Before I looked into this article, to be honest, I had no idea what CBO was. And I’m glad that I know what it is and that i’ll be able to look into it more deeply if I want to know more information about it. What I learned from reading this is that many people wouldn’t know is that insurance will change and that many people will be affected by this new Better Care Reconciliation. In addition, about 15 millions people will be uninsured just in the near year, 2018. To think about this, it is very close, it is next year. It is kind of scary how everything might change in the near future. According to the article, about 22 million people will not have insurance by the year of 2026. Because under this new legislation, penalty for not having insurance will be eliminated so that’s why many people will be uninsured.
Now, I want to know if this new legislation is worth it. I mean, what I am seeing is that a lot of people will be uninsured. That’s a negative thing. It looks like this new legislation is not making things easier for low income families. Many low income families will suffer because of this. That is what it looks like so far from what I read. It would be more negative than positive. Well, I might find out more about it if I search Better Care Reconciliation of 2017 since there are a lot of information online whether it is through federal websites or just news.
