The CBO Weighs In

The Congressional Budget Office today released two reports on the post-SCOTUS world of the Affordable Care Act. First, the CBO estimates the effect of the Court's ruling that makes the Medicaid expansion a state option. The estimate, here, is that for the period 2012–2022 this will reduce spending by $84 billion though with the cost of an additional 3 million uninsured. The second report assesses the impact of H.R. 6079 (the Repeal of Obamacare Act). The CBO estimates, here, a net increase in federal budget deficits of $109 billion for the period 2013–2022. [NPT]
