Rep. Chris Collins Disputes CBO Score on AHCA Revisions

Rep. Chris Collins disputes the Congressional Budget Office's scoring of the American Health Care Act proposal revisions, he said Friday on CNN's "New Day."

"We don't agree with the CBO score on the people who are going to lose coverage," the New York Republican said, referring to the score of the revised bill.

"On something like this, I can't wrap my head around how they think we're losing 14 million people in a year when there's no change . . . There's no change on the exchanges, no change in Medicaid expansion, no change whatsoever. Now how do you get your arms around something that says we're losing 14 million people when there isn't even a single change?" Collins said.

Collins said Thursday night on MSNBC that Republicans will explain the legislation after it is passed. "In my district right now there's a lot of misunderstanding about what we're doing. And once we get it done, and then we can have the chance to really explain it," he said.
