, but critics warn that the bill would have the opposite effect for those who are ill or have pre-existing conditions.
