As the debate over health care heats up, the Congressional Budget Office (Cbo) released their score of Donald Trump's bill that is currently sitting in the Senate. As expected, the review was not positive, causing the president and the White House to lash out.

Trump on CBO

When Donald Trump first announced his campaign for president back in the summer of 2015, one of his main talking points was promising to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as "Obamacare." During the entire 2016 presidential election, Trump vowed that he would make health care "great," making endless promises to potential voters in the process.

Fast forward to present day and the former host of "The Apprentice" is the new commander in chief and he's spent various times during his first six months in office trying to push through a new Health Care Bill. After initially stalling in the House of Representatives last month due to conservative backlash, the GOP bill known as "Trumpcare" found its way to the Senate where it was made public last week. On Thursday, the CBO released their score which found that as many as 22 million people would lose their health care under Trumpcare over the next decade. In response, Trump's White House released a statement pushing back at the CBO's findings.

In a statement released shortly after the CBO released their score of the health care bill, the White House didn't hold back when doing their best to discredit the Congressional Budget Office.

"The CBO has consistently proven it cannot accurately predict how healthcare legislation will impact insurance coverage," the statement read, while accusing the CBO of having a "history of inaccuracy" by citing their alleged "flawed report" of Obamacare.

"As more and more people continue to lose coverage and face fewer healthcare choices, President Trump is committed to repealing and replacing Obamacare," the White House statement continued, while adding that the Affordable Care Act "has failed the American people for far too long." Despite Trump and company defending the bill, not all Republicans in Washington are on board, as well as many GOP governors around the country speaking out in opposition.

While the future of the GOP health care bill remains unclear, considering Republicans hold majority-control of all of Congress as well as the presidency, the chances are good that Trumpcare becomes law. With the backlash that has already surrounded the bill, only time will tell if it will have a negative impact on the GOP moving forward.
