Trump’s health Bill to render 23m uninsured

Trump's health Bill to render 23m uninsured
Not fewer than 23 million people would lose health insurance over the next decade under the revised Republican healthcare plan, experts says .

Fourteen million people would be uninsured in 2018 alone, according to the Congressional Budget Office.

The analysis said federal deficits would fall by $119bn (£91bn) from 2017-2026 under the proposal, which is championed by President Donald Trump.

House Republicans were criticised for passing the bill before the assessment.

The revised bill would provide $8bn over five years to help sick people, including those with cancer, pay for coverage.

But many health policy experts say the amount is far from enough to cover the cost.
