The nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office’s latest scoring of the House Republican replacement to Obamacare shows that by next year, 14 million people would lose health coverage, while a total 23 million would lose insurance within a decade.
The CBO’s report Wednesday takes into account amendments attached to the American Health Care Act (AHCA) on May 4, shortly before the House bill’s partisan passage which was nearly denied by just two votes. This is the AHCA’s second scoring by the CBO, which released its first report in March.
Around 23 million Americans would lose health care insurance by 2026, the new report found. The CBO had previously projected 24 million people losing health coverage. However, it remains unclear how much, if any, good news the Senate Republicans can take away from the government report.
But behind the scenes, Lewandowski’s role in the campaign is shrinking.
In early March, Lewandowski ceded authority over many hiring decisions to a lower-ranking staffer.
In recent days, the campaign’s press office has been overruling his decisions about issuing credentials for campaign events.
Going forward, Trump’s just-named convention manager, Paul Manafort, is expected to take a leading role not just in the selection of delegates, but in the remaining primaries themselves, according to three people on or close to the campaign.
The shift is, in part, a natural outgrowth of the campaign’s maturation.
NBC News reported on Friday: Secret Service Tightens Trump’s Security Amidst New Threats
“The Secret Service is ramping up their presence around Donald Trump as the joint terrorism task force investigates a suspicious envelope with powder that was delivered to Trump’s son.”
The NBC report aired before it was revealed that Trump’s sister, federal appeals court judge Maryanne Trump Barry, had also been sent a threatening letter that was received Friday but did not contain any powder.
