The GOP Health Care Plan Could Wipe Out Nearly a Million Jobs: Study

The GOP Health Care Plan Could Wipe Out Nearly a Million Jobs: StudyThe American Health Care Act passed by the House of Representatives could be a serious job killer. If the bill were to pass the Senate in its current form (the Senate is working on its version of the bill in secret so it’s hard to say just how different the Senate version is), the economy would lose 924,000 jobs over the next decade, according to a new report from George Washington University’s Milken Institute School of Public Health and the Commonwealth Fund.
