The Congressional Budget Office expects to release its analysis of the U.S. House of Representatives' healthcare overhaul legislation on May 24, the agency said in a statement on Friday.

The Republican-led House passed its bill earlier this month without a final CBO analysis, or "score," on how the measure would impact the U.S. budget or affect health insurance coverage.

1. I would laugh if the score forced a re-vote as it could easily fail to pass in a re-vote.

2. Been waiting on that. I bet it is difficult figuring out all the aspects of ACA

that will be rescinded, and how the GOPer Bill will affect us moving forward.

It would probably be easier to just issue a single page report that says --

"ACA needed some improvements. GOPer/Ryan Bill does not provide any. In fact, the legislation makes things much worse. Every American -- except for the wealthy who will recieve a yugely tax cut -- will eventually be hurt by the GOPer/Ryan plan, whether or not they are on Medicare or Medicaid, insured by their employer, have pre-existing conditions, believe God will keep their family healthy, refuse to pay one nickel to help those without coverage, etc."

3. That is too long a descrption

The Simple version:

If you are the 1% here's a massive tax cut, if you are amongst the rest please start planning your funeral

4. I get it. But a high percentage of ignorant white wingers just don't support a plan where they pay

anything toward someone else.

Saw one of the news programs a couple of weeks ago. They were interviewing some yokels who were asked why they were against "Obamacare." There response was that they did not want to pay one penny toward someone else's care. It was really that simple to them.

There is a big group of stupid GOPers that just do not support having to contribute for anyone else. Then, there are the ones who think Obamacare is a backdoor to abortion or some such junk.
