Office of Management and Budget (OMB) Head Mark Mulvaney was on Morning Joe today and he discussed the healthcare proposal. One thing that Mulvaney is clear about is that the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) is way off in its estimates with the healthcare proposal.
Let’s say your on Medicaid. The House bill passes tomorrow. The CBO claims that you will go off of Medicaid. Ok. It’s a free program but the CBO assumes that as soon as the mandate is gone that you will give up something free in exchange for nothing. That makes no sense.
