The Tri-Com Bill Gets Scored
The Congressional Budget Office's score for the new House bill is out as well. (Boy, did my afternoon just get busy.) The quick version is it's projected to carry a net cost of $1 trillion over 10 years and cover 97 percent of the country's legal residents. The CBO score does not include the plan's revenue measures, so it's unclear, at this point, whether the cost is full or partially offset by the surtax, the Medicare and Medicaid savings, the employer and individual mandate, and the assorted other funding streams.
