In Washington, D.C., the Congressional Budget Office is slated to release its assessment of a House Republican healthcare bill as early as today. Ahead of the report’s release, the Brookings Institution estimated as many as 15 million people will lose coverage under the American Health Care Act within 10 years. The legislation would also give huge tax relief to the wealthiest Americans. According to the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation, those earning more than $1 million annually would save an estimated $165 billion in taxes over 10 years.
