On Monday, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) finally released their analysis of the recently released Republican Health Care Bill, known to many as "Trumpcare." After the CBO was critical of the bill in question, it resulted in a wide-range of opinions, which was evident during the latest episode of "The View."

A view of Trumpcare

For the eight years that former President Barack Obama was in the White House, Republicans made it their top priority to repeal the affordable care act, or "Obamacare." Attacking Obamacare became the number one talking point for Republicans, and was the top issue highlighted by candidates running for office.

With the election of Donald Trump, and with Republicans in majority control of the House of Representatives and the Senate, it was only a matter of time before the Affordable Care Act was put on the chopping block. Last week, House Republicans rolled out their replacement plan, but it was hit with backlash from Democrats, and even some conservatives, like Sen. Rand Paul. After the CBO found that as many as 24 million people would lose their insurance over the next decade if the bill was put into law, it became a hot topic during the March 14 edition of "The View."

Co-host Joy Behar opened up the segment by highlighting the CBO's findings, stating, "The prognosis is grim. It would leave 52 million people uninsured by 2026.

Give tax breaks to the rich. Cut into Medicaid," Behar said, before cutting to a clip of Donald Trump during the campaign trail where he vowed to protect Medicaid, and not cut it. Behar returned from the clip and mocked the president over what appeared to be another falsehood.

Heated debate

Co-host Jedediah Bila then took the air out of the room when she argued that her opposition to the GOP health care bill was that it just wasn't conservative enough, as she attempted to make the case that there was too much government involvement.

At this point, fellow "The View" co-host Sunny Hostin pointed out that the rise in health care costs didn't come from the government, but rather from insurance companies hiking up the prices. The panel continued to argue over whether or not the law should include a government mandate, while the rest of the panel shot down Bila's argument by pointing out how the Republican bill will include tax credits for the wealthy and the young, while putting a financial burden on low-income Americans and the elderly.
