CAFP Strongly Opposes the Senate Health Care Overhaul Bill
U.S. Senate leadership recently released the Better Care Reconciliation Act (BCRA) to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA). The Congressional Budget Office released its analysis of the bill this week, estimating that under the BCRA, 49 million people (nearly 20 percent of the U.S. population) would be uninsured in ten years, shattering previous historical rates of uninsured individuals and nearly doubling the current rate. If passed, the BCRA would represent the largest rollback of the social safety net in American history.
