It turns out that when the government spends more on health care, more people get health care. The CBO concluded that the GOP bill would spend about $1 trillion less on health care, so about 23 million fewer Americans would have coverage. And most of the money stripped out of the health-care system would be returned to wealthy Americans in the form of tax cuts.
The GOP wants to take money that the government has been spending on the poor and working class—mostly for expanded Medicaid coverage or tax credits to help moderate-income families afford their premiums—and give it back to high earners.
