American Health Care Act


As you may know, there has been an ongoing debate in Congress about health care. We would like you to know your views on this issue.

The impact of the proposed American Health Care Act (AHCA) has been assessed by the Congressional Budget Office (hereafter referred to as the CBO). The CBO is a non-partisan Congressional agency that serves Congress by assessing the consequences of proposed laws. Its assessments of the impact of the proposed health care law will be mentioned throughout this survey.

The CBO estimates that over the next 10 years the biggest changes that would come of the proposed law would include:
  • A reduction in government spending on healthcare of $993 billion
  • A reduction of various taxes of $664 billion
  • A reduction in the budget deficit of $119 billion
  • An increase in the number of people without health insurance of 23 million
More details from the CBO assessment will be provided as we go along.
