20M Would Lose Health Coverage Under Trump Plan (9M Would Gain Coverage Under Clinton)

So that’s a 29 million person swing according to RAND.  But they’re the same, right.  It’s all just the establishment, man!  It’s Gush/Bore all over again!

Oh and the 9M under Clinton doesn’t include the potential of more states to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act and Clinton’s plan to allow more middle-aged people to buy into Medicare.

The health care report follows another recent analysis that delved into the candidates’ tax proposals. That study by the nonpartisan Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget found that Trump’s latest tax proposals would increase federal debt by $5.3 trillion over the next decade, compared with $200 billion if Clinton’s ideas were enacted. The Trump campaign disputed those findings.

I expect these things to come up in the debates – it would be the first time people watching them would learn these seemingly relevant tidbits.
