On Wednesday the House of Representatives held its 50th vote to repeal and/or alter Obamacare, this time with the goal of delaying the individual mandate. It went as you might expect: passed the House, won't become law.
If it were to become law, the good news for opponents is that the Congressional Budget Office predicts the federal deficit would be reduced by about $9 billion over the next decade. The bad news is that about 1 million fewer people would get insurance this year, in addition to the one million who probably wouldn't enroll because of the law's botched rollout. (Though that will save an estimated $9 billion, too.)
Your definition of good and bad may vary, depending on your views on the Affordable Care Act. Obamacare exists to, among other things, lower the number of uninsured. House bills like the one considered today — the Suspending the Individual Mandate Penalty Law Equals ("SIMPLE," get it?) Fairness Act — tout reducing the deficit as a plus. Still, that's secondary to revamping the law. "The individual mandate and tax penalty are the underpinnings of the President’s healthcare plan," reads the GOP seeking to delay said mandate.
