    “The changes noted above will affect many elements of a detailed estimate of the impact of H.R. 2, but they will probably not have a major effect on the overall budgetary impact of the bill through 2019.” The period analyzed had to be extended by 3 years to come up with the $230B number.

    Bruce – CBO is very clear that repealing the reform bill will add to the deficit. The longer the law has been in place, the more savings increase, especially in later years. But glad you agree that repeal of the health reform law will add billions to our debt.

    In fact, the health care law will save tons more money — and save it more than a decade sooner — than Paul Ryan’s kooky “cut everything” budget plan will.
