Read the linked CBO report. I quote: "The majority of that increase would stem from repealing the penalties associated with the individual mandate." Pffft. 8 million will pay the mandate penalties this year, compared to about 13 million who partook of the ACA. The CBO is trying to scare us by yelling "Boo" in a closet. I don't think as many people will flee as they project - because the private-sector options are too costly, and most can't afford to go care-less. Guardian's letting me down.
